A bit more from the linked article:

Mr. Di Rupo is a self- made, outspoken homosexual of Italian origin, a man who grew up in a single-parent family in abject poverty. His hard upbringing has made him very popular with Walloons—his resistance to Flemish demands for more autonomy even more so.

The flip side is that Mr. Di Rupo remains totally disconnected from Flemish reality and appears utterly incapable of learning Dutch. This makes it difficult if not impossible for him to explain and sell his government’s policies in the northern part of his country, and forces him to rely on his deputies when he wants to speak to Flemish constituents. Mainly because of his inability to communicate, public opinion in Flanders is that Mr. Di Rupo has effectively failed as prime minister.
