Global week ahead for December 2-9: A power shift in Luxembourg; tree lighting in Washington; election in India

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Luxembourg City's mayor Xavier Bettel is slated to become the country's next prime minister, following the end of coalition talks on Friday that usher in a Liberal government for the first time in decades.

Bettel's swearing-in on December 4 will be part of a week that includes a meeting of a national Malay organization, a campaign-style visit to South Carolina by Texas Governor Rick Perry and the lighting of the Capitol Christmas tree in Washington.
