SPD chairman Norbert Walter Borgens believes a new German government with the SPD, FDP and Green Party could take over by December.
Walter Burgess argues in favor of not having endless exploratory conversations. “We can start formal coalition negotiations in October and finish in December,” he told Die Welt newspaper.
The leaders of the Greens and the Free Democratic Party said earlier this week that they had “good initial talks” about possible cooperation in a new government. Gruen’s party leader Barbock and FDP leader Wesing wrote on Instagram that agreements had been pursued. “And we even found a few. Exciting times.” The two parties play a key role in a new alliance, but it remains to be seen whether they choose a government with the SPD or the CDU/CSU Christian Democrats.
The SPD led by Olaf Schulz won the German elections on Sunday with 25.7 percent of the vote. The CDU/Social Union of Armin Laschet had the worst national result in its history at 24.1 percent. Some prominent CDU members want to replace Laschet if he fails to form a coalition with the Greens and the Free Democratic Party, they told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper today.
Both Schulze and Lachette have previously said they want to go out before Christmas.
