Berlin / The leadership of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) lead by Chancellor Angela Merkel and the German Social Democratic Party (SPD) led by Martin Schulz confirmed today that they have reached an agreement for a grand coalition government.
“Tired, but happy”, highlighted through social networks the main leaders of the SPD, along with a “selfi” in which the president of the party, Martin Schulz, appears smiling in the last row next to his colleagues in the delegation.
As explained, the agreement is ready and now works only in the final details of the text, which will then be analysed by the 35 members of the negotiating team.
“It’s a really good day for our country, the chances of having a new government soon are very great, we have a coalition agreement that is very positive for many citizens,” ratified the acting Finance Minister and CDU leader, Peter. Altmaier, who confessed that he was going to shower to return later to new meetings.
The Social Christian Union (CSU) of Bavaria, the Bavarian wing of the CDU of Merkel, was also satisfied with an agreement that, according to its secretary general, Andreas Scheuer, collects “good” commitments after “tough” negotiations.
The news of the pact leaked to the media after 24 hours of uninterrupted negotiations in Berlin, and exceeded the deadline that the parties had given to reach an agreement.
According to various leaks, the Social Democrats will be in charge of six ministries, including Finance, Foreign Affairs and Labor, and Schulz may be the future head of German diplomacy.
The formation of the government now depends on the binding consultation to which the 463,723 members of the SPD are summoned, a party divided by the reissue of the grand coalition with Merkel after its electoral debacle last September. (February 7, 2018, EFE/Practica Español)
