GERMAN PRESIDENT CALLS MERKEL AND SCHULZ TO SPEAK OF GOVERNMENT

Berlin / German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier has convened a meeting early next week between Chancellor Angela Merkel and Social Democrat Martin Schulz to try to unblock the formation of a government and avoid new elections.

The meeting will take place on Monday or Tuesday of next week and will also be attended by the Bavarian leader Horst Seehofer, whose party is twinned with the Christian Democrats of Merkel.

The announcement follows the interview held yesterday by Schulz with President Steinmeier from the Social Democratic Party and former Minister of Merkel in his two major coalitions.

Schulz has repeatedly rejected a reissue of the grand coalition as led by Merkel in its first and third terms.

After his meeting with the president, Schulz met for eight hours with the leadership of his party.

Already at dawn, from the Social Democrats expressed willingness to “dialogue” to help solve the political crisis.

Among the alternatives that are considered in the case of maintaining the no to a grand coalition is that of a minority government, but with enough parliamentary support to guarantee a stable legislature.
