Merkel and Schulz Track a new big coalition to avoid other elections in Germany

The Christian Democrat Union of Chancellor, Angela Merkel (CDU), and social Democracy of Martin Schulz (SPD), have managed to close a framework agreement to form a new grand coalition and end political crisis that Germany maintains with a government in office For 111 days. The negotiating teams on both sides have been meeting all night to close this principle of agreement. From now on negotiations begin with aim of defining program and forming a new executive.

  • "I am convinced that re will be a government with a broad and stable majority led by Merkel"

The principle of agreement has been managed to close during a marathon meeting of more than 24 hours. In addition, signing today will still have to be submitted during day for approval to leaders of parties concerned. It will be with that approval when meetings begin between two parties to try to close final agreement to reach grand coalition.

Although Merkel won German elections last September, she did so without a majority enough to form a government. And although in recent weeks Chancellor has tried to form an executive with Liberals and Greens — so-called Jamaica coalition — this attempt failed to reach a good port.

The Chancellor n renewed idea of a new big coalition with Social Democrats, like one that has ruled in Germany for eight of last 12 years. The alternatives were very few more: to remain in a minority government, rejected so far by chancellor, or repetition of elections.

Five days have passed enclosed representatives of CDU, CSU — Bavarian ally of Chancellor's conservative bloc — and SPD, with morning-to-night differences. The future of Europe, migration, taxes or health system are subjects that separate big German parties.

The negotiations have taken a sideways look at far right, rubbing ir hands before a German misrule, which in ir view demonstrated inability of traditional politicians.
