Merkel's CDU agrees coalition with SPD in Germany: reports
Friday, 12 January 2018 19:46 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservative CDU party has reached an agreement with Martin Schulz's center-left SPD to form a governing coalition, a report showed.

The Germans voted in a general election on Sept. 24, where Merkel's party came out with the most votes, but fell short of an outright majority.

Merkel first tried to form a coalition with the Greens and the FDP, but turned to the social democrats after those talks collapsed.

The SPD was also in a coalition with the CDU in the previous government, but had vowed not to take on the role as junior partner again.
