Parties of Germany seek a common ground to create a coalition


The German parties, which are trying to form the next government of the country, have found a common language in the areas of social policy and digital infrastructure. Yet, they still have disagreements over issues that sparked violent clashes last week, Reuters reports.

Negotiations between conservatives, "greens" and free Democrats resumed on Monday, after Chancellor Angela Merkel convened a weekend meeting to defuse the situation between ideologically different parties.

The leader of the Conservative Party, which is the sister party of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), says the pause benefits all parties. Other party leaders agreed with this statement.

However, negotiations on a number of issues related to education, digital technology, pensions and labor issues, as well as internal security, were not expected to cause such disputes as immigration policy, as well as tax and climate issues, which caused fierce disputes last week.

On October 20, German Chancellor Angela Merkel embarked on the first round of negotiations on the creation of a trilateral coalition called the Jamaican Coalition (Christian Democrats, Free Democrats and Green).

Merkel will have work with this coalition; otherwise, she risks losing power after 12 years at her post.

Negotiations between the conservative bloc Merkel, free democrats (FDP) and "greens" were called "trial", but their participants are eager to move on to discuss the details of fiscal and budgetary policy at their first full joint meeting.

The three-component combination, called the Jamaica coalition, because the colors of the three sides - black, yellow and green, have not yet got a chance to come to power at the national level.

Merkel, whose power weakened somewhat after the unexpectedly strong support of the extreme right in the last election last month, should achieve a rather uncomfortable alliance, as her former coalition partners, the left-wing Social Democrats (SPD), decided to create an opposition bloc after the biggest election defeat since 1933.
