Germany’s kingmakers ready for coalition talks with Social Democrats

Germany’s liberals and Greens have decided to hold three-way exploratory talks with the Social Democrats (SPD) to form a coalition government, party leaders announced on Wednesday.

Christian Lindner, leader of the liberal Free Democratic Party (FDP), said they are ready to begin discussions with the Social Democrats this week to see whether the parties can find common ground to form the country’s next government.

“We have accepted the Greens’ proposal to begin three-way exploratory talks with the SPD,” Lindner told a news conference in Berlin after internal discussions among top party officials.

Lindner said he has told Olaf Scholz, the SPD’s chancellor candidate, that the parties’ first meeting can take place on Thursday.
