Germany's Merkel Officially Announces Coalition Talks With FDP, Greens

Sat, 7th Oct 2017 12:08

Dresden, GERMANY (Alliance News) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Saturday officially announced talks with the pro-business Free Democrats (FDP) and the Greens to form a coalition government.

The so-called Jamaica coalition - known as such because the three parties' colours of black, yellow and green correspond with those of the Jamaican flag - is untried at the national level.

Merkel admitted that the negotiations would be difficult, but that the task was to form a reliable government.

The Jamaica route became Merkel's only option when the Social Democrats (SPD), her Christian Democrats' (CDU) junior partner in the outgoing grand coalition, went into the opposition following a historically low election result of 20.5%.
