German coalition talks collapse after FDP withdraws

German coalition talks collapse
The three-party exploratory talks for the formation of Germany's new government failed late Sunday night after the Free Democratic Party (FDP) pulled out due to unbridgeable differences in immigration and energy.


FDP leader Christian Lindner said after the decision that there was no "basis of trust" with German Chancellor Angela Merkel's bloc of CDU (Christian Democratic Union) and CSU (Christian Social Union in Bavaria) and the Green Party.

"We don't blame anyone for sticking to their principles. But we also do so ourselves. We were voted for to reverse the current trends, but we couldn't reach an agreement. It is better not to govern than to govern badly," Lindner said on Twitter.

  1. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said she would prefer new elections to leading a minority government, after a breakdown in coalition talks plunged the country into political crisis.
    She also said she did not see any reason to resign from her post despite the failed negotiations.
