German Chancellor Angela Merkel, early declared about the failure of coalition talks, said he did not want to create a minority coalition and would prefer to bring the country to new elections.
Merkel also stressed that, despite the failure of the negotiations, she saw no reason to resign from the post of Chancellor of Germany.
Coalition talks collapsed after the Free democratic party of Germany stated that they should not enter into a coalition with the CDU/CSU because of the «loss of mutual confidence.»
The President of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier called on the parties to reconsider their positions and to compromise for the good of the country, given the unprecedented, according to the President, the situation.
We will remind, in September in Germany elections to the Bundestag. Block Merkel received the highest number of votes, in second place were the social Democrats. Third place in this election, took the right-wing party «Alternative for Germany», scored 12.6% of the votes. We are talking about the unprecedented success of the extreme right, which for the first time since the Second world war represented in the Bundestag.
The liberal Free democratic party (FDP) gained 10.7 percent, the Left party — 9,2% and the party «Soyuz-90″/»green» — 8,9%.
Following the elections the leaders of the Social democratic party, formerly in coalition, have stated that they intend at this time to remain in opposition.
Thus, if a coalition is not part of the FDP, Merkel can either again go for elections or form a narrow coalition with «Green».
