The leader of the Christian Democratic Union Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer weighed in on Germany’s grand coalition government following a two-day closed-doors party meeting at their headquarters in Berlin on Monday after the Social Democratic Party (SPD) leader Andrea Nahles resigned in a move that potentially jeopardises the future of Germany's coalition government.
«We are willing to continue... Еще carrying on with this coalition in the sense of reliability, of designing the future,» stressed the CDU chief.
«How the SPD acts further is their decision,» added Kramp-Karrenbauer.
Despite the CDU/CSU alliance receiving the largest number of votes in the recent EU parliament elections, their support dropped about seven percent compared to 2014.
There are concerns within the CDU that a new SPD leader could withdraw their party from the ruling GroKo coalition, forcing new elections when both parties are polling at historic lows.
