Leader of the Social Democratic Party (SPD) Martin Schulz called for the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), the Bavarian Christian Social Union (CSU), the Free Democratic Party (FDP) and the Greens, to persist in finding a coalition agreement. The statement was given at a press conference in Berlin on Friday. «I appeal to the parties involved that they should follow the protocol, they should... Еще negotiate seriously and then eventually come to a conclusion,» said Schulz. The SPD leader continued: «Either it works, or it does not work. It would be good for Germany if we had a stable government.» Finally, Schulz urged the potential 'Jamaica' coalition parties to take action as fast as possible, since «Germany cannot wait, and Europe cannot wait.» If negotiations between the parties are successful, CDU/CSU, the Greens and FDP could form a so-called 'Jamaica' coalition.
