Söder does not rule out a Union-led grand coalition

(GermanPolicy.com) – Markus Söder (CSU), the Bavarian Prime Minister, has not ruled out cooperation with the SPD in a government after the Federal Election. “A grand coalition can come back with the SPD if it gets weaker,” he said. “The decisive factor is that we are stronger than the SPD, because the claim to leadership in the Federal Government derives from this.” Söder assumes “that we still have a chance to pass by the SPD.”

CSU secretary-general Markus Blume has meanwhile criticized Olaf Scholz (SPD). If the SPD candidate for Chancellor made the EU “a debt union”, Scholz would hold German citizens responsible for errors committed in other European countries. Germany is facing major challenges due to the Covid-19 pandemic. “We have to do everything we can to ensure that we are not left behind technologically, that we combine ecology and the economy, that we in Europe do not slide into a new debt crisis,” added Blume.
