Greens chairman Annalena Baerbock sees commonalities between the FDP and the Greens “especially in the area of civil rights, in the area of a modern society and immigration society”. Trust is crucial for good cooperation, Baerbock emphasized. “In the area of digitization, the modernization of our administration, there have already been joint initiatives between the Liberals and the Greens in the German Bundestag in recent years.” It is important not to think that climate protection is on the one hand and economic policy on the other.

On Monday, Hofreiter had said in his view, a coalition with the SPD and FDP was more likely than a Jamaica coalition with the CDU-CSU and the FDP.
