(GermanPolicy.com) – The Greens have expressed dissatisfaction with the coalition negotiations leading to the formation of a new Federal Government. The Greens’ Federal Managing Director Michael Kellner commented on the faltering talks with the words: “We are currently seeing too little progress in terms of the substance of the matter.”
The traffic light parties – the SPD, the Greens and the FDP – have been negotiating for some time and have set the goal of forming a government in early to mid-December. However, at this time, no detailed timetable can be presented to the public. This results from an interim balance of 22 negotiating working groups, which, according to the SPD and FDP, should finish their work by Wednesday of the coming week. According to media reports, the two working groups that negotiate climate and finances are still divided.
