Schulz Says He Won't Enter German Coalition Government

CSU leader Horst Seehofer Chancellor Angela Merkel and SPD chief Martin Schulz sealed a deal after months of wrangling

The move by Schmidt, a conservative, effectively allowed the extension in glyphosate use within the European Union, despite opposition from France and from the centre-left Social Democrats (SPD) in Germany's current government coalition. That result will be announced on March 4.

Many young and leftist members are against the renewed so-called Grand Coalition between the SPD and the Union.

Andrea Nahles takes over as SPD leader and is expected to rebuild the party, which suffered its worst ever result in September's election.

All of this could go down well with SPD party members, who will vote on any final coalition deal.

Hallelujah. After more than four months of political haggling, Germany at long last has a government, a Grand Coalition - or GroKo as it is now known by its German-language acronym - composed of the Christian Democrats (CDU) and the centre-left Social Democrats (SPD). Schulz has lost his credibility and his reputation.

A Forsa poll showed nearly three-quarters of Germans thought it would be wrong for Schulz to become foreign minister, while only around a quarter thought that would be the right move. "I sincerely hope that this (decision) will end the personnel debates within the SPD", Schulz, a former president of the European Parliament, said in a statement.

Meetings in Berlin take place a few hours after Merkel's conservatives agreed with Martin Schultz's Social Democratic Party to form a coalition government. It looks unlikely to hit trouble there, despite discontent over the party losing the finance and interior ministries.

Mr Joffe added the election last year was a "popular vote of no-confidence" after losing supporters to the Alternative for Germany (AfD) following years of political turmoil after Europe's migration crisis in 2015, insisting it is now a "cosmic joke" the two parties are joining forces.

Asked if Sigmar Gabriel would remain foreign minister, she said party leaders would soon decide on a way forward, but their primary focus now was securing a "yes" vote from rank and file. The move drew criticism from SPD members, who believed their party should reinvent itself in opposition.

More money is being pledged for social welfare and care for the elderly, for implementing fast broadband internet connections, boosting housing construction or fixing Germany's roads.

Merkel faced an uphill struggle to maintain power for another four years following a disastrous election campaign.

Schulz's retreat is also far from certain to ensure approval in the upcoming postal ballot of some 460,000 Social Democrats, and will do nothing to quiet grumbling among Merkel's troops over the coalition deal.

The SPD served as a junior government partner under Mrs Merkel from 2013-17.
