In Berlin, the Social Democrats and the conservatives are preparing for more negotiations about their future government's policies.
Germany's conservative and Social Democratic leaders are meeting to discuss the possibility of forming a new "grand coalition" government. After initial cold feet from the SPD, what are the chances of success?
The SPD leader has denied that his party has been "sulking" since its historically bad election result. The SPD, CDU and CSU are to meet on Wednesday for preliminary talks over a renewal of their "grand coalition."
Germany's Social Democrats face a dilemma. Should they form another grand coalition with Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives? Many in the party are skeptical. A conference in Berlin is supposed to provide answers.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has held talks with SPD head Martin Schulz in an effort to break the country's political deadlock. SPD politicians have said there's no hurry to agree to another grand coalition.
