Germany's future coalition partners, the conservatives and Social Democrats are trying to agree on issues surrounding the country's switch to renewable energy - and they only have until Monday to do so.
Delegates from Germany’s Social Democratic Party have voted in favor of possibly entering another coalition with Merkel’s conservatives. But many within the party remain opposed to the idea.
Germany's Social Democratic Party is about to vote on whether to negotiate another so-called grand coalition with Angela Merkel's conservatives. If the party says "no," the chancellor's options may be running out.
Chancellor Angela Merkel says exploratory talks in Berlin between her conservatives and rival Social Democrats are to go on to formal coalition negotiations. The SPD's Martin Schulz says he'll ask his party to proceed.
The Social Democrats are fighting about their future, while others want a new party to unite the left. The disunity has been long in the making and uncomfortably recalls Germany's past, says DW's Jefferson Chase.
