DW editor-in-chief Ines Pohl and reporter Jaafar Abdul-Karim speak with Martin Schulz, party leader and candidate for Germany's Social Democratic Party (SPD).
Leader of Germany's Social Democrats Martin Schulz has called for a "United States of Europe" by 2025. But what did he mean? And where does that lead the SPD? The former European Parliament president told DW more.
Germany's Social Democrats have voted to start talks that could lead to a new government coalition. Over 80 percent of delegates also voted to keep Martin Schulz as SPD chairman. DW's Kate Brady was on-site in Berlin.
In an exclusive DW interview, Merkel's challenger criticized her campaign motto and lack of leadership. He was also highly critical of Turkish President Erdogan, saying he would not be blackmailed on refugee policy.
After talks with the leaders of the failed coalition parties, up next for President Frank-Walter Steinmeier is SPD leader Martin Schulz. Will he cave in to demands from his party to entertain another grand coalition?
