Turkey is putting its trust in the country's ruling AKP to govern on its own. DW asked Martin Schulz, President of the European Parliament, whether the election result was good or bad news for the EU.
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.
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."
Party leader Martin Schulz opened the event with an apology for the party's worst-ever election results. The SPD plans to hold a vote on entering preliminary talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel's CDU later in the day.
Even an acting government can rule, asserts the German Chancellery. But with each day that passes, it becomes increasingly clear that it's time to put together a new government, writes DW's Jens Thurau.
