Two Deutsche Welle journalists crossed Germany to chart the mood ahead of the general election. The resulting film shows the breadth of opinion, reveals which issues voters care most about, and asks whether Angela Merkel can win a fourth time.
Embattled former European Parliament President Martin Schulz has resigned as the head of Germany's Social Democrats. Andrea Nahles has been nominated to take his place, but she still faces a party vote in April.
Martin Schulz's Social Democrats are negotiating a new "grand coalition" with Merkel's conservatives. He reportedly told SPD colleagues he will seek a ministerial post, despite previously ruling out such a move.
It is unknown in the history of modern Germany: Three months after the election the country still doesn't have a new government. How can it be that Merkel's CDU remains on the hunt for a coalition partner?
In an exclusive interview with DW, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, the new leader of Germany's Christian Democrats (CDU), has said that she wants Angela Merkel to see out her remaining three years as chancellor.
