Who is going to govern Germany? What does the result tell us? And what does it mean for Europe? Our guests: Werner Sonne (freier Journalist), Alan Posener (Welt), Michaela Küfner (DW)
Werner Sonne was for many years with Germany’s ARD TV network and is one of the best-known correspondents reporting on German politics.
Alan Posener is a regular columnist for the Berlin-based newspaper Die Welt.
Michaela Küfner is a DW’s political correspondent.
The center left Social Democratic Party, the third group in Germany's governing coalition, have yet to decide whether they will accept the CDU/CSU deal on migrant policy. DW has the news as it happens.
The people wanted something new and that's what they'll get. Currently being negotiated in Berlin, the next government would take the country into uncharted waters. And that's a good thing, says DW's Jefferson Chase.
German coalition talks have continued as parties clash on migration and the environment. The Merkel-led conservative block, the Greens and the market-friendly FDP had until Sunday evening to reach common ground.
Angela Merkel's conservatives and her SPD allies were understandably upbeat during the signing of Germany's grand coalition agreement in Berlin. For the opposition parties, however, plenty of skepticism remains.
