Germany’s two largest political parties have reportedly reached a deal on forming a new coalition government. However any agreement must first get the approval of the rank-and-file members of the Social Democrats. So who are they?
Chancellor Angela Merkel has won a fourth term in office. Here's a look at Germany's political parties, who they are and what they want.
The head of Germany's center-left SPD defended the party's stricter stance on asylum policy. Andrea Nahles said it was "a big mistake" for the Green party to oppose designating more countries as "safe" for deportations.
German Cabinet members have agreed to the main points of a new skilled immigration law, according to media reports. But leading politicians disagree on offering job prospects to well-integrated immigrants denied asylum.
The former German chancellor unveiled his top three picks to succeed Merkel. The interview is likely to unsettle his Social Democrats as one notable person didn't make Schröder's shortlist — the current head of the SPD.
