In Berlin the signs seem to be on traffic lights. The parties now want to evaluate the exploratory talks and sit down again on Friday.
Berlin – Volker Wissing (FDP), Lars Klingbeil (SPD) and Michael Kellner (Greens) did not want to talk about content on Tuesday afternoon after the exploratory round. But they gave us so much: The parties are debating the big issues of politics intensively. In order to evaluate the talks of the past few days, the politicians want to create a basis for decision-making by Friday that could pave the way for coalition talks *.
In particular, FDP General Secretary Volker Wissing emphasized at the same time that the further procedure would only take place “step by step”. But Klingbeil and Kellner were a bit more optimistic: “We are on the right track,” said the SPD man with regard to the process of the explorations. But even he did not hide the fact that there is still a long way to go to a possible coalition with many hurdles lurking. * Kreiszeitung.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
