To image-Information, a coffee machine and a large refrigerator were brought to the negotiation room in the Willy-Brandt-Haus in the afternoon. The conclusion: one is preparing for long negotiations.
According to the report, there is still no agreement on how a share pension, which the FDP wants, should be financed. In addition, the Greens’ desire for a right to veto climate will continue to be hotly debated. And there are also unanswered questions about the distribution of ministries and their layout. The sticking point is according to information from the portal Business Insider (BI) the cut of the climate ministry – possibly the department of Greens boss Robert Habeck. In addition, it is still open who should take over the Ministry of Health in the Corona crisis.
“We are not very far yet. That lasts until after midnight, “quotes the image Greens managing director Michael Kellner. According to BI the climate veto on Monday was the point at which the parties got so caught up that they finally adjourned.

According to the report, the corona crisis increasingly came to the fore. Then a surprising step: In the late afternoon, Olaf Scholz, Christian Lindner, Robert Habeck and Annalena Baerbock met Angela Merkel at short notice to talk about the current Corona situation. The Chancellor criticized the rules in force in the Traffic Light Act on Monday.
After just under an hour, the traffic light head left the Chancellery and continued the coalition talks. According to the report, the last points of contention in the coalition agreement should now be clarified. This should be finished that night. The contract should then be presented on Wednesday!
Traffic light before the final showdown? The current schedule is now public – the pressure is increasing
First report from November 23rd: Berlin – The traffic light negotiations are now again a matter for the boss – possibly final: A new “main round of negotiations” is to take place on Wednesday. That became public on Tuesday from negotiating circles. In this round, which is reported to have 18 members, it is mainly the party leaders who have their turn.
On Monday, the general secretaries of the SPD, Greens and FDP had apparently once again entered into an exchange. Lars Klingbeil, Michael Kellner and Volker Wissing undertook “editorial work” to review the previous negotiations, as the dpa reported, citing negotiating circles. The AFP news agency learned that further preparations should be made on Tuesday “at the top level”.
Traffic light coalition: negotiations before the conclusion – still a secret about the distribution of ministries
Recently, some content from the upcoming coalition agreement had already leaked to the public – for example on the subject of health. On the whole, however, the conversations between the traffic light parties remain a well-kept secret. This also applies to the possible ministerial staff. So far, nothing more than speculation has been heard.
Apparently the talks are not going as smoothly as hoped. According to a report by mirrors some negotiators assumed in the meantime that they could already be finished on the weekend – on the last one, mind you. Greens boss Annalena Baerbock also openly admitted that in the meantime they had been “fed up”.
At the same time, it is clear that the time pressure on the negotiators of the SPD, Greens and FDP is increasing. Last week the general secretaries announced an ambitious plan. A coalition agreement is to be presented this week, between November 22nd and 28th. If this wish is to come true, then the talks on Wednesday would have to be the final agreements at the highest level.
Traffic light negotiators under pressure: Scholz should be elected Chancellor in two weeks
That would probably also be necessary in order to keep to a schedule that was announced loudly at an early stage. At the start of the coalition talks on October 21st, the traffic light parties announced that SPD candidate for Chancellor Olaf Scholz would be elected Chancellor from December 6th during St. Nicholas Week and that his government would be sworn in in the Bundestag.
If they are to keep this promise, the future coalition partners will not have much time to complete their negotiations. The Greens want to ask their members about the coalition agreement. A party congress decides in the SPD. (fn / dpa)
