According to a report, the Greens and the FDP agreed on who should be the Federal Republic’s future finance minister. The compromise is said to be dearly paid.
Munich / Berlin – While Germany is sinking deep into the fourth wave of the coronavirus pandemic *, the SPD, Greens and FDP have been negotiating the possible traffic light coalition for weeks.

Traffic light coalition: Greens and FDP supposedly agree on finance ministers
Once again, on the same Wednesday (November 10), the only executive Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) joined the public debate and decidedly in favor of an early federal-state round. But at the same time in Berlin there was haggling over ministerial posts, influence and freedom of action in the future federal government. And thus also about power.
In focus: Mauerstrasse 69 to 75 in the capital. Specifically: the showdown between the Greens boss Robert Habeck * and FDP boss Christian Lindner for the Ministry of Finance. The news that the smaller coalition partners have supposedly come to an agreement burst into this mix. As the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) reported on Wednesday evening, the Greens no longer insist on the post of finance minister. Habeck would give in to the wrestling with Lindner. In the evening, the party denied the alleged waiver.
Traffic light coalition: expensive compromise for SPD and FDP? Greens probably want six ministries
But: The always well-informed FAZ stayed with her version. And not only that. As the report goes on to say, the FDP and the grand coalition partner SPD pay a high price for the compromise. Accordingly, the Greens defined six ministries that they want to claim for themselves. It’s loud FAZ the Federal Foreign Office and the transport, agriculture, environment, family and transformation departments.
This would mean that the party would do without the second key department: the Federal Ministry of the Interior. The ultimately unsuccessful Green Chancellor candidate Annalena Baerbock * was repeatedly named as a possible foreign minister in a red-yellow-green alliance.
