German Coalition Negotiations Failure and Associated Risks

REPORT • Nov 2017

The leader of the FDP, Christian Lindner withdrew from discussions for the proposed “Jamaica Coalition” with Angela Merkel’s Christlich Demokratische Union (Christian Democratic Union, CDU), and Die Grünen (Greens). This has removed the possibility of Angela Merkel commanding a majority government, provided she maintains her refusal to cooperate with the far-right Alternative für Deutschland (Alternative for Germany, AfD). Martin Schulz’ Sozialdemokratische Partei (Social Democratic Party, SDP) continues to resist a repeat of the previous Groβe Koalition ( grand coalition, GroKo), in which it supported the CDU.
