The failure of "Jamaica": Merkel could not create a broad coalition in the Bundestag

18
In Germany, negotiations on the creation of a so-called “big” coalition led by Angela Merkel failed completely. In German political circles, the potential coalition was called "Jamaica", but as it turned out, "Jamaica" ordered to live long before it was born.


The Social Democrats (SPD) refused to join the coalition structure with the CDU / CSU Angela Merkel. Earlier, representatives of the liberal Free Democratic Party came out of the coalition negotiations. Thus, Angela Merkel was able to form a bloc only with the German “Greens”, which leads to the result only in 44% of mandates in the Bundestag (German parliament).

The failure of "Jamaica": Merkel could not create a broad coalition in the Bundestag


On Twitter io. The head of the SPD, Ralph Stegner, made the following entry:
The results of the parliamentary elections did not affect the fact that the tactics of preserving the “big” coalition is not correct. It remains wrong for our party today.


Thus, for the first time in recent years, Merkel cannot create a majority coalition in parliament, and this automatically leads to the fact that the question of approving her activities as Chancellor of Germany is hanging in the air. Any question in parliament will now need to be discussed more substantively with the opposition factions, which Merkel and the CSU / CDU are not used to.

      While Germany is the main trading partner of the United States, Russia doesn’t care much who is at the head of Germany

          What does he have to do with it? This is business, and there is politics. Of course, this happens and is interconnected, but this is not the case ..

    This will not lead to a change in German foreign policy. These are their internal affairs.

    The note is empty - what are the differences? What issues could they not agree on? I think I am forced to engage in speculation after reading that they did not divide the portfolios of the government - who will hold what posts, etc. I do not see other reasons at this stage. Why do we need this coalition?

        Now there are four possible scenarios.
        First, the CDU / CSU bloc could form a majority coalition with the Social Democratic Party, but it has already chosen the role of the opposition and is not going to change its mind.
        The second option follows from this: Merkel could create a parliamentary minority government, for example, without the “green” or without the liberals. However, voting in the Bundestag of such a coalition will require votes from opposition factions. Third option: parties will suddenly decide to continue coalition negotiations, and the next deadline for consultations will be set.
        However, the fourth option - re-election - seems most likely.

    for the first time in recent years, Merkel cannot create a majority coalition in parliament

    In general, it is surprising that the Germans re-elected Merkel once again under her "open door" policy. It is significant that she found a common language with the “greens,” who in their essence are outright radicals and have a negative attitude to establishing normal relations with Russia.

    Looks like Aunt Merkel may go down in History.

    This is a very interesting situation, in my opinion this has not happened in Germany yet. Grandmother led Germany to a standstill with her corrupt policies. Have to form a coalition government?

      nifiga yourself a "dead end" ...
      There is no unemployment in Germany, only the sick and the lazy do not work, export somewhere around 1700 billion euros, a budget surplus of 20-30 billion euros annually. Medicine and education are equally accessible to everyone (incl. Unemployed and social workers).
      and the fact that they can’t create a coalition is normal, it repeats every 4 years. Parties are traded among themselves for government posts and a program. Now they are cursing, for example, to the extra 30 billion euros - for the development of infrastructure or for lowering taxes. The FDP wanted a tax cut, but the green ones were against it. CDU wants a tougher framework for refugees, but Greens and FDP are (partially) against. Greens want to put pressure on business for the sake of protecting nature, but the CDU and FDP are against tightening the current framework.

      Competition sir! it is completely different than "stability". Everything is stable at the cemetery, nothing changes.
