German Chancellor candidate Olaf Scholz announced the readiness of the three parties to form the country’s government, RIA Novosti reports.
In particular, the Social Democrats, the Greens and the Free Democratic Party agreed to start coalition talks.
The final round of sounding talks after the September 26 elections took place today. The parties agreed on the final document, which now has to be approved by the party bodies, after which the coalition negotiations will start. Their result should be a coalition agreement and the distribution of ministerial portfolios. They usually last for weeks or even months.
Scholz said earlier that the FRG government could be formed by Christmas.
Prior to this, the German Cabinet of Ministers rejected statements about Russia’s non-compliance with gas supply contracts. The Bundestag believes that the early commissioning of Nord Stream 2 will help reduce gas prices in Europe.
In September, the Central Executive Committee of the Federal Republic of Germany spoke about the composition of the new Bundestag.
