Merkel resumes talks to end political stalemate

AFP

BERLIN: Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives resume on Wednesday drawn-out talks with Germany's second biggest party aimed at ending months of post-election stalemate and forming a coalition government, reports AFP.

In the year's first such meeting, Merkel and her Bavarian ally Horst Seehofer were scheduled to talk with Martin Schulz, the leader of the centre-left Social Democrats (SPD), from about 1400 GMT.

They hope to lay the groundwork for a week of exploratory talks from Sunday which -- if all sides can overcome major policy differences and lingering distrust -- could lead to a new "grand coalition" government by perhaps March or April.

However, the joyless effort to give a new lease of life to the alliance now running the top EU economy in a caretaker role was complicated this week when Seehofer's CSU presented a series of hardline positions that run counter to SPD demands.
