Magdeburg (dpa / sa) – A month after the state elections in Saxony-Anhalt, signs of black-red-yellow coalition talks are growing. On Tuesday, the CDU, the SPD and the FDP will meet for the first time in three trips to explore the possibility of a coalition government, SPD leader Andreas Schmidt and FDP leader Lydia Huskens said Tuesday morning. Earlier in the day, Mittalduich Jeetung reported on the tripartite meeting. The CDU and SPD reported to the Board of Directors on Monday evening on the status of previous studies.
So the talks should start after the constitution of the state parliament in the afternoon and after Prime Minister Rainer Hazeloff (CDU) returns from a meeting with the Dutch royal couple King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima in Berlin. By the end of the week, CDU boss Sven Schulz wants to announce with which parties the Conservative coalition is seeking talks. If Christian Democrats, Social Democrats and Liberals come to an agreement on Tuesday, all three parties must first consult with different party organizations. The Social Democrats will also need the mandate of the party convention for coalition talks. That could happen next weekend.
In addition to the SPD and FDP, the CDU also sounded with the Greens. However, after their last conversation the previous week, the parties initially did not agree to a further meeting. The Greens had declared that they would only be available to an alliance that mathematically required. It will only be in the black-yellow-green alliance.
