Berlin election: SPD leader Giffey is aiming for a government with the Greens and the Left


In Berlin there are signs of a new edition of the red-red-green government alliance. Franziska Giffey sees the greatest overlap in this coalition - also in contrast to a possible traffic light.

The Berlin SPD has set the course for a continuation of the red-green-red government in the federal capital.

On Friday there will be final exploratory talks with the Greens and the left, said the SPD state chairwoman and designated governing mayor Franziska Giffey after a meeting of the state executive committee in Berlin.

The three parties have the greatest overlap for a promising cooperation.

An exploratory paper should also be drawn up at the meeting on Friday.

Subsequently, a proposal will be made to the state executive committee of the SPD to start coalition negotiations.

The "Berliner Morgenpost" and the dpa news agency had previously reported that the SPD and the Greens had jointly decided to start coalition negotiations with the left.

In the House of Representatives election on September 26th, the SPD and the Greens became the strongest and second strongest force and want to govern together again.

The Berlin SPD leader Giffey had considered bringing the FDP on board as a third partner instead of the left.

The Liberals now seem out of the running for the time being.
