Mainz - The FDP had rejected tax increases.

Dreyer was a member of the Social Democrats' exploratory team.

On Friday, the negotiators from the SPD, Greens and FDP presented their exploratory results together and recommended coalition negotiations.

The exploratory paper says: “We will not introduce any new taxes on assets and we will not increase taxes such as income tax, company tax or value added tax.” The SPD executive committee voted unanimously for negotiations on Friday.

For the Greens, a small party congress should decide on Sunday, the FDP leadership then on Monday.
