Germany: SPD gives green light for coalition talks with Merkel

The German Social Democrat party has opened the door to coalition talks with Chancellor Merkel’s Christian Democrats.

The move comes after the party said they would win important concessions over non-negotiable demands including the minimum wage, equal pay and infrastructure investment from the centre-right block.

The party has already joined up with Merkel as part of the Grand Coalition in 2005, however, the experience apparently left them wary.
