The "small" Congress of Greens today paved the way for the start of formal negotiations for the formation of a coalition government with the Social Democratic Party (SPD) and the Free Democrats (FDP), approving by a large majority the text of the principles reached by the exploratory conversations.

The Director of the Greens, Michael Kellner, asked the 99 delegates to give their consent to the leadership, stressing that the exploratory are by no means negotiations to form a government and, therefore, not all the details of a program agreement have been discussed yet. "Let us now properly connect the traffic lights so that it can stay on for the next four years," he said, referring to the three-party coalition, also known as the SPD, Green and Green coalition. FDP. In the end, out of the 70 valid votes, only two were negative and there was one abstention.

"It simply came to our notice then. We have reached an era of hope, "said Greens co-chair Robert Habek, adding that" we are entering a new phase in green history, in which we will have the opportunity to shape reality. " "The exploratory text" describes a clear reform agenda, which is clear progress in important areas, "he said.

"A truly progressive government must not only document climate neutrality in an exploratory contacts document, but also support it by all means," he added.

The competent bodies of the FDP are expected to give their consent for the start of formal negotiations tomorrow, while in the SPD the decision is taken only by the party presidency. Meanwhile, the debate on the division of ministries between the three parties seems to have opened. FDP Vice President Wolfgang Kubicki said today that if the "traffic light" eventually became a government, its leader, Christian Lindner, would be ideal for the finance ministry. "Anyone who doubts that all this will succeed, the financing of the program without tax increases and without new debts, must want Christian Lindner to become Minister of Finance, in order to accept that it is possible. "Otherwise, the FDP will be exposed," Koumpiki told NDR.
