party headquarters the negotiators are coming off a long night with no concrete results much is at stake failure to reach an agreement could mean new elections but chancellor merkel says she's determined not to let that happen villain despite all the difficulties in these negotiations i am determined to form a government as mandated by germany's vote as they definitely won't be easy it'll definitely be hard but it's worth going into a second round of talks one that by and of my so that is this is on the ground that we all realize we have to make compromises everyone. so far that hasn't happened enough. this is especially applies to those who declare to the outside world that they're making all sorts of concessions but from what i see room we sit down together they're not. so much as remarks clearly aimed at germany's green party as a hoffa c.s.u. in the greens are at loggerheads on many key issues including migration and energy

policy. but what we can't allow is that someone says i want discussed that you know everyone has to negotiate otherwise the talks don't make any sense. the fourth player in the negotiations germany's liberal f.t.p. are also set on a positive outcome use a consulate's a new coalition at a federal level in germany could mean a new beginning in terms of policy. and we hope very much as free democrats that the other parties are bold enough to try it and. the four parties had hoped to have already finished with negotiations but with one self-imposed deadline now missed many expect there to be moved long nights ahead. let's get the latest on from t w political correspondent to charlotte potts who joins us from chancellor merkel's c.d.u. party headquarters in berlin welcome charlotte what are the big stumbling blocks.
6:04 pm
well there are many still left the big issues are migration climate and finances especially a migration last night basically the parties gave up negotiating on that family reunions for asylum seekers that is the big issue that the parties can't agree on and we've just heard that migration is not even a topic in today's negotiations it'll have to wait until two appear tomorrow today for a policy has already been discussed and there was a lot of movement towards each other we've been just hearing but for example the issue of arms. control and exports is still up for debate in the still a contentious issue and we have to remember these parties from the greens the business friendly f.t.p. and the conservatives they are odd bedfellows to begin with so it's been four really tough weeks of negotiations and we are not seeing the end of it yet a speck of a point about the being that follows because i know that these sorts of coalition
6:05 pm
talks here in germany can last months so one wonders really deadlocked or is it is just is this just part of the game. it seems like there's been really deadlocked last night i mean this is why they extended it throughout this weekend we're hearing that in new self said deadline is sunday night they're thinking if they can't find an agreement until sunday night then maybe they have to call it quits after so many weeks of negotiations but i mean there's still a lot lot of open issues to discuss and the parties were hoping yesterday to come to a conclusion one of the party members of the f.t.p. he said this morning that marriages at this point hang in the balance because the politicians can come home for the weekend and of course he made a joke but it's a bit serious because everybody was hoping for a conclusion and agreement at this point it does look like though all parties are
6:06 pm
willing still to compromise that there is the willingness to keep negotiating throughout the weekend and to come to some kind of conclusion then on sunday night so as sunday night comes and there is no deal well then. well there are a couple of options there could be a minority government formed which is very unlikely because it tends to be unstable and especially with germany's nazi past that is not a good idea and the other option is to call new elections which is also not an ideal situation for the parties and they know that the pressure is high to find a solution because new elections would really hurt all these established parties involved from the greens the conservatives and the f.t.p. because it would shed a bad light on them obviously and not coming to a good conclusion after four weeks of negotiations so they are hoping that it won't come to new elections especially because that could then actually supports
