a make or break moment for the america with the social democrats now opens a coalition talks the german chancellor rejects the idea of pressure elections and says she wants a new government as soon as possible also calling up islam as hardliners turn up the heat on pakistan's government with calls for a general strike after six people are killed in violent clashes. and a powerful blast in one of china's biggest ports kills at least two people and injured dozens more now police are trying to figure out what they will. i'm on i was on a welcome to the program germany's post election deadlock may be nearing an end with signs another grand coalition could be in the works chancellor i'm going to merkel is currently meeting with leaders of her c.d.u. party in berlin to. goes their options after coalition talks with the greens and
the pro-business f.t.p. collapsed she says a new decision must be made quickly and is expected to call on the second largest party the social democrats to form a new grand coalition of the s.p.d. had repeatedly ruled opens on there but merkel says the alternative of new elections would be worse. going back though it isn't telling them that they have to vote again i don't agree with that absolutely. we work well together so now we need to talk about the things that didn't work and try to do them even better. well that was a strong statement there from mark joined by g.w. correspondent hans brand to weigh opar options as it were. the c.d.u. is aiming for a grand coalition would that be a good option for germany you know some might say it's another four years without part of entry opposition how is that a healthy thing for the country or you can say that it's
a healthy thing in the sense that it's a sign of stability which is very important for germany and i think probably even more important for germany's neighbors and for the world at large where are people waiting at the moment for something to be decided in germany this kind of limbo this fluidity in the german situation is not really welcomed by german his neighbors and by its politics in the world within germany obviously it also means stability but of course the problem that we have at the moment is a different parliament with the alternative for germany the right wing populist being the second largest well they would be the largest opposition party if the social democrats were to join the government that would change the character of parliament quite significantly that's one of the reasons why the social democrats have said they're not so eager to go into another grand coalition it's going to be a very different event with a grand coalition is going to be very different set up and ending germany's political deadlock is definitely what all parties want to live in favor of
a grand coalition as we know are there any significant voices from within the c.d.u. against the us not really strong voices there are many voices within the c.d.u. at the moment who are saying if coalition discussions coalitions negotiations should start with the social democrats then the christian democrats accounts. should not make too many concessions in other words they're concerned that in this situation of pressure on the situation of need you might say for germany that the conservatives might give up too much of their political issues of their political aims in order to bring such a coalition into existence so that's really where the risk of resistance within the party is but in essence i think everyone in the party is hoping that such a general such a grand coalition will come to come to be again what can america offer the social democrats what can she offer them to convince them to go back into
a grand coalition well the social democrats obviously have various demands some of these are already being made at the moment they are demands in the social sphere. democrats for instance want a change in the way german medical aid is organized they want further investment by the state in things such as schools they want a change in the way the pension system is organized all these kinds of issues which have been in the political sphere for a long time have been discussed between conservatives and social democrats for a long time the conservatives will have to make concessions on some of these points and the social democrats will be interested in selling that hard to their voters telling their voters that this is really social democratic content that is coming out of a grand coalition that's really their interests in order to defend of the fact that they are going into this after all definitely interesting times ahead thank you very much for joining us in studio. in pakistan estimates hardliners have called
for a general strike following news clashes with security forces similar violence yesterday left six people dead and almost two hundred injured demonstrators have been rallying on the outskirts of the capital islamabad and the resignation of a government minister day teams of the last month they've blocked the main routes into the city for almost three weeks now from tottered a pakistani police and parliamentary forces failed to burst the protesters to slice of violence crack out. when are you ready of the spoke to journalist assad hushing in as long as bad and we asked him what exactly the protesters are hoping to achieve. as far as they're concerned the first demand that they had was that they want the federal law minister the head ahmed to resign now this is based on allegations that he committed last me by introducing an amendment into an electoral law that removes a certain referent which may be deemed to be softening the state's position against emma the muslim now that was where they started from now it is unclear what they're
what they're demanding and what they want further than that because the government it seems that he will get in that condition on board and they're going to go shooting with them on this is the real crux of the matter out here is that this is a relatively small fringe group the generally has not had the ability to turn out numbers or especially elect already has not been very relevant at every party but they're led by a hardline clerical has for years campaigned on this issue and also me and gained notoriety in fact to which you know their remarks and graphic inciting violence against particularly the end of the community but others as well and it seems that the move and receive the player in question is using these go at it and using the issue of law something which is a compass a hot button issue but it's on in the last few years he's using it to gain political prominence and then as far as he's concerned obviously it's worked out very well he's managed to got the capital for two weeks and now even a police operation unable to dislodge him. that's the the other stories making news
