10:05 pm
neighbors and by its partners in the world within germany obviously it also means ability but of course the problem that we have at the moment is a different problem and 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
