of talks but still no deal here is how it played out the mood at the talks more fear than hope in the words of one of the participants the has been progress but that's being coupled with setbacks. but in team. dealing with climate policy the have to say that where we did have an agreement where we managed to agree to push on with the change in energy policy and make a real contribution to climate protection and achieving our climate goals that has been partly rolled back. that's one of the highrise if you to all. of the four parties at the table chances are going to merkel's christian democrats seem the most optimistic that claiming success in economic issues. but. we still need to look at cutting back on red tape but the fact that we found the strength to concentrate on such an important issue the economy and to reach agreement is a real step in the right direction if you. will for

a credit of the greens the state premier part of it and berg met with the leader of the very conservatives horse a whole for but they have not been able to agree on the crux issue of whether or not some refugees will be able to bring their families to germany you know. i would always be able to form a coalition with mr. but i'm dealing with other people here. and early in the talks on saturday it was clear the patience of some of the negotiators is wearing thin. at some point enough is enough we've been circling around each other for weeks pushing issues and using tactics to try and squeeze a little more out it has to end at some stage we have to make a decision sometime in that time is this weekend at the latest six p.m. on sunday. but even that's not clear the very conservative leader is questioning the deadline. it seems many are questioning the deadline in germany this hour i'm

now joined by d.w. correspondent jefferson chase jefferson senior party figures are due to arrive for negotiations in the next several hours but it's been almost two months since the election an angle americal still hasn't managed to form a government could spell the end for her actually well i think i can i can spend some calm here i don't think this is the end of. obviously something has to come out of these talks he has to be able to form a government however this is not like the u.s. or the u.k. it's not first past the post it's not one party wins the entire thing and then forms the new government this is a parliamentary system there's always a coalition which means there's always lots and lots and lots of talks. just to give you an idea of where we are in this process the last government which was a lot easier to form because there were only three parties at the table took eighty four days so we're not actually that far behind ok we're not far behind but these
8:05 am
parties that are involved right now sit on a broad political spectrum across the board right we have the conservatives merkel's conservatives we have the f.d.p. which is center right and then we have the greens can these parties with such differing points of view and agendas actually form some kind of consensus and reach an agreement where you say you're right there i mean this is this is the broadest political spectrum that you've ever had in post-war germany it goes all the way from the c.s.u. the most conservative of the mainstream parties that's the varian conservatives all the way to the greens so it is more difficult but i think you will see them reach an agreement for the simple reason they don't really have much choice no one wants to call fresh elections the only party that's going to benefit from that is the f.t. the far right populist none of the mainstream parties want it so i think they'll get a deal done. ok so they'll have to get a deal done but there are major sticking points major sticking point right i mean the most major of the major sticking points is the issue of refugees the
8:06 am
conservatives want to cap the numbers that can enter the country in any one year at two hundred thousand the greens don't like that the conservatives also don't want to let's all family members for all refugees have the right to come to the country that's a red line in the sand for the greens the greens say we have to allow that so that's going to be the issue today that i think they're going to work the hardest on trying to find some sort of compromise for and they expect at six pm they'll come and say either we've got a deal or we've agreed to keep talking ok so either a deal or keep talking the same situation we are and probably yesterday will watch and see exactly and chase thank you for walking us through that. to zimbabwe now they want him to go but he is refusing the military leadership in the country will meet today with president robert mugabe to discuss his resignation after decades in power that's after tens of thousands rallied in the capital harare to
