germany social democrats that in turn could spell the end for the grand coalition with the christian democrats and christian social union the results of the s.p.d. poll came as a surprise as did the clear margin of victory the new leaders to be want to chart a new course for the party and reopen negotiations with chancellor angela merkel on future government policies. has the responsibility of the social democrats to make policies for the low and medium earners at this time and again we see closes in our contract with the c.d.u. that are not in their best interests and that has to change. but the conservatives are likely to resist any major changes to government policy only 2 years before the next election c.d.u. leader on it could come common power made this clear. we stand by this coalition on the basis of what we've already negotiated. 100 m.

we want to get back down to work quickly but. the opposition greens say berlin is headed towards a government crisis the s.p.d. the s.p.d. has to clear this up this week do they want to govern this country yes or no you can't govern if your answer is maybe you can the s.p.d. has veered left what this means for german government should become clear over the coming days. crane can guide us through this welcome. is this a crisis. it is certainly a shock a shock even to members of the s.p.d. as was evident when the result was announced. if it's a crisis it's probably a slow moving one the government isn't going to fall in the next couple of days for the very simple reason that delegates at the social democrat party conference that begins on friday must sign off on this new leadership team and
7:10 pm
given the surprises that the s.p.d. brings who knows but i think it's pretty safe to say they will sign off with them and then the next step would be how does this team move forward as we heard in the report they do say they think that the coalition agreement with chancellor angela merkel's conservatives needs to be renegotiated we're hearing from leaders of the conservative party the c.d.u. that they are not about to go along with that demand so there will obviously be some phase of discussion between the 2 parties and in fact the government spokesman said today absolutely they're willing to engage in discussion so that will also take some time but sure to the new leadership stick to their guns and the s.p.d. decide that they cannot remain in the government on the basis of the current coalition agreement then in fact the 2 options would be the ones you mentioned
7:11 pm
either early elections or a minority government of the christian democrats and the and they have been very partners the c.s.u. for some period of time but clearly a minority government is not a terribly stable government many people would view that as a very problematic solution and the timing is particularly unfortunate for the you seeing its biggest economy in such political flux as bret's it approaches as well as a host of other political challenges. indeed it is problematic for the e.u. just one example of that germany's finance minister was also one of the rival candidates for the party leadership the party decided to to or a slight majority of the party members decided to go for this largely unknown team rather than the country's finance minister in other words to some degree he is now discredited and he's about to enter into very very important meetings with other e.u. finance ministers germany's role as
7:12 pm
a leader within europe certainly looks to be in question where it's clearly going to be very much involved in self reflection self examination about where it goes and it's also problematic from a domestic german point of view we have the far right alternative for germany party the a.f.d.c. breathing down the necks of america's conservatives saying they very much want to be in government themselves all of that makes a face of political uncertainty like the one that germany apparently is about to enter once again very challenging indeed chief political correspondent melinda trite thank you. football brightman managed to end a game losing streak of vosburgh on sunday with a game at warm then on to a big court put braman ahead as diving had been its before half time to work at level the score made right through the 2nd half receiving defend william striker
