German Social Democrats rejects coalition with Merkel
German Social Democrats’ leader, Martin Schulz, said his party stands by its refusal to join a new government under conservative Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Schulz said that the Social Democrats are "not available" for a repeat of the outgoing coalition. He said that, after the election, "it was clear that the 'grand coalition' had got the red card," the AP reported.
Schulz said that his party isn't afraid of a new election. Merkel's attempt to form a government with other partners collapsed Sunday night.
