The FDP assured on Saturday that the failure of the open negotiations to form a government with the SPD and the Greens was “not an option”.

“There are no viable alternatives” to the government “semaphore”, as the SPD-FDP-Green formula is popularly known, said FDP General Secretary Volker Wissing in a statement to the “Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung”.

Wissing has signaled that his party is adopting a “responsible and constructive” stance in the negotiations officially started last Thursday and has admitted that climate protection will be one of the central points on the agenda.

“The three parties know that enormous efforts will be required to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees,” he said after the mass demonstrations on Friday in several German cities to demand drastic measures to curb global warming. “We are ready and want to contribute to real climate protection”, emphasized Wissing.

The Greens have invested 50 million euros annually, but Wissing warns that the final figure has yet to be negotiated.

On the other hand, Hendrik Wüst was elected President of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia this Saturday, replacing Armin Laschet, the candidate for Chancellor in the last federal election, in the party who achieved the worst results in its history. Wuest was the only candidate and received 98.3 percent of the vote.
