Germany’s Free Democrats endorses coalition deal

Berlin, Dec 5 (EFE).- The German liberal party on Sunday approved a coalition agreement with the Social Democrats and the Greens which could lead to the inauguration of a new government next week.

The Free Democrats (FDP) became the second of the future ruling partners to back the deal, following the Social Democratic party.

The pact “describes a new policy in our country, a policy of innovation, willing to dare to make more progress,” the FDP leader Christan Lindner, who is set to be the next finance minister said during the congress.

“I am convinced that this country will benefit from this coalition; a new revival is possible for Germany,” he added.

In the new coalition, the FDP will take over the portfolios of Transport and Digitization and of Justice and Education, as well as the finance ministry.

The Greens Party is expected to present the results of the vote on the agreement on Monday, which would allow the signing of the coalition contract to take place on Tuesday if endorsed. EFE
