    Schleswig-Holstein is expected to get a new governing coalition after all. In an exploratory talk on Thursday in Kiel, the leaders of the CDU, Greens and FDP were unable to agree on negotiations on continuing the incumbent Jamaica alliance.

    He very much regrets this, said Prime Minister Daniel Günther (CDU) after several hours of consultations in a Kiel hotel. He wanted a different result. The CDU state executive will now discuss the situation on Monday and make an offer for exploratory talks to one of the two previous coalition partners.

    The Greens want a two-party alliance with the CDU

    The Greens in Schleswig-Holstein have ended the exploratory talks with the CDU and FDP about a possible renewal of the Jamaica coalition. There is “no common basis” for a three-party coalition in which one of the partners is not needed, said co-lead candidate and Deputy Prime Minister Monika Heinold on Thursday evening. The Greens are now relying on a two-party alliance with the CDU.

    Co-lead candidate Aminata Touré announced that the CDU and its Prime Minister Daniel Gunther now have to clarify for themselves the direction in which they want to push government formation. “Now it’s up to Daniel Gunther to decide in which alliance he would like to form a government.” The Greens had “decided”. They see “a basis” for a two-party coalition with the CDU.

    With 43.4 percent, the CDU missed the absolute majority in the state parliament of Kiel by just one seat in the state elections on May 8th. She would therefore only have a secure majority in parliament with the Greens or the FDP – nevertheless Günther had campaigned for a continuation of the tripartite alliance that has governed the north together since 2017.

    Günther, as CDU state chairman, had invited the Greens and FDP to the meeting on Thursday. On Tuesday, a four-man team from the CDU led by Günther spoke separately with the leaders of both parties – for five hours with the Greens and two hours with the FDP. The leaders of the Greens and FDP had already stated their clear preferences for a two-party coalition with the CDU, but had also declared themselves ready for talks beyond that.

    Günther justified his course for a tripartite alliance with the high reputation of the coalition among the population. In the state elections, the CDU and the Greens had improved significantly with 18.3 percent, while the FDP only managed 6.4 percent after heavy losses. (dpa, AFP)
