Angela Merkel: New election better than minority government

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said she would prefer new elections to leading a minority government, after a breakdown in coalition talks plunged the country into political crisis.

The key sticking points of the negotiations were the issues of migration and climate change.

She added: "We should talk about how we form a process that leads our country into a new, stable government".

Germany's Greens party is ready to continue negotiations on forming a new German government, the party's parliamentary group co-chair and one of the party's leaders, Anton Hofreiter, said on Monday.

Based on Apple's actions, Qiang said, it seems like they don't care about the labor standards they set previously. Six of them told The Financial Times that they routinely worked 11-hour days, which is illegal under Chinese law.

Mrs Merkel was weakened after the September election as voters angry with her decision in 2015 to open Germany's borders to more than a million asylum seekers punished her party by voting for the Alternative for Germany (AfD) far-right party.

The Social Democrats were Merkel's junior partners in government for the past four years. Germany's president has appealed to party leaders to reconsider after the Free Democrats walked out late last night, saying there was "no basis of trust".

'I don't want to say never today, but I am very sceptical and I think that new elections would then be the better way'.

Panicking political leaders are now appealing to political parties to decide whether they can form a stable government, fearing their future as a European Union giant is under threat.

She said she would stay on as acting Chancellor and would consult with President Frank-Walter Steinmeier on how to move forward, adding that a deal had been within reach.

Either way, the setback has raised concerns about the political stability of Europe's largest economy.

Mrs Merkel said her conservatives had left "nothing untried to find a solution".

Mr Altmaier said: "We stand by our responsibility to ensure this country has a stable and reliable government".
