A glimmer of hope for Merkel?

Bavaria does not want to risk the stability of the German government, state premier Markus Soeder said on Monday (July 2), adding he hoped for a compromise with Chancellor Angela Merkel in a migrant policy row among her conservatives that threatens her coalition.

“There are many possible compromises, including some that we have offered, to reach a solution and this is very important. And we hope this is still possible. One thing is clear: the stability of the government is not a question for us,” Soeder, said at an event in Passau.

“We have always been willing to make compromises. There are many possible compromises, including some that we have offered, to reach a solution and this is very important. And we hope this is still possible. One thing is clear: the stability of the government is not a question for us. Ending the parliamentary group alliance is also not a solution for us. You can achieve a lot in a government. Outside of it, that’s not possible which is why today’s talk (between Merkel and Seehofer) is definitely the right thing.” concluded Soeder
