7:01 pm
anything but certain polls show a surge in support for silvio berlusconi's center right bloc as well as the n.t.'s dalgleish meant the five star movement migration and the economy are among the key campaign issues. and welcome to the program the wait for a german government is over and that's because the social democrats have voted yes to joining forces yet again were chancellor angela merkel's conservatives two thirds of s.p.d. members voted in favor of the coalition deal hammered out by their party leaders and their goals christian democrats this gives the chancellor another term in office and a new government is expected to be in place within two weeks. a nightmare for s.p.d. party leaders didn't come to pass as the results were announced there was no applause and no cheering instead a reserved reaction from a cautious party leader who fought very hard for this yes is
7:02 pm
a. sixty's interest social democratic party did not take this decision lightly in the past few weeks they discussed the results of the coalition agreement openly and transparently these were important and exciting debates in which many members of the s.p.d. actively participated or at least. the results of the members vote is not exactly cause for showing off s.p.d. leaders know that many in the party have struggled with this decision fearing that the s.p.d. will be completely sidelined in another grand coalition as p.d.u. swing boss kevin crooners back in the spotlight he became the figurehead of the resistance against a grand coalition and despite his disappointment says the start of the democratic vote and of course we accept this result we are not sore losers and will try to make the best of it. out of the germans feel many are just happy to see a government take shape. if they can push through everything they're planning
7:03 pm
gladly otherwise we will lections what could without a dentist now have on its part if it was good for the s.p.d. in the long run i don't know it's been months now. good for the s.p.d. or not no one knows for now but in any case it will benefit the coalition partner the christian democrats. this is not s.p. the result is a good basis in addition ninety seven percent support from the city you similar support from the c.s.u. a good coalition agreement and a good team that's good governance. the german president also satisfied germany will soon have a new government. it is simply good for our country that this phase of a. uncertainty and insecurity is over and that the three parties are prepared to take on the responsibility of governing. nieman only the opposition has found a fly in the ointment amid a feeling of general relief. fact is the fact is that now the
7:04 pm
losers find themselves together the statement is clearly carry on as usual. as america prepares to be sworn in for a fourth term as chancellor scrutiny will no doubt return to a new edition of the grand coalition. political correspondent nina and you know this vote and the political stalemate that has gone on for nearly six months how are people in germany reacting to this result because we certainly didn't see that much excitement at the social democrat party headquarters this morning that we are now is by no means a marriage of love between these big parties the traditionally the old parties in germany some people call it a marriage of convenience other people even speak of a forced marriage and many german voters feel like they're getting the same result whatever they vote every time you have to remember that eight out of the twelve
7:05 pm
past years the german voters have been governed by such a grand coalition and so this has also led to a big degree of frustration that was visible because both big parties uncle americans conservatives and the s.p.d. gemini's oldest party lost significantly in september's elections you mentioned angle merkel's party also losing out significantly one of the main challenges facing her now in the new government. well the new grand coalition only has a narrow majority in the german parliament right behind me which is going to make things a bit more difficult then again the parties have agreed on a big sum of money that they're going to be spreading and they're going to be investing in policies together those were hammered out in the coalition deal that was presented a few weeks ago some forty six billion euros will be added and they're going to aim at different voter groups to sort of bring them back to the table and win their
7:06 pm
support back because of course the big fear is that they'll lose voters over time and we've seen that fractionalization of the german political landscape already so this will be one big challenge at home and of course america is also entering a big this is the beginning of the transition period where america is going to prepare the ground for her successor to take over and this is of course interesting for an international audience to remember that for years germany has meant stability has meant america but these times are drawing to an end as well and we can't forget about the fact that a vast petey's joining the new government as they have said now that they well that leaves the f.t. the far right party as the main opposition in parliament how will that impact join politics. we can see the impact already the political debate in germany has changed already and also the debate here going on in the parliament
7:07 pm
behind me. is dominating the tone in many debates. just to be specific as the biggest opposition party the a.f.p. will be able to preside over the budget committee which is one important committee in the parliament they will also get well speech time so these are important symbols but of course the big question is can the grand coalition the next edition of america's led coalition can they actually tackle the issues that the voters once tackled question off the future of digital infrastructure of the future of the labor market only if they manage to really office aleutians to voters will they be able to contain this so in right wing populism that we're seeing since september as elections. political correspondent you know has a thank you very much we're going out to brussels to look at the european picture with political correspondent barbara vai's all barbara there you are relief is the
7:08 pm
word of the day here is that the outlook from the e.u. powerbrokers. oakum pleat lee whew for relief you can say anything else congress relations from all sides particularly of course from paris where the french president. says now the decision of the social democrats was good news for europe with the belgian prime minister shouts michel he said that now is the time where germany has to show germany has to show some leadership in europe again and let's go forward together the french nur and the dutch commissioner and everybody who sort of is send their good wishes will come this result because what the last thing that european union wanted was an evil german government is so much hinges on bullen and paris working together well and working in as solid an unchallenged men are far from like internal strife and internal wars and so there
