in that coalition the christian democrats are attempting to shrug off any such suggestion for on a great card or it's business as usual. for the c.d.u. one thing is clear we're going to stand by this coalition on the basis of what we've already negotiated. and we want to get back down to work quickly. but the new s.p.d. leaders norbert. are critical of the political partnership they have new demands on the minimum wage pensions and the climate that they want to be met. and thus. this is not possible if this is blocked then the party conference will have to think about how to overcome these differences for policy is the most important thing and that is what will decide whether this coalition has a future there is in the s.p.d. want to prevent that party debate from happening. this was all about
9:03 pm
a person no change in the s.p.d. and it doesn't necessarily mean that the party is going to rethink its policies. the trade unions are urging the s.p.d. not to abandon the grand coalition. this country is in great need of modernization and. we need an ambitious program of investment that is something this government must tackle in the 2nd half of his tenure. next week the social democrats will decide which of their demands will be tied to the survival of the grand coalition. well for more let's bring in our political correspondent simon young simon this wasn't really expected how people in berlin and germany been reacting to this a lot of the media reaction has been pretty shocked and help raged you know one of the newspapers saying things like you know the s.p.d. is a bowler shooting itself in the breeze. skeptical boss he can get back to the kind

9:05 pm
pretty strident reaction across the piece here in germany to that shore the big question i suppose really is what's going to happen to i'm going to back off government that's right well these 2 new leaders of the s.p.d. have said they want to renegotiate the coalition agreement that is the basis of the coalition government featuring the social democrats and chancellor merkel's conservatives they want more left left wing policies in there the conservatives for their part have say to repeated it again today note shown of renegotiation so one of the new leaders now know but the boy said to die well if that's going to be the sort of blockade as he calls it from the conservatives you know that's not a good sign and so ready hits of collision between these tea parties i think it's inevitable that in the coming weeks possibly months the s.p.d. will decide that it wants to pull out. of its coalition arrangement with medical
