Berlin, February 8: Recently Germany saw a new wave for forming a new coalition government, this was hailed by the leaders of both parties. But the flow doesn’t stop over here as the leaders in Brussels have also praised this decision saying that it is beneficiary for Europe as well.
Former European Parliament president, current head of Germany's Social Democrats (SPD) and the probable next German Foreign Minister Martin Schulz celebrated his party's coalition deal with Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives on Wednesday, saying it meant Germany "will return to an active and leading role in the European Union."
EU Economics Commissioner Pierre Moscovici welcomed the coalition announcement via Twitter: "Coalition agreement in Germany: good news also for Europe!"
Germany faced a division of ministries among both parties Merkel’s Christian Democrats (CDU) will get the economy and defence ministries while their Bavarian allies, the Christian Social Union (CSU), will provide the interior minister in the form of Horst Seehofer, who talks tough on migration, media reported. The news agency DPA said the conservative acting finance minister, Peter Altmaier, would become economy minister.
The agreement should allow German to resume its leading role in international affairs and, at least for now, put an end to questions about how long Merkel will stay in her job.
