Germany at mercy of former EU chief Schulz as Angela Merkel hails coalition as ‘new dawn’

The German Chancellor has struggled to form a coalition after winning the nation’s election last year.

But now early agreements between Mrs Merkel and Martin Schulz, leader of the German Social Democrats (SPD) and former President of the European Parliament, are set to cement their partnership.

While a formal deal cannot be negotiated until the SPD’s special conference on January 21, Mrs Merkel has agreed on a slew of concessions to maintain her position as she looks to enter an historic fourth term – putting her on par with arch-Europhile Helmut Kohl and the first German Chancellor Konrad Adenaur.
