berlin - German Chancellor Angela Merkel prefers new elections rather than being in charge of a minority cabinet. She does not think about giving up.
When new elections come, she wants to introduce the CDU again, she said Monday for the public channel ARD. She said to another station, ZDF, that resignation did not occur to her. 'I think that Germany only needs stability. '
The formation talks opened after the Bundestag elections between the CDU, CSU, FDP and Greens ran on Sunday. Merkel is still open for a new 'big coalition' with the SPD, but the SPD itself does not want that. A minority government that would depend on votes from the right-wing Alternative für Deutschland, she concluded.
In this election battle Merkel can count on the support of the CSU, the Bavarian sister party of the CDU, said CSU chairman Horst Seehofer.
