a lot of selling to do he's asking the party's executive to back formal coalition talks with merkel's conservatives at a special conference later this month he'll then have to convince the party's rank and file to give their approval to the final agreement the party's youth group plans to lobby hard against another grand coalition. so chancellor merkel's bid deforming new government already the longest coalition building process in post-war germany is likely to drag on for weeks if not months nevertheless many of christian democrats are upbeat. view the results are good for our country the chancellor negotiated very well but the social democrats also achieved a good deal if we come together it will be good for the country and this is a good source would assume that. germany's european partners including neighbors
9:03 am
friends and austria have also been expressing relief that a coalition appears to be in the works. but in germany itself reaction is mixed the largest opposition party the far right after he has criticised the coalition plans . to simply deny fear will get a bad government the last four years have shown that things have been going downhill in a number of areas. and since this coalition of losers wants to stay in power i fear more of the same instance of why i think. many voters simply want the politicians in berlin to get on with the business of governing. i think it would be good to have a grand coalition the one we had in the last few years wasn't bad and it's better than your next no that's too expensive germany still needs to be stable or it's near if they manage to solve their interior conflicts and find out ways to work together be a good thing for everyone especially in current situation year. but whether or not
9:04 am
germany is led by another grand coalition won't be certain until social democrat members of the final deal a thumbs up. that indeed is the key question to discuss it with me now our political correspondent sumon young in the studio the s.p.d. is rank and file likely to be the biggest hurdle in this process towards a new government is there a possibility that the two sides the conservatives and americans conservatives. social democrats actually agree on a coalition agreement and then the species vote has. members rather voted down well yes there is and you know it's all on a knife edge or at least there's still a lot of uncertainty around this process you know there is frustration and disappointment among the rank and file s.p.d. party members and as has been mentioned there are ten days to go now until a special party convention that's going to have delegates from the around the
9:05 am
country sort of green lighting according to most of this deal has been done sort of fall but a lot of people are not convinced the left wing of the party has already mobilized its opposition they say it's not enough in this deal there's no basis for a you know a real set of social democrat policies that's what one of their leaders has been saying another prominent opponents a very new addition of the grand coalition government of conservatives and social democrats the youth section. says he's going to travel around the country stirring up opposition against what's been agreed so far even as martin schulze the party leader tries to drum up support on his side so there's a there's an awful lot of opposition and it is far from clear whether this deal will ultimately be realized let's hear now from one of those social democrat members my colleague phil gale has been talking to s.p.d.
9:06 am
member karen taylor is what she had to say to that preliminary deal struck between party and merkel conservatives yesterday. looking at the paper that came out today i'm very disappointed. if we see the results if we see what it's pretty focused on before these talks and what at every right now i think the s.p.d. had to step back on the very core issue with definitely definitely a parting question to have a government that i must say ok. as a pretty member. talking to us just say talking to fill. a studio so that was an example of that skepticism among the s.p.d. rank and file. can we take a look at this twenty eight page document which sets out the cornerstones of a potential coalition agreement that's the document that the social democrats and
9:07 am
the conservatives agreed on yesterday is there were nuff in that preliminary agreement. you know to take it to the s.p.d. rank and file and convince them that yes it is worth joining a government with. well of course the party leader martin still says there is he says that eighty percent of what's in the bases what the s.p.d. wants and has set out in its election program so you know it sounds good if you put it like that there are clearly social democrat policies in there more money for people with families more money for the long term unemployed a slight rebalancing of germany's health care system i won't bore you with the details of that but at least they say it's going to be a bit fairer in future something to stabilize pensions various things that the s.p.d. certainly wants but of course the opponents on their side is saying it doesn't go far enough the tax system they say will still be unfair they say that health care
9:08 am
will still be unfair in germany the rich won't pay as much as people who really in many cases are absolutely relying on the public system and they also say the. about limiting immigration which is in this preliminary agreement you know really is just about playing pandering to the far right so they're very worried about it and as i said you know there will be a lot of argument before they say agreement is done if it's done at all and medical is not yet in the position of breathing a sigh of relief ok a small step forward everything still on a knife edge some young many thanks for that. turning to other news now the african union is demanding an apology from u.s. president donald trump over his alleged use of an expletive to describe countries on the continent. now trump has been fiercely criticized over these alleged comments with many
