Germany's Social Democratic Party (SPD) leader on Friday denied media reports that claimed his party was ready to enter coalition talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel's Conservatives.
The chairman said the SPD's executive committee would discuss various options on Monday, and make a proposal which would be discussed at SPD's party conference from December 7 to 9 in Berlin.
The SPD executive will debate all options, a minority government or a grand coalition again with the Union.
Contradicting a report by Bild newspaper, Schulz said the party leaders had not agreed to start talks on a new "grand coalition". He had called the chancellor to complain about "inacceptable" leaks to the press, the Social Democrat leader said. Schulz fronts a party which is split evenly down the middle on what he should do next.
With hopes of forming a majority government with former Free Democratic and Social Democratic parties still unclear and the opposition AfD now being the third biggest party in parliament, Angela Merkel may have to settle for a minority government or face snap elections. "As before, I remain sceptical that you can do that by carrying on "business as usual" in a grand coalition".
Merkel told the party conference that she wants to "come quickly to a government", adding that Germany must have a stable government, "but also a government that really advances the country".
