Germany: FDP and AfD opposition leaders slam coalition agreement

March 13, 2018

Leaders of the Free Democratic Party (FDP) and Alternative for Germany (AfD) spoke of the recent coalition agreement between Germany's two major parties, speaking at a press conference in Berlin on Monday.

 

Chair of FDP Bundestag Faction Christian Lindner criticised the coalition agreement for not taking care of Germany's middle class. He said his party should "look at the middle, who aren't needy - quite the contrary - they are who are carrying the country on their shoulders and they only expect that their lives may be made a little easier."

 

Lindner went on to claim that his party would offer "the centre ground" within the Bundestag. Meanwhile, the anti-immigration AfD party positioned themselves as the opposition party within the Bundestag. Chair of AfD Alexander Gauland said, "One must first see that the government should govern, and it is the government that should bring forward legislative proposals. We have to be the opposition. We have to be against this."

 

Following the coalition agreement, which saw the Social Democrats (SPD) going into a grand coalition with Chancellor Angela Merkel's CDU/CSU alliance, the AfD are now the largest opposition party in the German parliament.
