The state executive of the Berlin Left wants to recommend the state party conference to start coalition negotiations with the SPD and the Greens. The decision to do so was made on Tuesday with only one dissenting vote, the Berlin Left announced on Tuesday evening. The decision will be made by the state party conference, which is scheduled for Friday. The party is ready to continue to use the parliamentary majority for a social and ecological urban policy for Berlin, said state chairwoman Katina Schubert.
"We have explored a mutually acceptable way to implement the referendum on socialization," said Schubert. "Strengthening social cohesion and continuing real crisis management is possible in a progressive alliance for Berlin." A socio-ecological policy will not fail on the Berlin left. "Should the SPD actually go into a coalition with the backward-looking CDU, the city is threatened with a social and societal rollback."
The left-wing top candidate in the repeat election and Berlin's Senator for Culture, Klaus Lederer, announced on Twitter on Tuesday evening that the left had got the impression during the soundings that they were working through the open tasks from the coalition agreement with red-green-red until 2026 and were dealing with progressive majorities to take care of the functioning of the city. The left is ready for this.
According to media reports, the governing mayor and SPD state chairwoman Franziska Giffey is aiming for a coalition with the CDU. Giffey wants to propose to the SPD state board at its meeting this Wednesday that coalition negotiations with the election winner CDU be started, reported the "Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung", "Bild / B.Z.", "Tagesspiegel" and other media on Tuesday evening. So far, a red-green-red coalition has ruled in Berlin, which, alongside CDU-led alliances, would also have a majority in the new House of Representatives.
