Cdu Spd Coalition Agreement
2030 Renewable Energy Target “not difficult” – 2030 Renewable energy Target “not difficult” – The coalition agreement of the German coalition parties CDU/CSU and SPD is a step towards a “realistic” energy transition policy, says Joachim Pfeiffer, CDU energy policy spokesman. He argues that an exit from coal under the coalition agreement is not necessary for Germany, as the country is on track to meet the commitments made in the Paris agreement. This will be partly explained by an ambitious development of renewable energies which, according to Mr Pfeiffer, will be achieved “without difficulty”. Schulz has confirmed that he will step down as SPD leader in March and will become foreign minister if the coalition agreement is approved by SPD members. All SPD members have received their election documents until 20 February 2018. All registered members were eligible to vote on February 6, 2018 at 18.m., for a total of 463,723.  The question was: “Should the German Social Democratic Party (SPD) conclude the February 2018 coalition agreement with the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and the Christian Social Union (CSU)?” “Should the SPD enter into the coalition agreement reached with the CDU and CSU in February 2018?”  If they had chosen only one major title for this agreement. Something like “Because we trust the power of Germany.” It was the front page of the new beginning with Gerhard Schroeder, after 16 long years under a Helmut Kohl government. Commenting on a possible coalition with Angela Merkel`s CDU and the Greens, Lindner said: “We will not be pushed into such a government. We see it with a lot of outstanding questions. A Jamaican coalition will be difficult. We have priorities such as education and faster digitization. We need a reasonable energy policy and an immigration policy.
There are commonalities, but also distances between us and the cdu and the Greens. Defence and development: the coalition agreement is vague on this point and commits to spend an additional 2 billion euros ($2.46 billion) on “international responsibility” and medium-term plans for investments of about 9 billion euros more, but the issue remains controversial between the parties. Any investment in development will be linked to increased defence spending.
