The CDU’s Friedrich Merz tells us a red/green coalition would govern from the far left. Olaf Scholz has guided the SPD to within touching distance of knocking Angela Merkel’s conservatives from power for the first time since 2005. But with no party commanding a clear lead, coalition building looks more complicated than ever.
