For the first time since the election that gave neither side a clear majority, Schroeder appeared to shift away from his demand that a grand coalition of the two main parties was only possible under his leadership by saying he wanted the two rivals to join forces for the good of Germany, political analysts said. “I’m in favour of the two main parties coming together because that is my interpretation of what the voters want,” Schroeder told German television, indicating flexibility. But he added his party, which in theory has other coalition options, was not ready to back down in negotiations with the CDU. Schroeder’s comments which appeared to go in both directions offer little hope for an imminent deal but political analysts said he was sending a signal to Germans he could be ready to compromise after last week’s outcome.
