When I look at the heating law, basic child welfare and now this cannabis law, it is clear that there is a lack of good craftsmanship. “That’s how I express myself politely.”

“If three coalition partners are constantly at loggerheads and in the middle a more moderating chancellor makes several attempts to hold the coalition together, but then some of those involved believe that they still have to afford breakaways, then that obviously doesn’t build trust,” Steinbrück continued .

He significantly criticized FDP General Secretary Bijan Djir-Sarai's concerns a couple of coalition between the FDP and the Union. “The most recent lapse was made by the FDP general secretary, who is misleadingly rambling about a black-yellow coalition for which there is not remotely a realistic power option,” mentioned Steinbrück. “If you stick to the five percent hurdle yourself, it has a satirical character.”
