it is reported that about 600 representatives of the Social Democratic Party voted for the joint cabinet formation agreement at the Party Congress held in Berlin on the 4th, with up to 98.8% voting in favour and only seven against

the two coalition parties of the Social Democratic Party, the Green Party and the Liberal Democratic Party, must also pass a joint cabinet agreement before the German Bundestag is convened on the 8th

on November 24, after nearly two months of intense negotiations, the center left political party, the Social Democratic Party, which won the highest support in the German Bundestag election, finalized a cabinet formation agreement with the Green Party and the Liberal Democratic Party

according to the current electoral system and political party structure in Germany, it is difficult for any party to obtain the absolute majority of seats required for independent governance. Therefore, after the election results are announced, the political parties with the highest turnout will discuss the possibility of forming a ruling coalition. The political parties that decide to jointly govern will negotiate topics such as the selection of federal prime minister, cabinet personnel arrangement and policy trend, and finally issue a joint cabinet formation agreement

after the agreement is reached, the new Bundestag will put the prime minister election on the agenda. In terms of procedure, the Prime Minister shall be formally nominated by the president and voted by members of Parliament. As the ruling party has an absolute majority of seats, the candidate for prime minister can generally pass the vote

the new German Bundestag will vote for a new Chancellor on December 8
