nightmare for s.p.d. party leaders didn't come to pass as the results were announced there was no applause and no cheering instead a reserved reaction from a cautious party leader who fought very hard for this yes is a fellow democrats apartheid sixty centrist social democratic party did not take this decision lightly in the past few weeks they discussed the results of the coalition agreement openly and transparently these were important and exciting debates in which many members of the s.p.d. actively participated or at least. the results of the members vote is not exactly cause for showing off s.p.d. leaders know that many in the party have struggled with this decision fearing that the s.p.d. will be completely sidelined in another grand coalition as p.d.u. swing boss kevin coonerty back in the spotlight he became the figurehead of the resistance against a grand coalition and despite his disappointment says the son of the democratic vote and of course we accept this result we are not sore losers and will try to
9:03 pm
make the best of it. can dispense to. out of the germans feel many are just happy to see a government take shape. and if they can push through everything they're planning gladly otherwise we will lections what good would that have done us now live on its past if it was good for the s.p.d. in the long run i don't know it's been months now. good for the s.p.d. or not no one knows for now but in any case it will benefit the coalition partner the christian democrats. this is new s.p. the result is a good basis in addition ninety seven percent support from the c.d.u. similar support from the c.s.u. a good coalition agreement and a good team that's good governance. the german president also satisfied germany will soon have a new government. this is it is simply good for our country that this phase of a. uncertainty and insecurity is over and that the three parties are prepared to
9:04 pm
take on the responsibility of governing. nieman only the opposition has found a fly in the ointment amid a feeling of general relief. fact is the fact is that now the losers find themselves together the statement is clearly carry on as usual. now on the american was due to be sworn in again as chancellor on march fourteenth and scrutiny returns to a new edition of the grand coalition. for more let's now go top political correspondent nina nina it's good to see you so i do america is getting a fourth term at the head of another grand coalition does it go back to business as usual or can we expect changes in this government well this is most certainly uncle america's last term in office this is for sure so one thing's already clear that
9:05 pm
the next period is going to be extremely interesting in terms of watching who is going to succeed uncle americal as the leading person within the c.d.u. already some people are getting quite vocal so this will be one interesting thing to watch for whether they dare criticize her and whether they follow party discipline in certain other areas the other big thing is of course that anglo-american and the social democrats have a much narrower majority within the parliament so of course the debate in the parliament right here behind me is going to get a lot livelier because of course the parties in the grand coalition the social democrats and the conservatives also have to square the circle of redefining their own identity so that's going to be interesting well another change of course is that the far right anti immigrant and the party now becomes the official opposition in german parliament how is that likely to impact politics here. it has
9:06 pm
already impacted on the political debate the tone in the parliament behind me and some of the questions they have asked have also a reason to more traditional party members rising up and getting more vocal about certain issues and this is more democracy in action some german voters are saying so this is a good sign at the same time of course and we'll also find out how many german voters actually do support the a d. in the course of the next few months how many people actually voted for the eighty out of a protest vote because the grand coalition is going to have to deliver on some of the core issues that people find these big parties haven't answered and so many people in september elections are believed to have given their vote to the a.f.p. nina has our political correspondent thank you. what does this decision mean for the european union let's go now to brussels and speak to political correspondent.

9:08 pm
