    REPORTER: THERE HAS BEEN SOME WORRY OVERSEAS THAT TWO PARTIES LIKE THE SPD AND CDU WITH MANY FUNDAMENTAL DIFFERENCES WILL NOT BE ABLE TO WORK TOGETHER TO FORM A COALITION. WHAT DO YOU THINK?
    ?


    KIESINGER: WELL, I DON'T THINK THEY ARE QUITE CONVINCED THAT WE WILL WORK, THAT WE WILL BE ABLE TO WORK TOGETHER. WE HAVE, OF COURSE, OUR DIFFERENCES, BUT WE HAVE A VERY PRECISE, A VERY EXACT PROGRAMME FOR IT, AND, AS YOU KNOW, WE DECIDED NOT TO FORM A VERY LONG COALITION. WE DECIDED TO FORM A COALITION TO THE NEXT ELECTIONS FOR THE BUNDESTAG, AND THEN TO SEPARATE AGAIN. BUT I THINK WE AGREE ON VERY IMPORTANT PROBLEMS OF FOREIGN POLICY AND ON IMPORTANT PROBLEMS OF HOME POLICY AND SO, I AM QUITE OPTIMISTIC ABOUT OUR FUTURE COOPERATION.

    Background: A LAST-MINUTE HITCH TONIGHT (TUESDAY) DELAYED FINAL AGREEMENT ON THE COMPOSITION OF WEST GERMANY'S PROJECTED GRAND GOVERNMENT COALITION OF THE RULING CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATS AND THE OPPOSITION SOCIAL DEMOCRATS. PARLIAMENTARY GROUPS OF BOTH PARTIES ANNOUNCED THE POSTPONEMENT UNTIL TOMORROW OF SEPARATE MEETING THEY WERE TO HAVE HELD TONIGHT TO APPROVE A CABINET LIST DRAWN UP BY DR. KURT GEORG KIESINGER - THE CHRISTIAN DEMOCRAT CHANCELLOR-ELECT.

    DR. KIESINGER TODAY MET WITH HERR WILLY BRANDT, THE SOCIAL DEMOCRATS' LEADER.

    THE OFFICIAL EXPLANATION FOR THE LAST-MINUTE HITCH WAS THAT THE CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATS HAD NOT HAD ENOUGH TIME TO FINALISE COALITION PLANS AS IT MET TODAY.

    DR. KIESINGER, WHO WILL REPLACE DR. LUDWIG ERHARD TO BECOME WEST GERMANY'S THIRD CHANCELLOR, DENIED THIS EVENING THAT NEW DIFFICULTIES HAD ARISEN. HE PROMISED THAT FORMATION OF A NEW GOVERNMENT WOULD TAKE ONLY A SHORT TIME LONGER.

    HE TOLD AN INTERVIEWER ON THE STEPS OF THE BADEN-WURTTEMBERG HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY TODAY:
