  • Description

    OVER A THOUSAND SOCIAL DEMOCRAT STUDENTS STAGED A DEMONSTRATION IN THE HEART OF WEST BERLIN TONIGHT (MONDAY) IN PROTEST AGAINST THE PARTY ALLIANCE WITH THE RULING CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATS TO FORM A WEST GERMAN COALITION GOVERNMENT.

    MEANWHILE IN BONN, THE LEADERS OF THE TWO POLITICAL PARTIES VOTED IN FAVOUR OF THE COALITION. THE DECISION CAME AFTER A HEATED TEN-HOUR DEBATE WHICH LASTED LATE INTO THE NIGHT.

    THE ALLIANCE, AGREED TO IN PRINCIPLE LAST FRIDAY (25 NOV) AT A MEETING OF PARTY LEADERS, WILL END THE MONTH-OLD BONN GOVERNMENT CRISIS. IT WILL ALSO GIVE THE SOCIAL DEMOCRATS THEIR FIRST TASTE OF NATIONAL RULE SINCE 1930.

    THE DECISION OF THE SOCIAL DEMOCRATS TO JOIN THE VERY PARTY THEY HAVE OPPOSED FOR 17 YEARS HAS BROUGHT ANGRY PROTESTS FROM THOUSANDS OF PARTY MEMBERS.

    DR. KURT-GEORG KIESINGER, THE CHRISTIAN DEMOCRAT CANDIDATE TO SUCCEED DR. LUDWIG ERHARD AS CHANCELLOR; SAID IN AN INTERVIEW EARLIER TODAY THAT BOTH PARTIES WOULD HAVE TO RE-ADJUST THEIR ATTITUDES UNDER THE COALITION.
