  • Description

    DR ADENAUER'S CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATS AND THE OPPOSITION SOCIAL DEMOCRATS HAD THEIR FIRST OFFICIAL TALKS IN BONN YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) ON A NEW WEST GERMAN COALITION GOVERNMENT.

    THE SOCIAL DEMOCRATS SENT A THREE-MAN DELEGATION TO THE PALAIS SCHAUMBURG, DR ADENAUER'S OFFICIAL RESIDENCE:- PARTY CHAIRMAN ERICH OLLENHAUER, DEPUTY CHAIRMAN HERBERT WEHNER, AND THE DEPUTY LEADER OF THE PARLIAMENTARY PARTY, FRITZ ERLER.

    HERR OLLENHAUER HAD A PRIVATE HALF-HOUR DISCUSSION WITH THE CHANCELLOR BEFORE HIS TWO COLLEAGUES AND THE CHRISTIAN DEMOCRAT NEGOTIATING COMMISSION JOINED THEM FOR FURTHER TALKS LASTING NEARLY TWO HOURS.

    A STATEMENT ISSUED AFTERWARDS MERELY SAID THAT BOTH SIDES HAD AGREED "TO PURSUE THESE DISCUSSIONS SOON". IT EMPHASIZED THAT NEITHER DURING THE TALKS NOR DURING EARLIER, UNOFFICIAL CONTACTS HAD ANY COMMITMENTS BEEN ASSUMED BY EITHER SIDE.

    THE CHANCELLOR'S DECISION TO SEEK AN ALLIANCE WITH THE SOCIAL DEMOCRATS, WHOM HE HAS FORCEFULLY CONDEMNED IN THE PAST, IS A REMARKABLE CHANGE IN HIS POLICY. IF THE ALLIANCE CAME INTO BEING IT WOULD BE THE MOST IMPORTANT DEVELOPMENT IN WEST GERMANY'S INTERNAL AFFAIRS SINCE THE FOUNDING OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC IN 1949.

    (TODAY, THE FREE DEMOCRATS - DR ADENAUER'S COALITION PARTNERS UNTIL THE "SPIEGEL" AFFAIR - MADE A COUNTER-MOVE BY BEGINNING THEIR OWN COALITION TALKS WITH THE SOCIAL DEMOCRATS.)
