Angela Merkel prefers new vote

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said she would prefer new elections to leading a minority government, after a breakdown in coalition talks plunged the country into political crisis.

The Chancellor also said she did not see any reason to resign from her post despite the failed negotiations. The FDP liberals pulled out of talks with Mrs Merkel’s CDU/CSU bloc and the Greens. Germany President Frank-Walter Steinmeier urged parties to make compromises for the country’s “well-being”.Mrs Merkel faces her biggest challenge in 12 years as the Chancellor.
