Scholz said the new government would not pursue the “lowest common denominator” but rather a “powerful policy”.
He stressed that the cornerstones of the new government’s policy were a “sovereign Europe”, friendship with France and cooperation with the United States, thereby continuing the tradition that had existed since the Second World War.
Scholz expressed the hope that the agreement reached within the next ten days will be formally approved by the parties involved in the coalition negotiations.
The Greens will submit the coalition agreement in an internal referendum, in which all 125,000 party members can participate, for approval, the SPD and FDP want to pass it at party congresses.
In the second week of December, the parties in the Bundestag want to vote on the approval of the new government.
According to sources, the SPD will have six ministerial departments in the new federal government, the Greens five and the FDP four.
The new ministry, which bundles economic and climate issues, as well as the foreign ministry, the environment ministry and the ministries for agriculture and family are to come under the control of the Greens.
The FDP is expected to lead the Ministry of Finance and the Ministries for Transport, Education and Justice.
Sources report that the SPD is controlled by the Ministries of the Interior, Defense, Health, Labor, Economy and Cooperation, as well as the newly established Ministry of Construction.
According to a coalition agreement between DPA, AFP and REUTERS, the next federal government wants to phase out coal by 2030, eight years earlier than planned.
The new government hopes to phase out the use of internal combustion engines in the meantime.
At the same time, the coalition agreement provides that 80% of German electricity consumption will be covered by so-called renewable energy sources by 2030.
So far, the plan was to cover only 65% of consumption with renewable energy sources by this point in time.
At the same time, the new coalition is campaigning for the restoration of the constitutional debt ceiling from 2023, which was lifted to deal with the economic consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic.
At the request of the FDP, the coalition agreement also contains a commitment not to raise taxes.
Nevertheless, the new coalition promises to drastically increase investments in infrastructure and climate protection.
In addition, the parties have agreed to allow dual citizenship and to facilitate the acquisition of German citizenship.
At the same time, the coalition agreement provides for the Greens to retain the right to appoint a European Union (EU) commissioner if Germany does not hold the chairmanship of the European Commission (EC).
The new coalition has also agreed to legalize marijuana.
At the same time, the parties agreed to legalize the use of armed drones in order to increase the protection of soldiers sent abroad.
