Weed killer disturbs German coalition talks
The vote on the extended use of the weed killer glyphosate in Europe has already put pressure on the talks about a grand coalition government in Germany.
Germany voted in favour of the proposal to allow glyphosate for another five years, against the wishes of Minister Hendricks (SPD party) of Environment. She publicly stated that she had agreed with Minister Schmidt of Agriculture that Germany would abstain from voting. Two hours before the vote she had informed Schmidt that she was against the extension.
However, Schmidt, member of the CSU party, voted in favour.
For himself alone
The conflict comes on the day that Merkel pressured her current coalition partner [SPD] to continue the Grand Coalition. She said that the two parties should form a stable government, in view of major challenges that the country faces in the international and domestic areas.
