After the parliamentary elections held in Hamburg, the SPD and the Greens started a coalition talks with the light rail train (Stadtbahn). In his election campaign, the SPD opposed the light rail system that the Greens advocated for the relief of urban transport, instead demanding the expansion of the U-Bahn network, which usually operates underground. SPD and the Greens, which came together to discuss transportation, port and economy and planned to make a joint press statement after the meeting, canceled this appointment.
It is estimated that the two, who will continue their talks on Monday, need more time on this issue. Another problem awaiting the Greens with the SPD is the idea of deepening the Elbe river. The SPD defends this idea, while the Greens oppose it. Whether there will be an agreement on this issue will be certain after the negotiations are over and the delegates vote. Speaking to NDR 90,3 on the issue, SPD's candidate for prime minister Olaf Scholz said, “We have a lot of work to do. For the next 5 years to do the right thing in Hamburg, time should be set aside for all the details before the government is formed. " said.
The SPD, which came to power alone in 2011, lost its absolute majority in the last elections and fell from 62 to 58. The SPD, which needs a coalition partner to form the government, started its first meeting with the Greens as promised before the elections. However, if the SPD fails to reach an agreement with the Greens, there are two other parties that he can meet. While the FDP openly stated that it is ready for a coalition with the SPD before the elections, the CDU stated that it will evaluate if such an offer comes. As of now, it does not seem likely that the SPD will form a coalition with the Left Party and the AfD in the 6-party parliament.
