North Rhine-Westphalia: Merz promotes black-green coalition agreement for NRW

Bonn (dpa / lnw) - The CDU federal chairman Friedrich Merz has campaigned for the acceptance of the black-green coalition agreement for North Rhine-Westphalia. In a video greeting at the CDU state party conference in Bonn, Merz said on Saturday that the coalition agreement to be voted on was "a good basis for good cooperation and a good state government in Düsseldorf". He would like the approval of the approximately 640 party delegates of the CDU.

State party conferences of the CDU and the Greens will vote on the first black-green coalition agreement for NRW on Saturday. If the base approves the work as expected, Wüst - currently still head of a black-yellow government - could be re-elected prime minister on Tuesday in the Düsseldorf state parliament with a black-green majority.

On May 15, the CDU emerged as the clear winner of the state elections in the most populous federal state with 35.7 percent. The Greens were able to almost triple their share of the vote compared to 2017 to 18.2 percent and ended up in third place behind the SPD (26.7). So far, NRW has been governed by the CDU and FDP. The Free Democrats had halved their election result to 5.9 percent. Black and yellow could therefore no longer govern.
