Speaking at the CDU/CSU parliamentary group’s information switch conference on the current state of the union, Laschet said the union remains ready to hold talks with the Greens and the FDP on the Jamaica coalition. The participants quoted him as saying: “Our offer, like the Christian Democratic Union in Germany, exists.” He was quoted as saying that Jamaica would be a modernization project that could reconcile many things in the country – “Jamaica would be better for Germany” than a traffic light government made up of the Social Democrats, the Greens and the FDP. Many people in the country are betting that Jamaica will be possible. At the same time, Laschet also stressed that “the goal of achieving something good for the country is more important than individual interests.” Until a new advisor is elected, everything is open. “So we have to show readiness until the last minute.”
According to various media reports, in the afternoon Laschet indicated his desire to resign. “If it goes better with other people, then gladly,” Laschet said Thursday. Regardless of Jamaica’s possible alliance with the Greens and the Free Democratic Party, he said: “Person in the end, in the beginning there’s the idea and the project.”

On negotiations with the Greens and the Liberal Democrats on Sunday and Tuesday, Laschet said they are well prepared. The fact that confidentiality cannot be guaranteed is not a good sign. Many people are still waiting for the Jamaica coalition of the Union, the Greens and the Free Democratic Party. “We must be ready until the last minute and not insult anyone,” Laschet was quoted as saying. He doesn’t know how the SPD, the Greens, and the FJP wanted to get their problems together in a traffic light.
The SPD, the Greens and the Free Democratic Party met for the first time on Thursday afternoon for a three-way discussion on government formation. Markus Söder, president of the CSU, classified the announcement of the exploratory talks of the traffic light alliance made up of the SPD, the Greens and the FDP on Wednesday as a “clear preliminary decision.” “The FDP and the Greens have decided to go along the road of these traffic lights. Now they have to follow it constantly,” he said. Reality must now be acknowledged, now it is also about “self-respect and dignity”. Laschet had already shown himself to be more open to more talks with the Greens and the FDP.
