Germany’s parties of three which are SPD, Greens and FDP have inked a coalition agreement on Tuesday in a bid to develop the country's economy and change the domestic policy ahead of taking office.


Elected by the lower house of parliament Social Democrat Olaf Scholz is due to become a German Chancellor on Wednesday.

Three leaders of the parties have publicly signed the deal of 177 pages in front of cameras thus marking the inevitable changes for the country.

“This should be a morning star,” SPD leader Olaf Scholz said.

FDP leader Christian Lindner signing an agreement said that the time to act has come as the previous weeks were only full of talks.

“From this week we want to work on making progress. We are under no illusion, we face big challenges,” Lindner said.

The complete agreement was formed and shown in the last month, but there was lack of members to approve it for further signing.
