Free Democratic Party (FDP) leader Christian Lindner said his party was ready to begin discussions with the Greens to find ‘common ground’ amid moves towards coalition talks, during a statement from Berlin on Monday.

"We have decided, firstly, that we should start explorations or pre-explorations with Alliance 90 / The Greens," he said.

"Between the Greens and the FDP, there are the biggest differences in terms of content between the parties of the centre, who could now talk to each other about forming a government. Therefore it makes sense in light of this polarisation that has sometimes existed, to search for common ground," he added.

Lindner, whose party secured 11.50 percent of the vote according to preliminary results, said he would thereafter be open to invitations for discussions with the CDU/ CSU or SPD, if they came.

SOT, Christian Lindner, Free Democratic Party leader (Germany): "We are the strongest force among the first-votes, and together with the Greens, the most popular with the younger voters. We have now reached over 76,000 members and thereby reached a record membership [for the FDP] and in addition we have met with success in a couple of state elections yesterday. All of this shows that the FDP boasts an independent political offer."

SOT, Christian Lindner, Free Democratic Party leader (Germany): "We have decided, firstly, that we should start explorations or pre-explorations with Alliance 90 / The Greens. The federal executive has commissioned myself and general secretary Volker Wissing to conduct these talks. Between the Greens and the FDP, there are the biggest differences in terms of content between the parties of the centre, who could now talk to each other about forming a government. Therefore it makes sense in light of thispolarisation, that has sometimes existed, to search for common ground."

SOT, Christian Lindner, Free Democratic Party leader (Germany): "Neither the Union nor the SPD stand for departure [from the consensus]. Both parties have ruled for a long time, the SPD has been in power since 1998 with a four-year break. This is not a party of new beginnings. Neither is the Union. The parties that wanted a change away from the status quo in recent years were the Greens and the FDP. And that is why it makes sense that these two first seek to conduct talks with one other to see whether, despite all the differences, it could become a progressive centre of a new coalition."

SOT, Christian Lindner, Free Democratic Party leader (Germany): "Second, we decided that after the talks with Bündnis 90 / Die Grünen we would be open to accepting invitations from the CDU/CSU or SPD, if they come, about further talks."

SOT, Christian Lindner, Free Democratic Party leader (Germany): "We, the FDP, have received information on content from the CSU and SPD leadership. But we have decided that we do not want to participate in this fascinating communication of the SPD leadership. "
