In North Rhine-Westphalia, the CDU and the Greens want to govern together for the first time – the coalition agreement is still being finalized. At the end of the month the cooperation should already be sealed.


Just under a month and a half after the state elections, the first black-green government alliance in North Rhine-Westphalia should be in place at the end of June.

CDU and Greens want their coalition agreement on 25. June to be approved at party conferences, Prime Minister Hendrik Wüst (CDU) should then on 28. be re-elected to Parliament in June. The two parties announced this on Friday in Düsseldorf.

Both parties only entered the coalition negotiations at the end of May. “Two weeks of open, intensive and, above all, constructive talks with the tailwind of a detailed exploratory result have shown that there is a good and sustainable basis for a successful conclusion of the coalition talks between the CDU and the Greens,” said Wüst. “We have many goals, but of course we still have intensive days of working together ahead of us.” In the “reconciliation of supposed opposites” there is an opportunity for both partners and for the country.

Green Party leader Mona Neubaur said: “North Rhine-Westphalia is facing major challenges that require sustainable answers .” In the past few weeks, the CDU and the Greens have agreed that these answers “require new alliances and alliances.” A socially just and climate-neutral transformation of our society presupposes “that we overcome old rifts and historically grown camps”.

Plenum planned for the end of June

The Groups of the CDU and Greens want to ask the President of the State Parliament, which is actually from 22. until 24. Postpone the plenum planned for June by almost a week due to the planned election of the Prime Minister (28. to 30.June).

13 Specialist working groups are currently working on the coalition agreement. The basis is a comprehensive twelve-page exploratory paper.

From the state election on 15. On May 11, the CDU emerged as the clear winner with 35,7 percent. The SPD, on the other hand, slipped to 257 percent. The Greens were able to increase their share of the vote compared to 35 to 22,2 percent almost tripled and ended up in third place. So far, the federal state has been governed by the CDU and FDP.
