HB BERLIN. After the cancellation of the NRW-SPD coalition and a large red-green minority government, the CDU and the Greens have strongly urged the Social Democrats, but to assume the responsibilities of government. Chancellor Angela Merkel and the caretaker Prime Minister Jürgen Rüttgers (CDU called) SPD-State leader Hannelore on force to resume talks on forming a grand coalition. Greens and Left Party demanded, however, force was to form a red-green minority government.

Force itself campaigned on the weekend at the SPD base by unanimous consent of the Board decision, in opposition to stay and to initiate the desired change in policy with its own laws motions in Parliament. The SPD would provide projects in areas such as work and education in the state parliament to vote and find it even majorities, so power on a regional assembly.

Merkel accused the SPD-State leader an "irresponsible attitude of refusal" before in difficult times. "I can only advise the SPD strongly in responsibility for North Rhine-Westphalia to return to the negotiating table and accept the realities," said the CDU chairman of the "Bild am Sonntag". Rüttgers spoke of a "form of the design of refusal". "The need to create a stable government in North Rhine-Westphalia, still exists," he said in the address of the SPD.

The black-yellow coalition in the election on 9th May their majority lost. SPD and CDU will each have 67 of the 181 seats in parliament. Force had in the past few weeks trying in vain to explore a viable government. Talks with the CDU has a large coalition remained without breakthrough, soundings from red-green with the Left Party have already failed at the first meeting. Also talks with the Greens and FDP on a traffic-light coalition brought no results.

Greens and Left Party criticized the SPD for form, no red-green minority government to want. The Green Party state chairman, said Daniela Schneckenburger in Düsseldorf, one should not watch the black-yellow government voted out projects through without the Federal Government and the austerity package.

"Red-Green must use its facilities in North Rhine-Westphalia and the possibility of a minority government, at least," she said. The chairman of the Greens parliamentary group, Juergen Trittin told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sunday newspaper, it would not understand "if the SPD does not have the power to make even a minority government, but nothing here is to tolerate a minority government under Rüttgers .

The Left party, dependent on their tolerance of the minority government would be held before power failure power instinct. Party chief Klaus Ernst said, power would pass unless it is already on the left, if they wanted to abolish the Parliament out about the tuition fees.

"You could immediately be elected to the Prime Minister and initiate a genuine policy change if it would finally give up the absurd front position to the left." As of now wear the SPD a "co-responsibility for the black and yellow welfare because they recklessly the chance of a blockage majority awarded in the Federal Council.
