GERMANY’s Chancellor Angela Merkel could soon see the end of her decade-long rule over the Bundestag after coalition talks with the Free Democratic Party suddenly collapsed.

Germany may be soon recalled to the polls after Mrs Merkel failed to conclude talks with coalition partners in order to prop up a new Christian Democratic Union (CDU) Government.

And AfD co-leader Alice Weidel warned her party was ready to further gains should new elections be called.

She said: “Merkel is finished. This shows that the AfD works because we prevented a black and green government [with the CDU/CSU and Greens].

“That’s the clear result here, and we’re preparing ourselves to be a rational opposition party in the Bundestag.”

Speaking to Deutsche Welle following the announcement of the collapse of the talks, Dr Weidel welcomed the prospect of a new vote after nearly two months of exploratory talks to establish a so-called Jamaican coalition – so-called because of the parties’ traditional colours resembling those of the Caribbean nation.

She continued: “We’re looking forward to it, and we’re looking forward to potential snap elections.”

Germany has been without a formal Government since the federal election held on September 24 produced a hung Parliament.
