Germany’s centre-left Social Democrats (SPD) have secured a narrow win over outgoing Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservatives in national elections, with party leader Olaf Scholz claiming a “clear mandate” to form the government for the first time since 2005.

SPD leader Olaf Scholz says he would like to form a coalition government with the Green party and Free Democratic Party (FDP).

The climate crisis is likely to play a key role during the talks.
