Germany's SPD says open to coalition talks with other parties

BERLIN, Nov 24 (Reuters) - Germany’s Social Democrats (SPD) are ready to hold talks with other parties on breaking political deadlock created by Chancellor Angela Merkel’s failure to form a coalition government, a senior member of the centre-left party said.

“The SPD will not say no to discussions,” SPD General Secretary Hubertus Heil told reporters on Friday after hours of discussion among SPD leaders.
