Daniel Guenther, Governor of Schleswig-Holstein and member of the German Christian Democrats (CDU), leaves on the last day of preliminary talks over the creation of a new government coalition which were adjourned on November 17, 2017 in Berlin, Germany. The German Christian Democrats (CDU), its sister party the Bavarian Christian Democrats (CSU), the Free Democratic Party (FDP) and the Greens Party (Buendnis 90/Die Gruenen) have been slogging through three weeks of talks that have shown a reluctance for compromise on certain key issues, making the outcome uncertain.
