“If there are another negotiations, we will be ready for it,” Hofreiter told reporters.
“If there are new elections, we will run in these elections with our ideas, if there are new ideas – we should see whether it is reasonable, the Greens are ready for negotiations at any moment,” Hofreiter added.

If this also fails, the president of Germany will dissolve parliament and call for fresh elections.
Its very tricky for Merkel right now.
Earlier on Monday the German Free Democratic Party (FDP) announced its withdrawal from the coalition talks with the union of the Christian Democratic Union of Germany (CDU) and Christian Social Union in Bavaria (CSU) and the Greens (prospective 'Jamaica coalition'). However, disagreements over such issues as migration and climate change have prevented parties from reaching a deal.
The CDU/CSU bloc could agree to form a minority government with the Greens. If no government is formed, a new parliamentary election will have to be scheduled.
