German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Wednesday agreed to form a coalition government with campaign rivals the Social Democrats, two months after her conservatives won elections but fell short of a full majority. Merkel's Christian Democratic Union (CDU), their Bavarian allies the CSU and the Social Democratic Party (SPD) agreed the deal after marathon talks lasting 17 hours before party leaders formally presented it to a meeting of some 75 delegates from all three parties.AFP
