This agrement will see an end to the limbo Germany found itself in ever since the elections which were held last September. In Parliament there are 709 seats, with the Christian Democrats holding 246 seats while the Social Democrats have 153 seats. The rest are divided between the smaller parties including the far right party, Alternative for Germany, which won 94 seats.
