German Social Democrat (SPD) leader Martin Schulz said his party's leaders agreed unanimously on Friday to recommend to party delegates that they give them a mandate to pursue coalition talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives.Before the two groups move to formal coalition negotiations, SPD leaders need to persuade party members to give a green light at a congress planned for Jan. 21."I think we have reached excellent results," Schulz said after the conservatives and SPD agreed a blueprint for formal coalition negotiations in exploratory talks."We Social Democrats, in our (leadership) committee, decided unanimously to recommend ... to the party congress to give the party leadership a mandate to pursue coalition negotiations to form a government," Schulz added.REUTERS AKC1553
