German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the leader of the Social Democrats (SPD) faced further criticism Monday from within their own parties over a new coalition deal that must still be approved by disgruntled SPD rank-and-file members.Merkel annoyed members of her Christian Democrats (CDU) by agreeing in the coalition talks to cede the finance ministry to the SPD.Many in the SPD rank and file are also unhappy with the coalition deal, which will renew an awkward ruling alliance with Merkel's bloc that has governed Germany since 2013 .Merkel said Sunday that if SPD members rejected the coalition agreement, Germany would probably hold a new election.
