Emden, Germany (dpa) - Germany‘s embattled Social Democratic Party (SPD) said on Saturday that it does not intend to rush decisions on personnel following an announcement that outgoing leader Martin Schulz would not be pushing for a cabinet post in a new government.

The party is split over whether to join a coalition government with Chancellor Angela Merkel‘s conservatives.

"We are now concentrating on the substance and want to make the case for what is written in the coalition agreement," SPD Secretary General Lars Klingbeil said on Saturday during a regional SPD conference in the northern German town of Soltau.

Schulz on Friday announced that he would not be taking up the foreign minister post he had been offered in Germany‘s new government, two days after announcing he was handing over the party leadership to party parliamentary leader Andrea Nahles.

In less than two weeks‘ time, the SPD‘s 463,723 members are due to vote on the new coalition deal with the CDU and their Bavarian sister party the CSU.

Klingbeil said leading SPD politicians are due to meet on Tuesday. "We will then talk about the question of how to proceed," he said.

Klingbeil intends to campaign for a yes vote from SPD members on the coalition agreement.

Meanwhile Kevin Kuehnert, the leader of the party‘s youth wing Jusos, is calling on members to reject the agreement in a binding vote to be held between February 20 and the first weekend of March.
