Germany's Social Democrats (SPD), Greens and Free Democrats (FDP) plan to present their deal to form a coalition government at a news conference at 3pm local time (1400 GMT) on Wednesday, according to an invitation distributed by the SPD.
If the SPD, the Greens and the FDP finalize a coalition deal, the SPD's Olaf Scholz would take over as chancellor from the conservative Angela Merkel, who did not stand for a fifth term in a Sept. 26 election after 16 years in office.
