Delegates at a Green party conference in Berlin voted in favour of starting negotiations in earnest following initial explorative meetings, which could see the SPD's Olaf Scholz succeed Angela Merkel as chancellor.The targeted"traffic light" alliance - named after the parties' red, yellow and green colours - would be led by the SPD which came first in last month's election.
