Chancellor Angela Merkel was left scrambling to drag Germany out of a crisis Monday after high-stakes talks to form a new government collapsed, potentially forcing Europe's top economy into snap elections.

Germany now faces weeks, if not months, of paralysis with a lame-duck government that is unlikely to take bold policy action at home or on the European stage.

With no other viable coalition in sight, Germany may be forced to hold new elections that risk being as inconclusive as September's polls.

Merkel Nolan Arenado Youth Jersey , whose liberal refugee policy has proved deeply divisive, had been forced to seek an alliance with an unlikely group of parties after the ballot left her without a majority.

But following more than a month of gruelling negotiations, the leader of the pro-business FDP, Christian Lindner, walked out of talks overnight, saying there was no "basis of trust" to forge a government with Merkel's conservative alliance CDU-CSU and the ecologist Greens.

"It is better not to govern than to govern badly Trevor Story Youth Jersey ," he said, adding that the parties did not share "a common vision on modernizing" Germany.

Voicing regret for the FDP's decision, Merkel vowed to steer Germany through the crisis.

"As chancellor... I will do everything to ensure that this country comes out well through this difficult time," she said.

News magazine Der Spiegel called the breakdown in negotiations a "catastrophe" for Merkel and said Germany, long seen as an island of stability, was having its "Brexit moment Ian Desmond Youth Jersey , its Trump moment."

French President Emmanuel Macron, who has sought Merkel's backing for an ambitious EU reform plan, expressed concern about Germany's political deadlock, saying "it is not in our interest that the situation becomes tense."

The euro fell on the news, but Germany's blue-chip DAX remained largely firm, losing just 0.47 percent in early trade.

The acrimonious negotiations stumbled on a series of issues including immigration. Merkel let in more than 1 million asylum seekers since 2015 Charlie Blackmon Youth Jersey , sparking a backlash that allowed the far-right AfD party to win its first seats in parliament.

Its parliamentary co-leader Alexander Gauland relished the collapse of the talks, saying that Merkel had "failed" and that his party "looks forward to potential new elections" in which it stands to make strong gains.
