Will Germany's Social Democratic Party back a coalition?

The dispute over a new grand coalition has already cost Martin Schulz his job and with the result still uncertain, both sides are marshalling their arguments, and their voters.

    Germany's Social Democrats (SPD) will announce on Sunday whether its members have backed a coalition with Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU).

    A "no" vote might force new elections.

    The coalition debate within the SPD party has already seen its leader Martin Schulz step down.

    Al Jazeera's Dominic Kane reports from Berlin.
