BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany's three left-leaning parties have agreed a deal to rule in the eastern state of Thuringia, setting the stage for the country's first state premier from the radical Left party to take power some 25 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Bodo Ramelow, the Left's candidate in Thuringia, said in a tweet on Wednesday he had agreed a program for government with the Greens and with the Social Democrats (SPD), who rule on the national level with Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives.
