BERLIN — The Latest on efforts to form a new government in Germany (all times local):

7:00 p.m.

Members of Germany’s center-left Social Democrats have agreed to open talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservatives on whether to renew their governing coalition or at least support a minority government.

A party congress voted Thursday to support a motion put forward by party leaders that called for talks on “whether and in what form” the Social Democrats can support a new government.
