Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Irish Times is also reportng that:

The centre-right party leader Armin Laschet insisted after polls closed that he can still be chancellor in a "future alliance" with the FDP and Greens.

This is interesting as it is within the rules, but not within the norms. If he insists that is the case, a GroKo becomes less liekly and FDP+Greens could play out the two big ones against each other (assuming the FDP and Greens realise this and can agree between each other). Another way this can go is that internal enemies of Laschet uses it as cause to depose him.
