  • January 1927 - Wilhelm Marx - Centre - Centre/ DVP/ DNVP/ BVP.
  • June 1928 - Hermann Muller - SPD - SPD/ Centre/ DDP/ DVP/ BVP (GRAND COALITION).

Coalitions didn't last long, with some only lasting a couple months.

Some parties refused to work together e.g. SPD and DNVP.

SPD is the majority party but isnt in many coalitions. 

They would make it have to pass laws etc. due to opposition.
