BERLIN - Chancellor Angela Merkel's ruling coalition is expected to formulate a timetable on Sunday for closing Germany's nuclear power plants and a plan for replacing their output.

Merkel in March backtracked on an unpopular decision just months earlier to extend the life of aging nuclear stations in Germany, where the majority of voters opposes nuclear energy.

Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU), her Bavarian sister Christian Social Union (CSU) party and junior coalition partner the Free Democrats (FDP) are due to meet later on Sunday after an Ethics Commission ended its deliberations this weekend.

The commission, set up by the government after the Fukushima nuclear disaster to report on the future of Germany's nuclear power industry, will present its findings formally on Monday.
