If the politicians of your competition of the election campaign are accused of, you have done mostly everything right. In this respect, one can only congratulate the often-maligned social Democrats only: do you have made with the nomination of the Federal Minister Olaf Scholz to the Chancellor candidates, exceptionally, all right. The competitors each have their own problems. The Green of the pandemic on the demo kopisch descending Branch. The AfD and the FDP, self-absorbed, to the lower Left of the threshold of perception.
At the same time, the CDU has pushed their succession question on the long Bank, because the designated successor to the Chancellor is already failed a long time ago. A year before the election, the parties seem oddly confused. Only the CSU had previously made a half-set impression. The Chairman, however, has found as much pleasure in the role of the "Law and Order"pandemic fighter that could still change.
so it was natural to give the candidate for Chancellor in this show, the word. Given this situation, the socialists still only have a Chance if you can formulate a claim to leadership. In the past few years, it was only a question of who "the CDU chooses as a coalition partner," says Scholz.
social democratic past
to be Up a few weeks ago, a coalition of Union and Green is already a foregone conclusion appeared. Given the good survey of the Union was not to exclude even a reprint of a coalition with the FDP values. For the socialists, it may go in the coming year, just about its previous function as the most important party-political competitor of the Union.
it was so far out of your own way, because the SPD to pass a simple fact: she was in the last 22 years, nearly always to the government, except for between 2009 and 2013. Who has denied but these eighteen years, of course, will convince no voters from themselves. Hardly a chooses a party that defines itself as the cause for a political Disaster. Therefore, this Interview question is: How Scholz will deal with this social democratic variant of dealing with the past?
The candidate for Chancellor tried to be diplomatic formulations to the address of his former and still according to strong critics within the party. The SPD wool to surprise the Public with the unity of the party in the coming months, so Scholz. In addition, it is a mistake to make a good cooperation of the complete agreement in all material matters.
A red-red-green Alliance is only a Phantom
in This case, Scholz continued to be quite programmatic accents. The SPD will ensure sound budgets, an increase in the top tax rate to 75 percent, he refused categorically, while he supported the Swiss model of a moderate property tax. At the same time, membership in Nato was not for him to debate, even to the withdrawal of the last remaining American nuclear weapons from Germany to be carried out only in coordination with the allies in the Western Alliance.Updated Date: 13 August 2020, 04:19
