The SPD is a strange party. In the past year, she has been in a complicated, expensive, and complex process, a double peak, since then, Saskia esque and Norbert Walter-Borjans, the Chairman. Impressively, Olaf Scholz, Vice Chancellor and Minister of Finance, the real political heavyweight in the party had lost at that time. The next important personnel political decision that is soon-to-be: the Chancellor candidacy.
everything on Scholz is – especially now that he is due to Wirecard in the criticism. The Chairman would have the right to first access, say, you wanted to and have nothing against Scholz. Walter-Borjans says that Scholz was "a serious Option". Esque praises, albeit tight-lipped, Scholz was "a reliable Partner and a very competent Finance Minister, who enjoys the German citizens a high Reputation". What says at the same time: not so much in the own party.
The SPD wanted him? not at their peak, but the Chancellor, he can be happy Strange Logic. Where did this come from? The SPD does not believe even in the possibility, in the General election good results? The opportunities are not dismissed out of Hand. The Union still doesn't know who should lead and who is candidate for Chancellor. Only one thing is clear: The Chancellor himself, the biggest obstacle for the SPD, not on and not gives your potential successor from the own troops, apparently, also the possibility, as a short time to draw Chancellor in the election campaign. All of this improved the situation for the SPD is enormous. With such a dry praise of his Chairman thought Scholz sees the clear front. He also knows he is appreciated not only among the voters of the SPD, but also at other, who trust him to the office, even though he is in the SPD.
The SPD would not be under such circumstances, even if you prevented that Scholz is coming by walk to the Chancellor candidacy. The a bring the group Chairman Rolf Mützenich into the game. Others, such as the former Deputy Chairman Ralf Stegner are looking for ways Scholz hedge, if he is not already prevent.
Stegner writes, to Scholz, a Team put to the side, to complement him, "both in terms of the political spectrum, as well as in terms of temperament, with the policy". There should be no election, "in which the people ask, in what party the candidate is actually". Stegner, wants to be in the next Bundestag and such a Team certainly would like to belong, identifies examples of successful collaboration, the Duo of Willy Brandt and Helmut Schmidt, Gerhard Schröder and Oskar Lafontaine. How that turned out in each case, however, is known.Updated Date: 20 July 2020, 02:19
