The Social Democratic candidate of the German Chancellery, Olaf Schultz, pointed out today that his conservative rival Armin Laschet (Armin Laschet) is an opposition party and expressed his willingness to join forces with the Green Party and the Liberal Party ( FDP) form an alliance.
“The CDU and CSU not only suffered heavy losses, but they also got the message from voters that they must go to the opposition,” Schultz said before entering the Social Democratic Party (SPD) meeting to analyze the situation.
“Our job now is to apply pragmatism and leadership to the task of forming a government,” he added, for which he intends to start contact with the Green Party and liberals.
It is expected that the negotiations will be difficult for all parties. The Social Democratic Party and the Green Party are better integrated politically, but both sides have found problems with the Liberal Democratic Party’s agenda. Among other things, the Social Democrats and environmentalists want tax increases that the liberals refuse. There has never been such an alliance in the German government. Now it’s Scholz’s turn to explore unknown political avenues.
The CDU and the Liberal Democratic Party are natural allies of the center-right. Despite being defeated by a narrow margin in Sunday’s opinion polls, the inclusion of the Green Party in the Federal League will be an unprecedented way and may lead to Raschelt to replace Merkel.
“In the 1969 elections, the CDU had clearly won, but in these elections, the Social Democratic Party was elected prime ministerWillie Brandt“Marshall said, alluding to a previous case in which the’lost’ candidate was able to win the negotiation. “The important thing is to form a majority,” the expert concluded.
After the 2017 election, conservatives, liberals, and environmentalists failed to form such an alliance. Much of Rashet’s political future depends on the success of Merkel’s failure four years ago.
Yesterday, the Social Democratic Party became the first power with 25.7% of the votes, an increase of 5.2% from 2017.
The conservative group formed by the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and its sister Bavarian Social Christian Union (CSU) received a 24.1% approval rating, a drop of 8.9 percentage points, the worst result in its history.
Despite this, Rashet announced last night that he is willing to try to lead the next government, for which he is considering seeking alliances with the Green Party and the Liberal Party.
Environmental education achieved the best record in history, 14.8%, an increase of 5.8 percentage points over 2017. FDP ranked fourth with 11.5%, an increase of 0.7 percentage points from four years ago.
