A ministerial office does not rule out SPD leader Esken in principle



SPD leader Saskia Esken does not rule out a ministerial office in the future.

Berlin – SPD leader Saskia Esken does not rule out a ministerial office in the future. After consultations with the SPD leadership, Esken said on Monday in Berlin, “that I consider the decision to run for party chairmanship together with Lars Klingbeil and also to dedicate all of our creative power to this task to be the right one, but that I do not consider all of them Eternity wants to exclude that and I do not intend to change the statutes of the SPD ». The board had previously nominated Esken and Klingbeil as the new dual leadership.

In the statutes of the SPD no such separation of offices is prescribed, but the outgoing SPD leader Norbert Walter-Borjans had made it clear that he is still in favor of such a separation. The new election of the SPD leadership positions is to take place at a party conference on the second weekend in December. A new appointment is necessary because Walter-Borjans had announced his retirement due to reasons of age.

Klingbeil said: “I am running because I believe that what I set out to do four years ago as Secretary General is to modernize this party, to renew this party, to get it on a path where we will not only have a federal election but many elections can win that this path is not over yet. ” (dpa)
