Baden-Württemberg’s Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann believes that the Green top candidate Annalena Baerbock is partly to blame for the results in the Bundestag election in September.
Oxford – After the missed success of the Greens in the federal election, Baden-Württemberg’s Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann also sees the reasons for Chancellor candidate Annalena Baerbock. “If you want to become Prime Minister or Chancellor, you have to make politics for everyone. If you aspire to the highest office, you have to make an offer not just for your own supporters, but for everyone, “said the only Prime Minister of the Greens, according to the Swabian newspaper during a delegation trip to Oxford, UK. “You can’t just sing the songs of your own party. I think that didn’t work. “He referred to the SPD top candidate and election winner Olaf Scholz and said:” Or you don’t sing any songs at all, as Scholz cleverly did. ”
In polls during the election campaign, the Greens fluctuated around 20 percent of the vote, but ultimately only achieved 14.8 percent in the election at the end of September. Green leader Baerbock was in the meantime criticized, among other things, because of plagiarism allegations. The SPD was the strongest force with 25.7 percent. Social Democrats, Greens and the FDP are currently negotiating the formation of a joint government.
Quarrel with the Greens? Kretschmann pokes at Baerbock
According to the report, Kretschmann said in front of students: “First of all, we failed like hell.” The analysis of the election results is far from over. “Maybe we will analyze the reasons, maybe not”, the newspaper from Ravensburg quoted him. Parties are not necessarily interested in honest analyzes.
Meanwhile, the traffic light negotiations continue. The parties have agreed on changes to the Infection Protection Act, but are met with sharp criticism. 3G in the workplace also plays a crucial role in the negotiators’ planning. The opposition, in this case led by the CSU, throws down the project as too risky. The decision risks a “corona chaos in Germany”, according to the regional group leader Dobrinidt. (dpa / fmü)
