Robert Habeck and Annalena Baerbock will continue to act as a double after their departure as Green Party chairmen this Saturday – at least in the traffic light coalition committee.

Berlin – Robert Habeck and Annalena Baerbock will continue to act as a double after their departure as Green Party chairmen this Saturday – at least in the traffic light coalition committee. There, the Vice Chancellor and the Foreign Minister will jointly represent the cabinet members of the Greens, as the German Press Agency learned from the party.

In total, the Greens send six representatives to the monthly meetings of the committee, which is so important for voting in the coalition and which will also act as an arbitration board when things really get rough at traffic lights. In addition to Economics and Climate Ministers Habeck and Baerbock, the two parliamentary group leaders Britta Haßelmann and Katharina Dröge and the two party leaders who will be elected on Saturday – probably Omid Nouripour and Ricarda Lang – will be there.

According to dpa information, the FDP is sending six men to the committee: Finance Minister and party leader Christian Lindner, Transport Minister Volker Wissing, Justice Minister Marco Buschmann, the designated Secretary General Bijan Djir-Sarai, parliamentary group leader Christian Dürr and the first parliamentary manager Johannes Vogel.

The occupation of the SPD has not yet been finalized. It is said that this will be discussed internally and the result will be announced in due course. It should be clear, however, that in addition to Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Chancellor Wolfgang Schmidt, the party leaders Lars Klingbeil and Saskia Esken and the parliamentary group leader Rolf Mützenich will be there.

The committee met for the first time on Wednesday. Stuffed peppers – red, green and yellow – were served at the meeting, which lasted a good three hours. Nothing more is known. The coalition partners agreed not to disclose the content, as they have already done for long stretches of the coalition negotiations.

In the coalition agreement, it was agreed that the meetings of the coalition committee would take place monthly “to discuss fundamental and current political issues and to coordinate further work planning”. (dpa)
