The free voters are now nominating their own candidate for the federal presidential election on February 13: the physicist Stefanie Gebauer from Kremmen in Brandenburg. This was announced by the Free Voters.
Munich – Gebauer is “a young power woman in her early 40s from local politics, studied physics, who stands for the political center, taking responsibility and optimism about the future,” said Free Voters boss Hubert Aiwanger. “We Free Voters are showing that we have capable people from the middle of society who are advancing Germany and bringing the country together.” The parliamentary groups from Bavaria, Rhineland-Palatinate and Brandenburg also unanimously advocated Gebauer.
The Free Voters send a total of 18 electors to the Federal Assembly on February 13. The re-election of incumbent Frank-Walter Steinmeier is considered completely certain there – in addition to the traffic light parties, the Union has also signaled its support.
In the 2017 federal presidential election, the Bavarian state parliamentarian and former TV judge Alexander Hold ran for the Free Voters. dpa
