The Green-Chairman Robert Habeck has announced that his party will also compete in the case of an election at the Federal level, with the two top candidates. “Sharing Power is double strength.
So we act, and we will do it more, definitely,” said Habeck on Monday in the ZDF-“morning magazine”. The double top was also, in retrospect, the secret to the success of his party. “A new understanding of Power means to be in the Team.”
demands for a speedy appointment of a green Chancellor candidate Habeck granted a cancellation. While it was important “that before an election in a timely manner with the party’s clarification on this. But since we’re not,” he said in the ZDF-show. The need to focus now to run a constructive opposition policy. “We are in the middle of a parliamentary term, which is difficult enough as it is.”
Last, had spoken of the Bavarian Green party leader Ludwig Hartmann in favour of the double top candidate and to nominate a candidate for Chancellor. Because the party should send two equal top candidates in the race, it would be unclear who should be Chancellor. The party leadership has not spoken on this issue yet, also on Monday, Habeck said.
Several opinion research institutes lead the Green, in the meantime, as the strongest power before the Union. In the case of the European elections, the Greens had become for the first time, the second-biggest party in a nationwide election. In a survey Emnid for the “Bild am Sonntag” said 51 per cent of the respondents, if they could decide between Habeck and CDU leader Annegret Kramp-karrenbauer, would you vote for a direct election of the Chancellor for Habeck.
Habeck was convinced that the recent success of his party were not a phenomenon of only temporary, but the result of a continuous development. In polls, upwards, bring an increased demand on the Green, and he said on Monday at the party headquarters. “But, above all, is essential to us that over the last few years something has grown. So this Talk of Hype and height of flight and so on seems to me to be reasonable, if we were to go to the General and not about individual percentages and the week shifts in talk.”
Habeck stressed that the party should not rest on the rise in approval. “It is now only smiling in bed at night and says, “Oh, like the everything is beautiful”, of course this is not at all,” he said. “We know that with this encouragement, each day growing larger responsibility on us.” The mean work “on all corners and edges, content type, organisational type, including in the members development and training of staff”.
