German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz Running For Chancellor In 2021

German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz Running For Chancellor In 2021

German finance minister Olaf Scholz said that he would be a candidate in the 2021 election to determine who will succeed Chancellor Angela Merkel.

 

"I look forward to a fun, fair and successful election campaign," wrote Scholz after revealing that the Social Democrat Party (SPD) unanimously picked him as their candidate in 2021 chancellor election.

 

It is not yet clear who will be the conservatives’ candidate for chancellor. Ms Merkel has said she will not contest the next election after leading Germany since 2005.

 

Mr Scholz faces a stiff challenge. The SPD, which for decades vied with Ms Merkel’s Christian Democrats (CDU) for dominance of German politics, has not won a national election since 2002 and now languishes a distant third in most opinion polls behind the conservatives and the upstart Greens.

 

Mr Scholz was nominated as chancellor candidate by the SPD co-leaders, Saskia Esken and Norbert Walter-Borjans.

 

In what some saw as a recognition of the steep challenge ahead for the SPD, Walter-Borjans on Sunday conceded what had once been inconceivable – that alongside the Greens, the party would be open to govern in coalition with the Left party, heirs to the Communist Party of the former East Germany.
