The FDP has already announced its government team, and the Greens will follow on Thursday. In the case of the SPD, it can take even longer. After the presentation of the coalition agreement of the three traffic light parties, attention is directed to the personal details. Who will be what in the three-party coalition that is committed to “progress”?
However, some items are still unclear. Both Greens until late Wednesday evening three ministries had not been assigned with certainty:
- Family, seniors, women and youth
- Environment, nature conservation, nuclear safety and consumer protection
- Food and Agriculture
Possible candidates are the current parliamentary group leaders Katrin Göring-Eckardt and Anton Hofreiter, the former federal manager Steffi Lemke and the former party leader Cem Ozdemirwho was elected to the Bundestag in Stuttgart with a sensational result of around 40 percent.
In the SPD there are even more open questions:
- defense: This ministry surprisingly fell to the Social Democrats in the coalition negotiations. Until Wednesday it was speculated that it would go to the FDP. SPD General Secretary Lars Klingbeil It is said that there is great interest in the leadership of the Bundeswehr. However, he should be elected party leader in December. It is not impossible to do both at the same time, but it could be difficult. Another promising candidate is the SPD parliamentary group manager Carsten Schneider in conversation.
- Bless you: The most obvious line-up would be the SPD health expert Karl Lauterbach, who has had a media presence since the beginning of the corona pandemic like hardly any other politician. Lauterbach, however, has a problem: he is not particularly popular with Chancellor-designate Olaf Scholz.
- Build: A possible candidate for this post is the previous environment minister Svenja Schulze.
- economical co-operation and Development: For this purpose, the previous human rights officer in the Federal Foreign Office, Bärbel Kofler, traded. But also the Potsdam woman Klara Geywitz, 45, would be an option that ran in duo with Scholz for the SPD chairmanship in 2019.
