ARD election arena: Scholz: Union should “now recover in the opposition”

D.he SPD Chancellor candidate Olaf Scholz has described it as his personal goal that the Union ends up in the opposition after the federal election. Scholz did not rule out an alliance with the Left Party on Tuesday evening in the ARD “election arena”.

“You can be sure that this is my whole goal, like, by the way, as I have the impression, that of many citizens, that the CDU / CSU can now recover in the opposition,” said Scholz when asked by a spectator whether he can be sure that there is no longer a new grand coalition.

When asked by another viewer whether he could vote for the SPD without lifting the left into a government, Scholz said that he could vote for the SPD and that the questions he had asked would certainly be answered. The man had given as reasons for his skepticism concerns, among other things, about the transatlantic relationship and the further development of the EU.

Scholz: “Hour of the Citizens”

Scholz reiterated that Germany must also work with the United States on security. That also applies to NATO. “For me, there can only be one government that is completely clear about this.” That must be clear from day one.

When asked whether he would then rule out a coalition with the left, Scholz emphasized that there was currently a “very, very democratic momentum” in Germany. The future coalition will not be made out in the back room. “Now is the time for the citizens to decide,” said Scholz. It depends on the Chancellor.
