Berlin CDU leader Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer has reiterated that her party wants to hold onto the grand coalition of the Union and the SPD. “The CDU is loyal to the contract. It wants to continue this coalition on the basis of this coalition agreement. Whether the SPD wants that, she has to decide for herself, “said Kramp-Karrenbauer on Monday evening in the ARD” Tagesthemen “. This must clarify the SPD party congress on the weekend.
At the same time she congratulated the designated leadership duo of the Social Democrats, Saskia Esken and Norbert Walter Borjans, which had prevailed in a membership decision against Olaf Scholz and Klara Geywitz.
Esken and Walter Borjans are considered GroKo skeptics. Kramp-Karrenbauer made it clear: “There will be no renegotiation of the coalition agreement.”
The reference to the revision clause anchored in the coalition agreement does not deem the CDU leader to be effective. The clause states that the policy must be adjusted if basic conditions change massively. The economy is weakening, admitted Kramp-Karrenbauer, but one of a massive burglary is one but away and could respond based on the coalition agreement in the context of normal government action.
Kramp-Karrenbauer pointed out that also CDU and CSU had elected new chairmen in this legislative period, without questioning the coalition agreement. The question of a possible minority government in the event of a break in the coalition avoided Kramp-Karrenbauer. “We have been elected to govern to implement the electoral mandate,” she said. The SPD had to decide whether she wanted that too.
