German Chancellor Olaf Scholz announced that he intends to re-nominate his candidacy for the post of Federal Chancellor of Germany. A second term can be guaranteed to him following the results of the elections to the Bundestag, which will be held in 2025.
“Of course, I will put forward my candidacy,” Scholz said in an interview with journalists from the German media concern Funke.
Scholz represents the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD), which won the parliamentary elections in 2021. She teamed up with the Greens and the Free Democratic Party, creating a relatively stable coalition.
Now 64, Scholz became a member of the youth branch of the SPD during his school years, when he was seventeen, and after half a century remains true to his choice.
According to recent opinion polls, more than half of the German population believes that Scholz is not doing his job well.
His predecessor, Angela Merkel, recently said that the current chancellor has done well in resolving the migration crisis that continues to plague Germany. And this is so far the only compliment addressed to the current head of the German government.
