Germany Elected A President

Originally appeared at A-specto, translated by Borislav exclusively for SouthFront

The Federal Assembly of Germany composed of 630 members of the Bundestag, and 630 representatives of federal territories, elected former Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier for president of Germany. 931 deputies voted for him. The choice of Steinmeier strengthens the position of the German Social Democratic Party in the upcoming elections for chancellor of Germany.

This makes a fourth term of Angela Merkel even more problematic. Moreover, her rival in the Bundestag elections in autumn 2017, will be the former chairman of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz, who on January 24, 2017 was elected to the post of chairman of the German Social Democratic Party.

Schultz popularity among German voters is constantly growing and in recent days has reached 32%. Unlike Merkel, Steinmeier favors a more moderate course in German – Russian relations.

      do you think Angela Merkel is helpful for Germany? She has accepted all unfair treatments from the usa. The former chancelor, Gerhard Schröder, has declined a military engagement on Iraq.

    MeMadMax if you consider the SPD or Social Democrats still left than you are about 25 years late they are center or almost center right,…if you look at what they do and not just the name.

    What a shame, really; Germany’s most popular politician was tucked away into the presidency and the eavesdropped witch was only too happy to support it, as her candidate would have lost the election anyway, as the Greens and the Leftists would most likely support Steinmeier against a right-wing candidate (even though the Leftists rightfully despise Steinmeier).

    And that is bad news not only for Germany, but for the whole Europe as well, as the eavesdropped bitch now has a chance against the upstart bookseller, because both are just about equally incompetent nitwits.
