“Back to green roots”

Süddeutsche Zeitung

The Green Party plans to base its campaign for the autumn federal elections on the core topics of environment and climate protection, announced Green parliamentary group head Katrin Göring-Eckhardt, writes Stefan Braun in Süddeutsche Zeitung. She said her party would emphasise the destruction of the environment, the ecologic modernisation of the economy, but also the climate crisis and its significance for global migration currents. Topics such as social justice would not be a priority, as the Social Democrats - with their new frontrunner Martin Schulz - were seen as too strong in these areas, writes Braun.
