“Green worries”

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

Considerable discrepancies between the German Green Party’s draft election programme and the ’Ten-point plan for Green governance‘ it published in May will make this weekend’s federal party conference difficult, writes Henrike Roßbach in an opinion piece in Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. For example, the two documents refer to different coal-exit dates, and only the draft programme says that from 2030 onward, only emission-free cars should be produced. In light of the weak polling results three months before the elections, the Greens “must not make any more mistakes”, writes Roßbach.

For background, read the CLEW dossier Vote2017 - German elections and the Energiewende and the factsheet The Green Party's draft election programme - a first look.
