Green Election - Annalena Baerbock Performs Better Than Habeck

Annalena Baerbock


Annalena Baerbock:


The 38-year-old Annalena Baerbock received 97.1 per cent. Also confirmed Robert Habeck with over 90 per cent of the votes as chairman.

Annalena Baerbock has been elected Federal Chairman of the Greens for a further two years. The 38-year-old received at the Federal Party Congress in Bielefeld 97.1 per cent of the vote.

Robert Habeck has also been elected Federal Chairman of the Greens for a further two years. The 50-year-old received 90.4 per cent of the vote.

The Greens have to ask themselves the question of whether to set up a chancellor candidate for the next general election - so far that is taboo in the party leadership.

Baerbock received in Bielefeld the best election result in the history of Alliance 90 / The Greens - the West German Greens and the East German Alliance 90 had merged in 1993.

The best result so far had been achieved by today's Bundestag Vice President Claudia Roth. She got 2001 in Stuttgart at 91.5 per cent.

Baerbock wants to create broader alliances:


Baerbock had been 64.5 per cent in their first election almost two years ago, but they had a counter-candidate. In Bielefeld, 740 out of 762 delegates voted for them.

Baerbock accepted the election. In her application speech, she had formulated as a task for the party to create "broader alliances". "Not with those who tick exactly as we do, but with those who challenge us."

Only then could the Greens change rather than promise, even if it was exhausting and complicated. "We do not just have to formulate goals, we also have to implement them, in the here and now."

She does not want the power of shaping to be left to the globalized economy, said Baerbock. "I want politics to take responsibility for shaping our future."

It wants an economy within planetary boundaries, and without oil, coal, or gas, yet securing prosperity.

The "ecological transformation" must also be social and work for all people - including steelworkers or craftsmen.
