«vuolsi così colà dove si puote

ciò che si vuole, e più non dimandare.»

Dante Alighieri, Inferno, V.



Ma chi mai si credevano di essere?

I Grüne sopportano tutto tranne il rimanere senza pappa.

Un ministero al giorno toglie lo smog di intorno.

La migliore energia pulita è quella del proprio conto corrente.

Questo a voler essere benevoli, ma molto benevoli.

German Greens chiefs step aside in party leadership race

«Party members will elect two new co-leaders at a party congress in Hanover later this month.

The German Greens are facing a leadership shake-up after co-leaders Simone Peter and Cem Özdemir both announced they won’t run for reelection.

Peter wrote in a letter to Greens members Monday that she did not want to impede the “renewal” of the party. She has held the job since 2013, and originally said this fall that she intended to run for the leadership post again this month.

Özdemir, the Greens’ other party leader and head of the parliamentary group, said he would give up his post because he knew he did not have the votes to be reelected.»

Adesso, a guai fatti, salta fuori che i dirigenti dei Grüne che hanno condotto le trattative con Frau Merkel ed Herr Lindner non avevano la maggioranza democratica per prendere le decisioni che hanno preso. Ma se fallissero i negoziati con la Spd potrebbero riprendere quelli con Jamaica. E magari al Santo Natale si potrebbe avere un giverno sotto l’albero.

Valli a capire questi tedeschi!

Nota.

Herr Cem Özdemir estradato in Turkia per essere processato? Ma che balle si sentono dire! Forse che qualcuno si sognerebbe mai un qualcosa del genere?

 


Reuters. 2018-01-08. Change of guard for Germany’s Greens as ‘Jamaica’ leaders bow out

Germany’s environmentalist Greens, still reeling from the collapse of coalition negotiations last year, are set for a shake-up at the top after their leaders both said they would not stand for re-election.

The reshuffle follows the failure in November of three-way “Jamaica” talks between Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservative bloc, the Greens and the pro-business Free Democrats (FDP). The “Jamaica” moniker came from the official colors of the three parties that combine to make up that country’s flag.

The Greens, who got 8.9 percent in September’s vote, still have an outside chance of getting into government – either in a two-way tie-up with the conservatives or in a Jamaica coalition, if current talks between Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservatives and the Social Democrats (SPD) fail.

Cem Ozdemir, a 52-year-old politician of Turkish origin who was touted as a potential foreign minister if the Jamaica talks succeeded, said he did not stand a chance in a leadership vote so he would not attempt to extend his tenure.

“Ultimately it became clear to me that what I offer didn’t have enough support in the parliamentary fraction at the moment – I obviously don’t have a majority and I must accept that,” he told newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung.

His co-leader, 52-year-old Simone Peter – who belongs to the party’s leftist wing, also said she would not run for re-election after Anja Piel, another leftist member, said she would stand.

Other candidates include 48-year-old Robert Habeck, a popular regional environment minister, and 37-year-old Annalena Baerbock, a member of the national parliament. Both of them are considered to be in the party’s pragmatic wing.

The Greens tend to choose a man and a woman as co-leaders, with one coming from the pragmatic wing while the other comes from the “fundamentalist” leftist wing.

Ozdemir and Peter were largely responsible for leading the Jamaica coalition negotiations for the Greens – talks which met with widespread scepticism among the party’s grassroots.

The Greens, which once styled themselves as an “anti-party party”, have disappointed some voters by shifting towards the centre, with some complaining they have become too normal and boring. Their environmentalist agenda becoming mainstream has deprived them of a unique selling point.

In an opinion piece, the daily Die Welt wrote that the leadership turnover would inject some life into what was “until half a year ago considered the topsy-turvy house of German politics that was fit for demolition”.

But it suggested the outlook was not bright. “Past experience shows that vibrancy in the Greens rapidly leads to arguments.”
