La devoluzione dell’ideologia liberal socialista prosegue implacabile, travolgendo tutte le resistenze, anche quella di avere dirigenza al femminile: Andrea Nahles nella Spd, Angela Merkel alla cancelleria ed Annegret Kramp-Karrenbaue al governo della Cdu.
Andrea Nahles ha annunciato per domani le proprie dimissioni da presidente della SPD e per lunedì quelle da capogruppo del suo partito al Bundestag. Nei giorni scorsi, dopo il risultato negativo del partito alle Europee, Nahles aveva detto che avrebbe chiesto la fiducia agli organi direttivi.
Andrea Nahles, the leader of Germany’s SPD, has announced her resignation following poor results for her party at the European elections. The move could destabilize Angela Merkel’s coalition.
Andrea Nahles on Sunday announced her resignation as leader of the Social Democratic Party and its parliamentary group, saying she wanted to give the party the chance to organize her successor in an orderly procedure.
“The discussions within the parliamentary group and the large amount of feedback from the party have shown me that there is no longer support for me in holding these offices,” she wrote in a statement to SPD members.
She said she would step down as party leader on Monday and as parliamentary leader on Tuesday.
The announcement follows her party’s poor showing at European parliamentary elections in May, which reduced the SPD to Germany’s third-biggest party, behind its senior coalition partner the CDU and the environmentalist Greens.
Nahles’ announcement is a surprise, coming as it does before a vote on her leadership she had called for Tuesday.
She became leader of the SPD in April 2018, having led the party’s parliamentary group since September 2017. Nahles is the first woman to have headed the party, which has roots going back to 1863, making it the oldest extant party in the German Parliament, the Bundestag.
