The electoral campaign has long been in the hot phase. The Union vehemently warns against a slide to the left. But the campaign of the red socks is more than questionable, estimates the vice-federal of the SPD Midyatli.
Kiel (AP) – The SPD’s federal deputy, Serpil Midyatli, sharply criticized the Union’s warnings of a coalition of traffic lights or red-red-green. “The Union’s red sock campaign is pure hypocrisy,” said Midyatli of the German news agency in Kiel.
With the sliding left campaign, the CDU and CSU have not only harmed their already ill candidate for chancellor, Armin Laschet (CDU). “It also disqualifies you as a serious political partner.”
During the election campaign, Laschet warned urgently against a red-red-green alliance or traffic light coalition of the Greens, SPD and FDP after the federal elections.
“Barely three years ago the CDU Prime Minister of Schleswig-Holstein, Daniel Günther, called for his party to open up in the direction of the Left Party,” said Midyatli. In Thuringia, the CDU supported the head of government Bodo Ramelow of the Left Party with the Stability Mechanism. “Now does this mean the fall of Germany? “
“In terms of political style, the Union is back in the 60s and 70s,” said Midyatli. The sense of style and humanity that Chancellor Angela Merkel has shaped over two decades in the Union will not survive. “It is bad for the Union and bad for Germany.”
