(GermanPolicy.com) – The co-chair of the SPD, Saskia Esken, would like to run again for the party office she has been holding. It is under discussion that SPD general secretary Klingbeil take the place of co-chairman from Norbert Walter-Borjans. Esken said the SPD should be modernized and that the historical values of the party should be increased. Esken commented: “The SPD is united, successful and strong as it has not been for years.” She added that she has the intention to continue on this path. Rumors that Esken is aiming for a ministerial office in the next Federal Government have thus not been confirmed.
