Frank Nopper from the CDU won the mayor election in Stuttgart. Second placed Marian Schreier returns to Tengen, third placed Hannes Rockenbauch continues to fight for climate protection.
Stuttgart – The withdrawal of Veronika Kienzle (Greens) and Martin Körner (SPD) in the second round of the Stuttgart mayor election created tension not only for Marian Schreier and Hannes Rockenbauch. With 36.9 and 17.8 percent, as previously forecast in surveys, they had to admit defeat to Frank Nopper (CDU, 42.3 percent).
