The party congress next to the party congress
A digital party congress like this is something nice for most of the comrades: The ladies and gentlemen are sitting at home, there is lively tweeted and internal chats
snappy or amusing comments sent.
And one or the other comrade did not hide the fact that he was going to this or that round of introductions
like to indulge in the “hard alcohol” would. Which of course nobody does, because the comrades are disciplined and have to be physically (and mentally) be able to run to the ballot box.
SPD covers more than Gottschalk
By the way, the SPD is already more than 80 minutes behind schedule. The line for 8 p.m. was: “Decentralized
Ballot box election (1) in the polling stations, “Now, however, their debate to introduce the candidates is underway …. You can lots of woodchip wallpapers again see in the home office … When do you go to the polling stations? Whether somebody reminds the comrades that from 11 p.m. the ban on alcohol sales gilt?
A commitment to red-red-green and solid finances
Robert Drewnicki is Müller’s confidante, works in the Rotes Rathaus, comes from Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf and is the father of three children.
“I want to be a decent cashier who enables as much political work as possible.” He wants to help ensure that the election campaign is properly planned. “The background noise” must be financed from the funds saved. In addition, donations would have to come. He sees the SPD as a party of solidarity: “The strong help the weak.”
Drewnicki already has specific ideas about his work.
First and foremost, the party has to be, one is in difficult waters.
The red-red-green alliance was the right decision.
“It is good that we take into account the interests of the entire population and not of the clientele groups.” R2G is good for the city and must succeed in Berlin. A slip of the tongue: At first he said “win”.
Drewnicki is a qualified political scientist. You can tell in his speech. But
It could have been a little more heart.
Big B at the SPD
After the candidate rounds for the deputies, there are now further presentations. The “Schöneberger”, this is how Michael Biel introduces himself, he is running as state cashier and successor to Angelika Schöttler.
Michael Biel wants to be “the sixth B” in the state board: “I am Michael Biel”, engaged and soon to be married. That’s nice. And now follows Robert Drewnicki.
“Also on the way outside the bubble SPD”
Julian Zado from Mitte introduces himself as someone who
also outside the bubble SPD on the way is. The crisis makes people poor and promotes social inequality. “Society needs a strong and active state.” His claim to make politics was: “I wanted to tear something.” He put his heart and soul into the Equal Opportunities and Statutes Commission. And he got himself for the rent cover used. “It is very clear to me that we have to develop this instrument progressively.” And if he were chosen, he would not be a yes-man. He wants to remain “constructive and critical”.
