The Septembers 26 federal election to the 21 Bundestag of the Federal Republic of Germany will most probably not bring about negative changes for the Republic of Moldova, political scientist Anneli Ute Gabanyi, senior researcher of the Research Institute of Radio Free Europe in Munich and of the German Institute for International and Security Affairs in Berlin, said in IPN’s debate “Federal parliamentary election in Germany: possible effects for Germans, Europeans and Moldovans”.
“What gives me hope was seen in the election in Sachsen-Anhalt – how important the model of village-town is. Those people voted for the Christina Democratic Union (CDU), while the public was sure that they will support the right, primarily AfD (Alternative for Germany)” argued the expert.
Even if polls place Social-Democrat Olaf Sholz at the forefront, while CDU/CSU (Christian Democratic Union/Christian Social Union) does not look well as their current leader became president of the party in virtue of other circumstances than the elections. Armin Laschet (CDU) himself noted that the result is due to the fact that the SCU leader Markus Söder withdrew from the competition for designating the common candidate.
“The parties have a different agenda than the leaders admit, while Mister Sholz, a former federal minister, is the representative of the Merkel continuity.
“However, those who vote for Sholz or the Greens don’t know what they vote for. Sholz, for example, not only does not want, but cannot answer the questions of the press, if he will form an alliance with the left that wants to liquidate capitalism, our representative democracy. They want a kind of revolution against capitalism,” said the scientist.
According to her, the election in Germany can bring major changes in German politics. “To my mind, we are in front of a change not only of the political class, but also of politics, which those from Germany and those from outside Germany do not suspect.”
Speaking about the possible alliances after the elections, the expert said a new alliance of the Christian-Democrats and the Social-Christians is improbable, but not impossible, but the first will no way form a coalition with the Social-Democrats. In the case of other coalitions involving the Greens, as in the case of many past coalitions, the Liberals will make the difference, they having 12% in forecasts. “Many of the voters who were disappointed by CDU/CSU turned to the Liberals. A three-color government can be this way formed, of the Christina-Democrats, Liberals and the Greens,” said Anelli Ute Gabanyu.
The public debate “Federal parliamentary election in Germany: possible effects for Germans, Europeans and Moldovans” was staged by IPN News Agency as part of the project “Developing Political Culture through Public Debates” that is supported by the Hanns Seidel Foundation.
