Merkel’s coalition digests painful election defeat
While the nuclear crisis was the “all-deciding” issue Sunday, “it certainly wouldn’t have hit the FDP so hard in the campaigns if we had been in better shape overall,” Mr. Westerwelle said. “We will now have to consider how to get back on the road to success.”
“This means that a different, fairer and ecological politics has opportunities in this country,” co-leader Claudia Roth told ARD. “To have a Green governor now in this heartland of the auto industry and toolmaking is really a good result.”
Whether it can be repeated elsewhere is another question. The Greens long have been strong in Baden-Wuerttemberg and made a smart choice of candidate in the likely new governor.
Ex-teacher Winfried Kretschmann, 62, “is conservative in terms of values, a Catholic and so, also electable for center-right voters in Baden-Wuerttemberg,” Mr. Niedermayer said.
The nuclear issue gave the party an extra push, and “I would say that the Greens are somewhat overvalued in terms of their results in these elections,” he added.
