Germany’s Scholz calls on party to back ruling coalition

December 11, 2021

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz on Saturday called on members of his Social Democratic party (SPD) to back the country’s new ruling coalition, adding promises made during the election campaign now had to translate into concrete action. Speaking at a virtual convention of the SPD at which the party’s new leadership was elected, Scholz said the new government needed to allay Germans’ fears over globalisation, climate change and digitalisation. “I am counting on you to support this work,” said Scholz, who succeeded Angela Merkel as chancellor on Wednesday. He added that a modern social democratic party had to convey the feeling to the public that things will “end well”, including keeping well-paid industrial jobs in Europe’s top economy.
