After the successful conclusion of the coalition negotiations, five Green ministers in the traffic light government and almost a doubling of their Bundestag mandates, the Alliance Greens can now help shape politics from within the government. After 16 years in the opposition, they are highly motivated to lead the country out of the crisis caused by the pandemic with sustainable and climate-friendly policies. In this situation, which is comfortable for the party, they meet digitally for their 47th federal delegate conference under the motto “Roots for the future”. This party conference will also take place in a hybrid form due to the corona.
The most important items on the agenda are the election of a new national board, the passing of the old one and the debate on the current political situation. In the case of the Greens, the separation of office and mandate applies to parliamentary group leaders and those who hold government offices. Therefore, among other things, the still federal chairmen – Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock and Vice Chancellor and Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection Robert Habeck – have to resign as party leaders. The previous deputy federal chairwoman and women’s policy spokeswoman, Ricarda Lang, and foreign policy spokesman Omid Nouripour are running as the successor team.
The special broadcast from the Berlin Velodrom begins on Friday, January 28 at 5 p.m. and ends around 9 p.m. On Saturday, January 29, the Bonn political broadcaster will report on the Greens meeting from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The highlights of the party congress are the speeches by the outgoing party chairmen on Friday at around 6 p.m. and the elections for the new Green Party leaders, which are scheduled for Saturday at 2.30 p.m.
At the beginning of the party conference broadcast, the outgoing political Greens manager speaks out Michael Waiter, who won a Bundestag mandate in autumn and has become Parliamentary State Secretary in the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection, on the state of the party. He is a guest Marlon Amoyal, which leads through the live broadcasts on both days. The political scientist takes care of political analyses Prof. Sabine Kropp from the Free University of Berlin and Valerie Hoehne from the mirror. The party congress events are commented and summarized by a phoenix reporter Jeanette Klag.
