Robert Habeck commented on future collaboration with the CDU. In a conversation with the “Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung” he also spoke about Friedrich Merz. 

Can there be a black-green coalition after the next federal election? Vice Chancellor Robert Habeck (54) believes cooperation with the CDU is possible. “Even if we argue with the Union in tough debates in our respective roles as government and opposition, we can still work with the Union in the future,” the Green politician told the “Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung”. 

He also spoke about Friedrich Merz (CDU). According to Habeck, he did not fall into the opposition reflex on the question of foreign policy or support for Ukraine. Instead, he “embodyed Germany’s reason of state in the opposition.” 

The 54-year-old also believes that the tone in the political debate is becoming more conciliatory again. He cites the CDU party conference at the beginning of May as an example. This would have had “a different sound,” also towards his party, “than the CSU party conference or the Ash Wednesday speeches a few months earlier,” he tells the “NOZ.” 

In the interview, Habeck talks about the attacks on SPD and Green election campaigners. “Leading CDU politicians showed their solidarity”. Among other things, SPD MEP Matthias Ecke was attacked and seriously injured while hanging up election posters. The incident happened in Dresden. 

Robert Habeck became a member of the Alliance 90/The Greens party in 2002, as stated on the federal government’s website. He has been Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection and Deputy to the Federal Chancellor since December 8, 2021.

Federal Interior Minister Nancy Faeser (SPD) left an incendiary letter from a Thuringian district administrator on asylum policy unanswered for almost three months. Then a department head spoke up and praised the course of the traffic light effusively. He ignored the problems at the base.

During Corona, refueling cost over 2 euros per liter. Millions of drivers have digested the shock, but the increase in the cost of driving will only really begin in three years. The weakening electric car industry is already rubbing its hands.
