Diejüngste crisis of Greens comes as an opportunity refore. At end of January, two new presidents will be elected. The incumbents, Realo Cem Özdemir and party left Simone Peter, do not want to go back. Several of successor candidates advertise that y could not be clearly identified as Realooder left, rar y were above two party currents. That sounds like kompromissbereitschaft and harmony.
But in a party that traditionally occupies two head posts with one wing representative each, tipping proportional einunkalkulierbares risk. The Greens could damage a wichtigesAlleinstellungsmerkmal: green-typical intra-partisan democracy.
DieKritik of candidates at Realo-left rate has a true core. DenGrünen has always been difficult to find suitable applicants who meet AllenAnforderungen. According to statutes, a chairmanships is a Fraureserviert, second is traditionally a man. For example, if DieFrau is supported by Left party wing, n man must be a realo. Dasständige balancing of interests even annoys suffering greens.
That's why promising candidate, Robert Habeck, says openly: "I möchteVorsitzender be for whole party, I running independent vonFlügeln." It was "time to end distrust-born balancing of power between wings". Habeck, who has been leading in Schleswig-Holstein since 2012ein Super ministry, is more likely to be attributed to realists in party.
DieFraktionschefin of Greens in Lower Saxony Landtag, Anja Piel, laments in her letter of application "separated tanks with its partly encrusted and not more contemporary structures". The "Most of our members" were much less interested in wings than for y to beteiligtwerden development of programmes and priorities appropriately. " That sounds as if wing proportional innerparteilicheMitsprache.
UndPiels competitor, Bundestag member Annalena Baerbock Brandenburg, says: "Our strength in probing was our invocation of our diversity – with unglaublicherfachlicher substance far from a mere squint at Strömungslogiken".
Three applicants thus unite an assertion: Those who take account of sensitivities of realists and left, who act outmoded and fearful Undverschwendet energy. At a time when even konservativeKonzerne and media houses are occupying chief posts more and more frequently with two people, green pioneers doubt benefits of ir double peaks. An amazing thing.
In 1980s, Greens created ir new leadership deletions of necessity. In its founding phase, party threatened to crack. Self-declared Ökosozialisten like Jutta Ditfurth competed with party rights, which linked environmental protection with Völkischem ideas. KamenPragmatiker as Otto Schily, who wanted to make Greens schonfrüh coalition capable. At that time, party introduced a dreiköpfigesFührungsgremium to find most important currents. The informal distinction was also established in realists and Fundis – i.e. fundamentalists. At latest since 1991, however, when Ditfurth and ir followers left party under protest, this label no longer fits. In same year Schrumpftedas triumvirate to double peak. Today, controversy in content in party is far more lenient. But label Realo has kept itself. and Fundihat changed to linker.
DerZwang to quota was and is exhausting. About 2000, when DieParteilinke Renate Kuenast and Realo Fritz Kuhn had to endure each or in party presidency, or five years afterwards in same constellation in DerBundestagsfraktion. Also outgoing party chiefs Peter and Özdemir have had little to say in difficulties four years. And now Özdemirspolitische career threatens to end abruptly, because as a Realo-man no influential party post is currently open. Neverless, quota, Pragmatischangewendet, has always been an enrichment.
Dennwas party and its leadership sometimes torments, today also contributes to ihreraußerordentlichen stability. In Bundestag election campaign 2017 Auchlinke Greens carried duo Özdemir and Katrin Göring-Eckardt without grumbling. The majority of members had now voted for two realists. That is why party had a much more closed election than 2013.
