Matthias Höhn: Left-managing director to resign tomorrow

After considerable conflicts in party headquarters of Left Party, federal manager of party, Matthias Höhn, resigns. As it was out of party circles, Höhn wants to resign his office on Friday. His post will be held as a business leader until election on a party congress planned for next spring.

"I have taken note of fact that Matthias Höhn is resigning," said leftist Bundestag group chief Dietmar Bartsch on evening ARD broadcast report from Berlin. A month ago, re had been first reports that party manager was ahead of retreat.

One central reason for this seems to be a power struggle between party chiefs Katja Tipping and Bernd Riexinger on one hand, as well as group chairmen Bartsch and Sahra wagon servant on or side. Höhn was also campaign leader of Left. The party chiefs Riexinger and tipping were to have criticized him for supporting focus on top-of--class candidate Wagonman and Bartsch in election campaign. In addition, y have been disturbed by fact that he has taken protection of m too little against criticism from ex-party chief Oskar Lafontaine, Chariot-keeper's husband.

Quarrel also about Sahra wagon-servant

There is always controversy not only in party headquarters, but also among members of left in Bundestag, for example on orientation of party in refugee policy. The climate is marked by mutual mistrust. Some left-wing parliamentarians, such as legal policy Halina Wawzyniak, did not take part in Bundestag elections again.

In October, members of newly constituted Left Party group had also argued at a retreat in Potsdam wher party chiefs Riexinger and tipping should also have voting rights in Bundestag Group board, although y were not formally Belong. The Chairman of Bundestag group Sahra wagon-servant threatened to withdraw. In end, MEPs agreed that in future also Riexinger and tipping should have an "outstanding speech" in Bundestag debates, but group chairmen will continue to be first to speak. In dispute, it was also a question of some left-wingers finding a role to be exposed in media.

The Left party lost its status as opposition leader at Bundestag election. This role is expected to be taken over by SPD, provided that a Jamaican coalition of union, FDP and Greens is formed. But even in case of a large coalition, left would no longer be strongest force among opposition parties, but AfD. The strongest opposition party replies in Bundestag to government statements by Chancellor, which gives her a lot of visibility. Now party will be speaking later in debate.

Successor already searched

The 42-year-old federal manager and ex-campaign leader Höhn counts as reformer camp of left and has held his positions since 2012. Since Bundestag election he is also a member of Bundestag. Bartsch said: "I regret his resignation and I hope that he will become a very active member of my group."

First, newspapers of editorial network Germany reported central German newspaper of impending resignation. The left guards against reading that tipping and Riexinger Höhn had pushed for resignation: "The party chairmen have expressly asked Matthias Höhn to continue working with m," it said. According to Central German newspaper, Höhn does not want to be rubbed between camps.

The left-wing politician Jan van Aken disputed speculation that he would take over office of Federal Executive. According to middle German newspaper, left-treasurer Thomas Nord is also in conversation, but not ready. According to information from German press agency, Axel Troost is also a candidate. The party vice is familiar with Hoehn task field.

The Vice-President of Landtag of Saxony-Anhalt, Wulf Gelatine, told central German newspaper that resignation should be an appeal to persons acting to reconsider way of dispute. The green-Federal manager Michael Kellner told Berliner Zeitung, "this is a bitter loss of sense and reason for Left party."
