The leadership of the German Green Party is to nominate a candidate to succeed Chancellor Angela Merkel in the upcoming elections on April 19, party leader Michael Kellner said on Wednesday.
The party’s board is due to announce which of its two co-chairs – Annalena Baerbock or Robert Habeck – is to lead the Greens in the September 26 federal election, according to a Kellner document seen by dpa.
The candidate must then be officially confirmed at a party summit between June 11 and 13.
The Green Party is on the rise, according to recent public opinion polls, falling just slightly behind Merkel’s conservative Christian Democrats. (Dpa / NAN)
