DW editor-in-chief Ines Pohl and reporter Jaafar Abdul-Karim speak with Martin Schulz, party leader and candidate for Germany's Social Democratic Party (SPD).
In an exclusive DW interview, Merkel's challenger criticized her campaign motto and lack of leadership. He was also highly critical of Turkish President Erdogan, saying he would not be blackmailed on refugee policy.
The journalists hosting the interviews represent a modern, cosmopolitan Germany: Ines Pohl, DW’s new Editor-in-Chief, and DW presenter Jaafar Abdul-Karim.
Germany's SPD has voted to start formal talks for a new "grand coalition" with Angela Merkel's CDU/CSU. For many, the narrow vote has demonstrated that Schulz still has to prove he's the right person to lead the party.
At last, German Chancellor Angela Merkel can form a new government. Now, in what will be her last and hardest term in office, it remains to be seen what Germany really wants to be, says DW's editor-in-chief, Ines Pohl.
