In the Interview: Green Party Member of Parliament Marieluise Beck
Six months ahead of the European elections, Germany's Green Party has formally adopted its manifesto. It plans to demand a unified European asylum law and campaign for taxes on tech giants and Europe's worst polluters.
Fresh from polling as Germany's second strongest party, the Greens have picked two candidates to lead their EU election campaign. Ska Keller and Sven Giegold are already familiar faces in Brussels' corridors of power.
While Merkel's coalition dives in the polls, the Greens have been riding a wave of support. Decades after their rebellious arrival on Germany's political scene, the party is poised to become part of a new establishment.
