The journalists hosting the interviews represent a modern, cosmopolitan Germany: Ines Pohl, DW’s new Editor-in-Chief, and DW presenter Jaafar Abdul-Karim.
Ines Pohl, the incoming Editor-in-Chief, returned from DW’s Washington, D.C. bureau earlier this year. She was the lead correspondent during last year’s US elections.
Jaafar Abdul-Karim is a prize-winning reporter and presenter (Shabab Talk) for DW’s Arabic language service.
The team’s extensive experience abroad allows it to pose questions DW viewers around the world want to know the answers to. They will go beyond policy issues, to find out what drives, what motivates the candidates.
