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 interview with DW, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, the new leader of Germany's Christian Democrats (CDU), has said that she wants Angela Merkel to see out her remaining three years as chancellor.
Angela Merkel rises to the occasion after her party's disastrous showing in the Hesse state election. Offering to step down as CDU head is a clever way to prepare to bow out altogether, says DW Editor-in-Chief Ines Pohl.
It was billed as a sign of social democratic solidarity in times of rising right-wing populism: The former leader of Germany's SPD has paid a surprise, and controversial, visit to Brazil's jailed ex-President Lula.
The journalists hosting the interviews represent a modern, cosmopolitan Germany: Ines Pohl, DW’s new Editor-in-Chief, and DW presenter Jaafar Abdul-Karim.
