In this first interview we will be talking to Sahra Wagenknecht, deputy chairperson and candidate for the Left Party. Posing the questions: Editor-in-chief Ines Pohl, and reporter Jaafar Abdul-Karim.
Left Party delegates have voted by a large majority to back the proposal by leaders Katja Kipping and Bernd Riexinger. It was a setback for the party's most recognizable face and voice, Sahra Wagenknecht.
The journalists hosting the interviews represent a modern, cosmopolitan Germany: Ines Pohl, DW’s new Editor-in-Chief, and DW presenter Jaafar Abdul-Karim.
Prominent leftist politician Sahra Wagenknecht has launched a cross-party movement in Germany, but faces skepticism. She says a "crisis of democracy" has emerged because prosperity is no longer being shared among voters.
The Left Party's top candidate in the upcoming parliamentary elections, had nothing good to say about other German parties in a DW interview. But she says she would be willing to join a coalition government.
