The previous Finance Minister and Vice-Chancellor Olaf Scholz is expected to be elected Chancellor in the Bundestag next Wednesday. This was announced by the parliamentary administration.
The heads of the traffic light parties have already agreed on a coalition agreement, but the party base has yet to approve the agreement. The SPD and FDP hold party conferences on the weekend, and the Greens are running a ballot among members, the result of which is expected next Monday.
Only then can Scholz be elected as the successor to Angela Merkel (CDU), whose 16-year term of office will end next week and which will be adopted today with a tattoo by the Bundeswehr
