Warning bells for the Ampel | The Economist – United Kingdom

43

Ironically, the election results might increase the chances of Scholz’s coalition goverment remaining in power, The Economist believes:

“With his junior partners, the liberal FDP and the Greens, getting pasted at the polls, neither they nor Mr Scholz’s SPD have any interest in pulling the Ampel down. And while the surge in support for the AfD worries many Germans, the party’s stronger showing may prove hard to translate into greater power. All other parties still reject the idea of coalition deals with the hard right. … Mr Scholz and his coalition have certainly heard the warnings. The Ampel’s rhetoric on immigration has grown notably tougher lately, and the Green party has trimmed its environmental ambitions.”
