Merkel coalition threatened by new leftist leaders

Critics of the coalition with Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservatives won a vote for the leadership of Germany’s Social Democrats (SPD) on Saturday. The SPD said Norbert Walter-Borjans and Saskia Esken, who ran on a joint ticket, won 53.06% of the vote by members. They are hoping to renegotiate the coalition deal to focus more on social justice, investment and climate policies.

SPD working hard to become even more irrelevant, focusing on social justice and all. They will still pass the 5% in the next election, but if they keep doubling down they won't for much longer.

Is it just me or is this comment a bit off “We want to rule Germany well. We have created a foundation for this between the conservatives and the SPD. Nothing has changed in this foundation,” party spokesman Paul Ziemiak said. They want to "RULE" Germany!?! Sound like something an authoritative government would say.
