Merkel's indignation outraged Schulz and SPD

Thursday, September 14th, 2017 | World News

The Chancellor's refusal for another strike exchange with her SPD challenger for a running camera comes as expected. The outrage of the SPD also.

Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) has denied the thrust of her SPD challenger Martin Schulz for a second TV duel and, as expected, provoked indignation at the SPD. "Merkel Merkel," said SPD general secretary Hubertus Heil. "This is evidence of a lack of respect for the citizens and the democratic debate." Merkel denied the debate on the future of education, retirement, care and digitization. Schulz himself insisted on a written reply from the Chancellor.

Schulz had demanded a second direct strike after the TV duel of 3 September. In ZDF, on Tuesday evening, he complained that many points that the citizens were moving were not addressed at all: "That is why I wrote a letter to Merkel today and asked her to make a next duel with me, so that all these points can be discussed. "

  No reply from Merkel
Schulz himself criticized the procedure for the cancellation. On the sidelines of an election campaign in Heppenheim, he said: "I am amazed that I am writing to the Chancellor personally, and the Adenauerhaus comments on this and rejects it." The no had first come from the CDU headquarters. "Angela Merkel liked to participate in a TV duel, and this format has proved itself, and she leaves it."

Schulz said in Heppenheim: "I have still assumed that the Federal Chancellery is not the party center of the CDU, but an institution that serves the country." Obviously, this is not the case. "This overlapping of party interests and government tasks is not possible." He repeated, "I am available, and I expect Mrs. Merkel to answer the letters I address to her myself."

SPD faction leader Thomas Oppermann said that Gerhard Schröder, then SPD chancellor candidate, had won two TV duels, the then US presidential candidate Barack Obama even three. "Merkel dares only one thing, why so sovereign?"

"Leave it there"
Government spokesman Steffen Seibert responded to a journalist's question about the procedures for the cancellation that Merkel had "gladly and convincingly also in this election year placed such a duel, because it appreciates the opportunity to the concentrated debate with the challenger Martin Schulz and because this is an important contribution to the opinion of many citizens ". This format has also proven particularly in addition to citizen question formats. "With this mixture: a duel and many interviews, Townhalls and so on, the Chancellor leaves it."

Seibert had been criticized before the first duel, because he had negotiated as a government spokesman about its modalities.
