FifthAccording to a poll, many voters are interested in a potential new party led by left-wing politician Sahra Wagenknecht. When asked “Can you basically imagine voting for a new party founded by Sahra Wagenknecht?” In a survey by the Civey Institute, 30 percent of those questioned said yes or most likely yes. In East Germany it was 49 percent, as “SPIEGEL‘ she reported on Friday. The magazine commissioned the survey. So Civey interviewed 5,002 people.

There has been speculation for months about the possibility of Wagenknecht being incorporated. The former parliamentary group leader is at odds with her party’s leadership and takes positions different from those of the majority of the left on the subject of anti-Russian sanctions and energy policy, among other things. Recently, she herself had publicly considered founding a new party, but she also pointed out the problems. Whether she decided to do so is an open question.
