SPD: Lars Klingbeil re-elected Secretary General

2019-12-06T20:32:51.569Z

Lars Klingbeil remains Secretary General of the SPD. The 41-year-old received just under 80 percent of the vote.




The SPD party congress re-elected Lars Klingbeil as secretary-general. 79.93 percent of the delegates voted at the party congress for the Lower Saxony.

Klingbeil has been Secretary-General since the end of 2017. The 41-year-old has significantly co-organized the reorganization of the party after the resignation of the party and parliamentary group leader Andrea Nahles in June.

Klingbeil is a follower of a continuation of the Grand Coalition. His party had voted at the party congress to remain in the GroKo for the time being, but to talk to the Union about new accents in government work. Subsequently, the party executive should decide whether these topics can be implemented in the existing government alliance.

In addition to the office of secretary-general, five deputy posts were also available for election. Serpil Midyatli, head of the SPD in Schleswig-Holstein, scored the best and won 79.8 percent. The Brandenburger Klara Geywitz was elected with 76.8 percent. The Saar-SPD boss Anke Rehlinger won 74.8 percent. Juso CEO Kevin Kühnert received only 70.4 percent - but still more than Labor Minister Hubertus Heil, who came to only 70 percent.
