Are the Greens going into the race with a male or female candidate?

The decision will be made in less than two weeks.

Update from April 7th, 4:46 pm

: “We want to lead the country into the future.

That is why we are fighting for the historically best green result of all time and the leadership of the next federal government ”: Greens Managing Director Michael Kellner has once again underlined the goal of his party: It should be the Chancellery.

The Greens achieved their best result so far in a federal election in 2009 with 10.7 percent, in the last election in 2017 they only got 8.9 percent.

In the polls, however, they are currently the second strongest force behind the Union - at over 20 percent.

Accordingly, the Greens now want to name a chancellor candidate for the first time in their history - even if Annalena Baerbock and Robert Habeck still want to appear as a top duo in the election campaign.

In the past few weeks, the two have repeatedly confirmed that they want to clarify the K question among themselves first.

Poll: A majority is in favor of Habeck as a candidate for chancellor - but there is a trend

The sympathies of the entire electorate are more towards Habeck.

In a Civey survey commissioned by

Spiegel

in March, 33 percent thought he was the more suitable candidate for Chancellor, and only 23 percent were in favor of Baerbock.

However, the trend is moving continuously towards Baerbock.

The preferences are almost evenly distributed among the Greens supporters: 41 percent are for Habeck, 40 percent for Baerbock.

For the 51-year-old Habeck, in addition to the sympathy values, it is mentioned that he has already gained government experience as Minister of Agriculture and Deputy Prime Minister of Schleswig-Holstein.

The 40-year-old Baerbock, however, is considered by some observers to be stronger in terms of content *.

On the question of whether gender plays a role in the candidacy for chancellor, Habeck said in mid-March on the ARD program “Anne Will”: “If Annalena Baerbock, as a woman, would say, I'll do it because I'm a woman - and women have them the first access right - then she has it, of course.

But neither Annalena nor I argue that way. "

Baerbock or Habeck?
