A year, party Chairman: Nahles as a Trümmerfrau of the SPD

After a rough Start it was the first not be better: One year, Andrea Nahles, as SPD Chairman in office. The party of peace, you came last but a bit closer.

in early March, could see the SPD for your Boss again in the "Today Show". "There's no beer on Hawaii", she sang at the political ash Wednesday and laughed off. Some in the SPD find embarrassing. So embarrassing, that you could get rid of Nahles as a party leader.

Fair this is not, as Nahles has always been so. And on the other, they tried, as a Trümmerfrau of the SPD straight away, what did the men in front of her even better.

goal: renewal in the government

"My Name is Andrea Nahles. I am 47 years old and live with my daughter Ella in the Eifel." So almost humble Nahles asked a year ago, in her candidate's speech to the confidence of their orientation, loose, torn party.

Martin Schulz, the bearer of hope, had lost the Federal election and was replaced as party leader. Nahles wanted the Job, she knew, but the reservations about. She also knew that she was perceived as a former Minister and current group leader of many as a part of the problem. And promised that one could renew with a party in the government: "This is the proof I'm going to compete tomorrow!"

22.04.2018 was Nahles to the SPD-Chairman elected

distrust from the beginning

However, many delegates to the party Congress in Wiesbaden trusted her the fresh start in fact. More than a quarter voted for an unknown against a candidate - is a vote of censure.

And the first was nothing better. The new Federal government was prone to jamming, because the CDU and the CSU fought incessantly. To own error. Nahles did not go through, that the controversial constitutional protection chief Hans-Georg Maaßen fired, but to the Secretary of state, way promoted. In the case of the Bavaria-election, the SPD took not even ten percent. In Hesse, it was neck and neck with the Greens at just under 20 percent.

The party Left integrated

had to work but the government has now begun: Many of the laws were first SPD-goods. Nahles was within the party of the sad sacks surrounded, for example, in the case of the party youth.

Whether the government Bridge, part-time, parity, or the social labour market decide, "of the Jusos always comes: it is not enough to get out of the Grand coalition in the case of any conflict we have with the coalition partners," she cried at the debate camp in December.

On the way to the party of peace she has come since then. The SPD has discussed their ideas on the "Modern state". The first result in the middle of February: the decision to Reform the welfare state, according to the Motto: "Hartz IV is behind us".

A success, because it succeeded Nahles, the party Left. Kevin Kühnert, Juso-chief, for example, found that the SPD had shown "how easy and fun it can be to work politically, if you are politically to announce what".

is still under 20 percent

Nevertheless, some problems Nahles't get rid of. Ex-party leader Sigmar Gabriel and his supporters about saws on to your chair, and still cancer the SPD in polls, well below 20 percent.

the outcome of the elections in Europe and Bremen at the end of may, much will depend therefore. For the SPD and for Nahles personally.
