Big applause for the SPD land Chairman Michael Müller, at the beginning of the party rally, took place on Saturday with key city policy issues. It is, for example, the question of whether teachers, civil servants or large real estate corporations should be expropriated in Berlin. The police act is up for discussion, but also administrative reform.
And right at the beginning of the question: How the SPD-landesverband for the European elections is at the end of may? "It's us, of course, a good election result," said Miller in his opening speech. But first and foremost it is to fight against the "nationalists, propagandists, and splitters", the Parliament wanted in the EU. In this sense, it was quite a fateful choice. The SPD chief was optimistic and combative. The social Democrats have for their positions on the European elections, "many allies in all Milieus, and generations".
"You're the Popstar"
especially in the young Generation. Many topics are difficult to cope with. There are no easy answers. "But we must not take the easy, populist way." Whether he referred to this admonition on the afternoon pending decision on a petition for the "expropriation of Deutsche Wohnen & Co", Müller.
But his final sentence: "The SPD is and remains a party of progress, which believes in a good future for all of us," came over well. And as he thanked me, then at the other young socialists for their "great commitment" in the preparation of the EU election campaign in Berlin, everything was good. Anyway, to the advice of the sometimes-contentious applications. As the conference Manager Karin Halsch said Comrade Müller after his speech: "You're our pop star", found in the delegates, but rather funny.

In a Resolution on the European elections on may 26. In may, it was decided on Saturday, said: "We stand as one of the Berlin SPD in the European elections for the interests of the employees. Persistent, reliable, and credible.“ With Gaby Bischoff the country-the SPD have a "high-profile trade unionist and convinced fighter for stronger workers 'rights in Europe" as the top-candidate of the national Association.
