Left-wing politician Sahra Wagenknecht continues to think about founding a new party. There is a “huge, empty field” in politics.

Sahra Wagenknecht (Die Linke) is considering founding a new party. “In essence, it’s about the following: We have a situation where there is a huge empty space in the political spectrum,” said Wagenknecht on RTL/ntv’s “Frühstart” program, adding: “Many people say we feel from no longer represent any party.”

The policy of the traffic light coalition is destroying prosperity, and the opposition with the CDU and AfD does not feel that they have been picked up. “Where is a force that credibly stands for peace, for justice, but also for the prosperity of our economy? It’s not there,” says Wagenknecht.

At the same time, the left-wing politician admitted that founding a party was “relatively difficult in Germany”. But she’s not the only one leading the discussion. “I do wish that a lot of people who are still saying that we don’t have an addressee on the ballot paper might find an addressee in the next federal election.” Wagenknecht continues: “It used to be the left and we’ll see how it is goes on.”

Left-wing politician Sahra Wagenknecht is unimpressed by the Ukrainian army’s recent successes and insists on a negotiated solution to the Ukraine war. “Russia will not just withdraw from Ukraine without having exhausted all military cards,” said Wagenknecht on RTL/ntv’s “Frühstart” program, adding: “Russia is a nuclear power. Do we really want to take a chance?”

Of course it could be that the situation now contributes to the fact that the willingness to negotiate on the Russian side grows. The Russian army had announced that it wanted to withdraw from the southern Ukrainian city of Cherson. “I expect from the Western countries that pressure is exerted here, that both sides are willing to talk, that people sit down and that a peace solution is sought and that an armistice is reached as quickly as possible,” said Wagenknecht.
