“East Germans are often portrayed as racist naysayers who are unable to look at themselves as the cause of their problems. The history of the GDR is often reduced to the Stasi. The two parties that picked up on these perceptions are DIE LINKE and the AfD, with the latter being far more successful.”
In Leipzig, Die Linke won in percentage of votes for city council, and Die GrÃ¼nen for the European Parliament. Still, the far-right AfD had the most impressive gains, now having more city council seats than the SPD, besides a lawmaker in Brussels.
Marcus Korzer and Martin Biederstedt (GrÃ¼ne) leben in Leipzig und kandidieren fÃ¼r den Stadtrat im Wahlkreis 9, Leipzig-Nordost. Our aim is for our audience to get to meet the candidates and know their political stances better. All questions and answers are provided in German and English.
