The re-foundation of her party is progressing. Sahra Wagenknecht expressly does not rule out government responsibility in the future. But she sees the chairmanship in other hands.
Former left-wing politician Sahra Wagenknecht does not want to become chairwoman of her yet-to-be-founded party. “I assume that someone else will be the party chairman because I don’t have the right to do and fix everything in this party now,” she said in the ARD program “Confrontation: Markus Feldenkirchen meets Sahra Wagenknecht” produced by WDR “. Instead, the former left-wing faction leader Amira Mohamed Ali could do that very well. “She also has experience, including in the organizational area, where she is significantly better than me,” said Wagenknecht.
She and nine other MPs announced their departure from the Left Party about two weeks ago. The new “Alliance Sahra Wagenknecht” is planning to found a party and thus also wants to assume government responsibility. “Yes, of course! I would like to see a different policy in our country, one that doesn’t just sit out problems all the time,” replied Wagenknecht to a corresponding question on the show.
