Chaos grips the tripartite coalition of the German government
“Let’s stay united!”, Were the words with which he ended German Chancellor Olaf Scholz his speech to the nation at the end of the year. And although he was referring in the foreground to the German people, given the economic and political challenges they face, there was also in that call a veiled message to the partners of the government coalition, who have not yet served a month in office and it is already showing obvious signs of disagreement and lack of coordination. There is not a single topical issue where all three parties hold the same position. The green ministers of Foreign, Economy and Environment, Annalena Baerbock, Robert Habeck y Steffi Lemke, are outraged by the European Commission’s plan to label nuclear power and gas as sustainable. Chancellor Scholz, a Social Democrat, has limited himself to guaranteeing that he will remain faithful to the elimination of German nuclear energy, with the closure of the last three plants in December 2022, while one of his co-religionists, Ralf Stegner, set the networks on fire scial by stating on Twitter that nuclear power supporters “in terms of content and tone, are not inferior to vaccination opponents, coronavirus deniers and the far right.”

The Greens make climate a priority in the German G-7 presidency
Germany enters in 2022 at the helm of the rotating presidency of the G-7, the first great global challenge for the Social Democratic Chancellor Olaf Scholz and his tripartite, less than a month after they came to power. Russia will remain outside the forum of the seven powers (Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Italy, the United States, Japan and Canada), as has been the case since 2014, following the annexation of Crimea. Scholz has made it clear that a return to the G-8 format, G-7 plus Russia, “not on the agenda”. It has also been repeated these days by its Foreign Minister, the green Annalena Baerbock. Not only because the reason for the exclusion is still valid, but also because of the maximum tension between Moscow, Washington and the EU as a whole, who threaten to “respond forcefully” if Russia annexes more Ukrainian territory.
Pedro Rodríguez: Ukraine, Biden and the Capitol
