Klaus Wowereit (SPD) im Interview

The Social Democrats lead again to the Berlin Senate. For the federal SPD's vote is a satisfaction. For Sigmar Gabriel has no interest in a strong Wowereit.

The loudest one is cheering on the election of the Socialist Party, as the screens are the miserable result of the FDP Show. Applause and cheerful whistles sounded again and again, see if the supporters of the SPD in the Kulturbrauerei in Prenzlauer Berg, the little yellow bar. Other hand, they are modest and hesitant to applaud, when about one's own result - it is reported - including the loss against the election five years ago.

Although Berlin's SPD is still the strongest party, to lead the Senate again and put the mayor is - the disappointment over this lackluster victory is the Social Democrats in his face.

Emotionally the 1,000 guests of the SPD party react again be played during the live broadcast on ARD potential coalition options. The red-red coalition, which Wowereit led for ten years, is passé. It probably remains the possibility to govern with the Greens and the CDU. While the - much more comfortable - a majority of the seats of the SPD and CDU will appear in the House, sounded whistles, boos and cries of shame.

As much as Wowereit announced to lead exploratory talks with the Christian Democrats, much as he has executed in the weeks before the primary to the Greens, so clearly wants its base, a red-green Senate.
