SPD Secretary of State nominates Giffey as the best candidate | Free press

Despite the affair about possible plagiarism in her dissertation, Federal Family Minister Franziska Giffey is considered a beacon of hope for the Berlin SPD. Now she has been nominated as the best candidate for the 2021 parliamentary elections.

Berlin (dpa) – The SPD’s Berlin state administrator has nominated Federal Family Minister Franziska Giffey as the best candidate for the 2021 House of Representatives election, the party’s national association announced on Twitter.

Giffey was elected to the state association’s new dual leadership on Saturday along with SPD group leader Raed Saleh. The 42-year-old had declared at the time that he was willing to lead the SPD in the elections. Giffey wants to become the reigning mayor.

During the party conference over the weekend, the entire state administrator was newly elected. Giffey received about 89 percent of the valid votes in the election, Saleh about 69 percent.

Neukölln’s minister of family and former district mayor Michael Müller has already replaced her as president of the state. At the beginning of the year, he announced that he would no longer be running for the post. He wants to run for the Bundestag in the autumn of 2021.

Giffey is considered the bearer of hope for the Berlin SPD. She wanted to ‘take on’ her new role, she promised party congressmen over the weekend. However, the politician is currently emphasizing in her thesis the affair of possible plagiarism.

In the autumn of 2019, the Free University of Berlin (FU) reprimanded her for shortcomings in her work, but did not withdraw her PhD. After widespread criticism of this approach, the FU recently announced a new exam, which should be completed by the end of the college period of the winter semester – ie the end of February. Giffey’s complaint was dropped. Under pressure, Giffey recently announced that she would give up her PhD.
