Left-wing politician Sahra Wagenknecht wants to decide on founding a party by the end of the year. Wagenknecht’s rejection of another candidacy for the left had fueled new speculation about a split in the party.
Left-wing member of the Bundestag Sahra Wagenknecht has until the end of the year to decide whether to found her own party. Wagenknecht had rejected another candidacy for the left. Opposite the news portal ZDFheute.de she said:
“By the end of the year it must be clear what will happen next.”
The decision whether to found a party or not will be made “within the next nine months”. The question of their health powers is also part of their weighing process. To this Wagenknecht:
“As a one-woman show, I can’t do that.”
Wagenknecht’s rejection of another candidacy for the left had fueled new speculation about a split in the party. The politician further said:
“Founding a party depends on prerequisites, including those of a legal nature. You have to set up structures. The expectation that you could – even if you had decided – just launch a party like this from one week to the next, that would be doomed to failure .”
Wagenknecht has also made headlines in recent weeks with a “Manifesto for Peace” initiated together with women’s rights activist Alice Schwarzer. The “Manifesto” was followed by a Berlin demonstration under the motto “Uprising for Peace”.
Wagenknecht speaks out against arms deliveries to Ukraine and for negotiations with Russia. A possible new party, explained Wagenknecht, should work for “peace, freedom, social justice”.

By blocking RT, the EU aims to silence a critical, non-pro-Western source of information. And not only with regard to the Ukraine war. Access to our website has been made more difficult, several social media have blocked our accounts. It is now up to all of us whether journalism beyond mainstream narratives can continue to be pursued in Germany and the EU. If you like our articles, feel free to share them wherever you are active. It’s possible because the EU hasn’t banned our work or reading and sharing our articles.
