Déi Gréng want to become the pivotal player for the next government coalition
Déi Gréng (Green Party) wants to become the pivotal party after the next elections for any government coalition.
At the New Year event hosted on Tuesday evening, the party took stock of their first time in government and argued that “green works”.
The influence of Déi Gréng could be seen in the area of mobility, environment and justice. The reform of the law on divorce is underway and scheduled to be voted on this year, just as the introduction of the family judge.
Co-chair of the party Françoise Folmer also said that the tram was only part of the concept of mobility, and pointed out that the road network would also be extended, as part of a more intelligent mobility.
The Greens had scored well in the October 2017 local elections, and was therefore optimistic for the upcoming parliamentary elections in October later this year: “the results show that on the whole, our ideas have broad support”, said Folmer in an interview with RTL.
Christian Kmiotek, the other party co-chair, added that until recently, the CSV used to be able to choose its coalition partner between the LSAP and DP, but that “now there is a third option”. The fourth option would be the continuance of the Gambia coalition (DP-LSAP-Déi Gréng).
The party will present its election manifesto on 30 June and select its candidates in July.
