FDP for the second term of office of Federal President Steinmeier
BERLIN (AFP) – The FDP is for a second term of office for Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier. “The parliamentary groups of the Free Democrats in the federal and state levels today spoke out in favor of supporting Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier in his candidacy for a second term,” said FDP leader Christian Lindner on Wednesday evening in Berlin. Steinmeier is “an outstanding personality” and “in times of social polarization did a lot for the cohesion in our country”, emphasized Lindner. The FDP sees it “with sympathy and great respect” that the Federal President is ready for another term of office. Steinmeier has been Federal President since 2017. The next election for the office will take place in February next year. The former SPD foreign minister had already announced at the end of May that he wanted to apply for a second term.
