Mützenich defends Scholz in a Wirecard affair

SPD parliamentary group leader Rolf Mützenich defended Federal Finance Minister Olaf Scholz (SPD) in the Wirecard affair and emphasized his suitability for a candidacy as chancellor.

“The Federal Minister of Finance gave good and comprehensive answers to the legitimate questions of the MPs in the Finance Committee of the German Bundestag. Olaf Scholz wants a quick reform of the financial supervision and has presented concrete plans for this: That is the right way, ”said Mützenich of the“ Redaction network Germany ”.

He hardly knows anyone who does not consider Olaf Scholz to be a good candidate for Chancellor, said the leader of the parliamentary group, who has so far been considered a possible candidate. "In terms of Wirecard, I would like the Federal Minister of Economics to provide similarly convincing answers." Peter Altmaier (CDU) has the duty of supervision for the auditor. "Where is his plan for how such failures can be prevented by auditors in the future," added Mützenich. The SPD faction leader asked the CDU and CSU not to use the affair for party politics. “I expect the Union to do without cheap games. The point is that such a billion dollar fraud can be prevented as far as possible in the future. ” Everyone should participate in this together, he said.

"It shouldn't be about petty party-political terrain gains."
