"We are fighting with the SPD for third place," said the deputy FDP chairman about the election opportunities in the federal election to the "editorial network Germany" (Wednesday editions). He rejected a TV triall of the three candidates for chancellor from the CDU, Greens and SPD and criticized in particular the possible participation of SPD candidate Olaf Scholz as nonsensical.
Scholz would "under no conceivable circumstances become Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany," added the FDP politician. “It's getting pretty silly that he still wants to give the opposite impression,” said Kubicki of Scholz. In the election polls, the FDP recently benefited from the weakness of the Union and is now nine to twelve percent. The SPD ranks between 13 and 15 percent.
