But after an acrimonious campaign battle against rival Markus Söder, Laschet’s priority will be to re-unite his party. The Greens, meanwhile, have chosen co-leader Annalena Baerbock as their challenger for the chancellorship. She has no experience in government. But she’s promising a radical rethink in German politics, focusing on issues like global warming.
