Interview with Christian Lindner, lead candidate of the liberal FDP party
With the 2021 German federal elections, the era of Angela Merkel draws to a close. We want to meet the candidates vying to lead the country after her departure. Christian Lindner currently serves as party head and lead candidate for the FDP. In an interview with DW, he faces questions from editor-in-chief Manuela Kasper-Claridge and presenter Jaafar Abdul-Karim. They want to know: What is his vision for Germany? How would he shape international relations? Would he continue down the path Angela Merkel has led Germany, or steer in another direction?
