days want russia to decision on whether to stay in the coalition or not. and after the ballot all to buoyancy had this to say about the future of the party . once a sip of votes. that's does he and we are aware that this is not a question of victory or defeat rather it's a question of keeping this great social democratic party together. bringing it closer together where it's already splitting a little apart. this is not just a lot of fun but this is a big challenge one that applies to us internally but it also applies to different groups of people who have always had a bone with this party we want to revive these bonds and work together. or not defeat the minds of. i'm joined by our political correspondent simon young simon thanks for coming in this announcement is quite a shock tell us a little bit more about these 2 candidates on these 2 later new late is and why it was such a shock yes it is

8:04 pm
years i mean this is the 3rd time in 2 years we've saying late is elected these 2 likely to affect change in the party well i think they really will i mean 1st of all there is this question about the future as i say of a national governor. and they say they want to renegotiate a coalition agreement of they have with merkel's conservatives were put in a lot more social democrat policies and for instance i have a big program of public investment and raise the minimum wage and various other things if they don't get that then they pull out and that will have all sorts of consequences for the national government as the future of the social democrat party is a say they've been languishing in the polls doing very badly in election after election in recent years and the. party is looking for some way to regenerate itself obviously the membership or at least he voted for these 2 they can be the ones to create that train and the you know they've been quick to say that they're going to
8:05 pm
look at all all facets they don't going to quickly pull out of the coalition if they decide to in fact stay in the grand coalition do you think they'll be able to effect any change on the current government well i mean of course it's not up to these 2 to make that decision directly they'll be another delegate conference next weekend when their appointment will be confirmed and then there will be sort of a number of decisions taken at strategic level among them whether to stay in the national coalition or not and where to position the party going forward but these 2 as i say have left wing policies and obviously some people that'll be fresh impetus of red blood for the s.p.d. going for with simon thanks very much for the analysis. and another german party the far right alternative for germany has also elected new leaders at a party conference in the city of. the pair include tino crapolla a 44 year old house painter turned politician from eastern germany same as
