Berlin Baden-Württemberg has rejected considerations regarding a possible postponement of the state elections in March. “No, there are currently no such considerations in Baden-Württemberg,” said Rudi Hoogvliet, government spokesman in Baden-Württemberg, the Handelsblatt.

In Baden-Württemberg, but also in Rhineland-Palatinate, a new state parliament is to be elected on March 14th. Thuringia announced on Thursday that the state elections planned for April 25 would be postponed to a later date in the year due to the high number of corona infections. The elections are now to take place at the same time as the general election on September 26th.

The state elections in Baden-Württemberg and Rhineland-Palatinate are regular elections, unlike in Thuringia. There, the left, CDU, SPD and Greens agreed on early elections after the government crisis last year. Bodo Ramelow (Left) is currently in power there in a red-red-green minority government.

The election date in Baden-Württemberg has long been fixed. There the Greens rule together with the Union, the head of government is the 72-year-old Green politician Winfried Kretschmann.
