Wowereit looks set to wow Berlin once again

Text size Aa Aa

After 10 years in power, Berlin’s mayor Klaus Wowereit looks set to lead the SPD to victory again in this Sunday’s state elections.
 
Only a year ago many thought he was finished, facing a strong Green challenge, but Klaus Wowereit has bounced back in the polls.
 
Despite Chancellor Angela Merkel offering her support, polls suggest the CDU candidate does not have much of a chance. They are fighting with Greens’ joint national leader Renate Künast for second place.
 
Wowereit may form a coalition with the Greens and provide a model for a future German government, boosting his chances of leading the party into the 2013 general election.
