“In our view, MPs who speak for the parliamentary group must support the positions that have been decided the left represented,” said Wissler and Schirdewan on Friday of the daily newspaper “nd”. If Wagenknecht can't do that in good conscience, then someone else should talk, the party leaders said.
She called for an end to economic sanctions against Russia and negotiations on the supply of Russian energy Germany. In part, this does not correspond to the party's agreed positions and is causing resentment, explained Wissler and Schirdewan. That shouldn't be repeated.
