FDP points to double-digit result in state elections
Hildesheim (dpa/lni) – The Lower Saxony FDP is aiming for a double-digit result in the state elections in October. So said state leader Stefan Birkner on Saturday at the party’s state conference in Hildesheim. Birkner reiterated that no new state government could be formed apart from the Liberals. In the 2017 state elections, the FDP won 7.5 percent.
Referring to the Prime Minister of Lower Saxony and his deputy, the party leader said: “Lower Saxony is moderately governed by Stephan Weil and Bernd Althusmann.” The state government failed to develop a common vision for the state. Birkner called for investments in the billions, with €4.3 billion needed for Lower Saxony’s universities alone.
