German Social Democrat Heiko Maas would be the nation’s new international minister, local media reported Thursday. Within the final authorities he was justice minister.
If confirmed, Maas would substitute one other SPD politician, Sigmar Gabriel, within the position. Gabriel introduced Thursday morning that he won’t be a part of the brand new Cupboard underneath Angela Merkel.
The SPD can have six Cupboard positions because it reprises its position as junior associate to Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union. The SPD management will formally announce the listing on Friday.
