The present justice minister is slated to exchange Sigmar Gabriel within the high-profile function.

German Social Democrat Heiko Maas would be the nation’s new overseas minister, local media reported Thursday. Within the final authorities he was justice minister.

If confirmed, Maas would exchange one other SPD politician, Sigmar Gabriel, within the function. Gabriel introduced Thursday morning that he is not going to be a part of the brand new Cupboard below Angela Merkel.

The SPD can have six Cupboard positions because it reprises its function as junior associate to Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union. The SPD management will formally announce the record on Friday.
