German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has sensitive issues
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has a tricky problem: he can’t find… a woman.
It is not about the personal life of the German head of government, but exclusively about his work: After the alleged resignation of the current German Defense Minister Christina Lambrecht, the Bundescancellor would like to see only a representative of the beautiful half of the humanity in this post.
And with this, Scholz had a hard time: in all of Germany, he has not yet found a woman politician worthy of this position.
At the start of his term, Scholz publicly promised that at least half of his cabinet ministers would be women.
German Parliament (Bundestag) Vice President Wolfgang Kubicki said the chancellor should focus on the professional skills of ministerial candidates, and not on their gender.
The current head of the German Defense Ministry, Christina Lambrecht, will resign in the coming days. She is often criticized for the terrible state of the equipment of the German troops; She was the subject of separate disparaging criticism for video greetings in the New Year 2023, in which her words sounded calm and those that could be made out had nothing to do with the work of the Defense Ministry.
