In the case of the SPD and the Greens, the delegates voted in favor of the coalition agreement with a very large majority.
In Bremen, a three-party coalition of the SPD, the Greens and the Left Party has governed under Mayor Andreas Bovenschulte (SPD) since 2019. If the party conference of the Left Party also agrees to the coalition agreement on Sunday, Bovenschulte will stand for re-election as President of the Bremen Senate on Wednesday. According to the constitution, the other senators must then also be elected by the state parliament in a separate ballot.
In addition to Bovenschulte as Senate President, Prime Minister and Senator for Culture, the SPD has four senators. These should be the former Schleswig-Holstein member of the state parliament Özlem Ünsal for the construction sector, the former science and justice senator Claudia Schilling for social affairs, labor and justice, incumbent Sascha Aulepp for children and education and incumbent Ulrich Mäurer for internal affairs and sport.
The Greens and the Left each have two senators. For the Greens, parliamentary group leader Björn Fecker is to move into the new government as finance senator and Kathrin Moosdorf as senator for climate, environment and science. Economics Senator Kristina Vogt and Senator Claudia Bernhard, who is responsible for health, care, women, equal rights and consumer protection, should remain in office on the left.
The SPD emerged as the clear winner from the May 14 elections and then began negotiations with the Greens and the Left about a new edition of this alliance.
