Germany: Schulz steps down as SPD leader with immediate effect

Martin Schulz announced his official resignation as party leader of the SPD in Berlin on Tuesday. Schulz recommended Andrea Nahles as his successor, who was unanimously nominated by the SPD board. She is set be approved by the party congress on April 22 at a conference in Wiesbaden. Schulz said that his decision will hopefully bring «the personnel debate to an end» and will allow SPD to... Еще concentrate on the government coalition reached last week with the conservatives. On Friday, Schulz abandoned his plan to become the country's foreign minister in a new coalition government with Chancellor Angela Merkel's CDU.
