Björn Seeling writes from the PANKOW district (with Prenzlauer Berg and others):

  • It was a start from third place, in the end a clear victory: The CDU politician Johannes Kraft won a direct mandate in the red-green dominated Pankow in the election to the House of Representatives – and chased away the AfD. The 44-year-old now represents Karow, Buch and part of French Buchholz in the Berlin parliament – practically the outskirts. How he managed to beat the AfD and other topics is discussed by Kraft with our newsletter author in an interview for the “Neighborhood” section. Other newsletter topics this time include:
  • Election margins and no end
  • What should be tackled in the district after the election?
