German Minister of Health Jens Spahn, whose popularity among the population has grown regardless of the pandemic, is considering the possibility of fighting for the position of German Chancellor in September, according to Bild.
In September 2021, elections for the Bundestag will be held in Germany.
It is known that Chancellor Angela Merkel will not run for this position.
A congress of German conservatives, the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), will be held in January, at which a new party leader will be elected, who will also become a candidate for German chancellor.
According to reports by Bild and Spiegel, the Minister of Health has been actively talking to party representatives about his political chances in recent weeks.
Earlier, Span supported the candidacy of Armin Lachet for the position of the head of the CDU.
However, according to the German media, although the Minister of Health, Jens Spahn, can no longer participate in the fight for the position of party leader, he is considering a candidacy for the position of chancellor.
According to the German newspaper, Span is considering this possibility, even if Lachet is elected party president.
Earlier, a survey by the Bild and Kantar Center, published in late December, showed that more than 52 percent of respondents said they would like Span to have the greatest possible influence on politics in 2021.
