Short video clips of the parties are in vogue in election campaigns. The Greens have now published a new spot. Because the postal vote makes the election campaign time more intense.
Berlin – Early decision-makers already have a choice: Voting by letter for the Bundestag election is already possible. Quite a few will even have cast their vote by now. The election campaign continues for the remaining five weeks. And, as is well known, a lot can happen during this time.

A high percentage of postal voters is also expected due to the corona pandemic. The parties and election campaigners must therefore really accelerate now – more votes could be fixed every day. For example, the Greens now explicitly point with a new election campaign clip thereupon. To see: numerous people who are apparently supposed to appear “like you and me”. To hear: music and election campaign slogans.
Greens with a new campaign spot: “Fighting for the climate and short-haul pilots”
The people sing “New departures far and wide” or “Don’t stop”. As expected with the Greens, the climate quickly becomes a topic: “We have to see our earth”, man and woman sing on a bench, while demonstrating children and young people join in: “It’s getting too warm here for life”. Then it gets confusing for a moment: “Fighting for the climate, short-haul pilots and my farm.” The Greens actually wanted to get rid of short-haul flights, didn’t they? The faded-in image gives the resolution: Bees are shown on flowers. So these short-haul pilots!
The election campaign point of good transport links is also mentioned, as are digitization and the Greens’ call for investments. The short video is supposed to make the diversity of society clear, at the same time as addressing the potential voter directly: “There is so much that unites us. Because yes, you are also meant here. ”And then the appearance of the party leaders at the end of the one-minute clip:“ Now give it your all, ”says Robert Habeck,“ live the departure ”, rhymes Chancellor candidate Annalena Baerbock afterwards.
Election campaign for the federal election: First reactions to the new clip of the Greens
Just a few hours after the video was published, Twitter users not only express their enthusiasm for the spot. “I still choose you, but who just made it up?” “Freedom, Liberal, Business Informatics” describes. Another user, who names the FPD and the Young Liberals in the profile, comments: “Seldom seen anything like this scary.” As expected, the parties don’t give each other anything in the election campaign – even if the FDP and the Greens may ultimately have to govern in a coalition.
Satirist Jan Böhmermann tweeted: “Maybe the Greens don’t WANT to be elected ?!” To this, a response from a user: “Rather: Choose us and we’ll stop singing.” But some also think differently about it: “Thought briefly, The Greens would have really done something … I watched the video, but I don’t understand why there is so much to say against it … maybe you see something I don’t see, “someone writes, for example.
The Federal Managing Director of the Greens, Michael Kellner, explained: “We want a new departure for this country and we want to step out of the well-trodden paths of political communication, as our clip shows. We want to do things differently. ”The spot is aimed at the breadth of society.
Postal voting for the Bundestag election: is this form of voting safe?
While some users thank the Greens for the service with information about postal voting, occasional concerns about the security of postal voting emerge in the comments. After Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated claims after the US presidential election, the unfounded fear spilled over into other states. At the beginning of the year, Daniel Hellmann, a research fellow at the Institute for Parliamentary Studies, spoke to me that the fairy tale of electoral fraud on a large scale is unfounded Merkur.de explained.
But of course the Greens are not the only ones campaigning aggressively for postal votes. In the urban area, the majority of the competition also post posters with references to this option. And these days, short clips are commonplace in the online world anyway – even if, as with the SPD, it can end with a retreat. (cibo)
