German far-left set to head first regional state

The German far-left look set to make history this week in a deal that will lead to them taking their first regional state premiership since the Berlin Wall fell a quarter-century ago. Bodo Ramelow, 58, a member of the Linke, the successor to the former East Germany’s ruling Marxist-Leninist Social Unity Party (SED), will break political taboos by signing a deal that will see him appointed regional prime minister in the state of Thuringia next month. The move is part of a power-sharing deal with the centre-left Social Democrats (SPD) and environmentalist Greens to be signed this week and then formalised in a regional parliamentary vote on December 5.
