According to a representative survey by INSA for BILD, 55 percent of Germans consider Olaf Scholz (64, SPD) to be overwhelmed with his position as chancellor.

Scholz was recently criticized after pushing through a Chinese stake in a terminal in the port of Hamburg against all resistance from his traffic light coalition.

Next week the Chancellor will travel to China, where he will meet the sole ruler Xi Jinping (69) – making Scholz the first head of government from the West to go to China since the outbreak of the corona pandemic. Scholz is sending “the wrong signal,” criticized Manfred Weber (50), head of the conservative EPP group in the EU Parliament, to BILD.

The majority of INSA respondents is also against Chinese state-owned companies entering German companies.
