Alexander Schweitzer: The New Face of Rhineland-Palatinate Politics

Alexander Schweitzer, a 50-year-old lawyer, has been elected as the new Minister-President of Rhineland-Palatinate, succeeding Malu Dreyer. Schweitzer, who previously held roles in labor and social affairs, aims to continue the traffic light coalition while implementing his own reforms such as in long-term care.

However, he faces challenges in distancing himself from criticisms of the flood disaster in the Ahr valley to regain voter trust. With a unique stature of 2.06 meters, Schweitzer plans to be a listening and learning Prime Minister, advocating for social democratic values and regional development.

As he embarks on his new role, Schweitzer looks to leave his mark on state politics, maintaining his parliamentary mandate and fostering a closer dialogue with the public.
