German Greens choose moderate path in bid to reignite election hopes

The Greens, aiming to win the chancellery for the first time at the 26 September federal election, surged ahead of outgoing chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats (CDU) in polls in late April after picking Annalena Baerbock as their candidate to run for chancellor.
