Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The majority of Germans consider Olaf Scholz (SPD) to be weak in leadership. That is the result of a political barometer especially for the ZDF summer interview with the Federal Chancellor this Sunday. According to this, only 21 percent of those surveyed say that Scholz is more likely to assert himself on important political issues. 73 percent say the chancellor is unlikely to assert himself.

The interviewees are also critical of the chancellor's communication. 72 percent of those surveyed said that the accusation that Olaf Scholz gave no specific answers to questions in political interviews more often than other politicians was correct. Only 19 percent say the allegation is not true.
