Who will be Berlin’s next mayor?

In this opinion piece published on EXBERLINER, Konrad Werner reflects on the upcoming Berlin mayoral elections. Bundled up with several other pressing questions - as German citizens residing in Berlin for more than 3 months are required to cast 6 different preferences, Werner's piece suggests that the Mayoral vote is especially interrelated with, and possibly obscured, by the Referendum on the socialisation of big housing companies. In addition to providing an interesting snapshot of the current local political landscape, the article is thought-provoking as it states that the two questions are closely connected, and that the housing question, and the undeniable housing crisis, demand centre stage in the September 2021 elections.
