  • Description

    HERR WILLY BRANDT, 49-YEAR-OLD SOCIAL DEMOCRAT, WAS YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) RE-ELECTED GOVERNING MAYOR OF WEST BERLIN - A POST HE'S HELD SINCE 1957. THE RE-ELECTION FOLLOWED HIS PARTY'S VICTORY IN THE LAST MONTH'S CITY ELECTIONS WHEN SOCIAL DEMOCRATS GAINED 89 SEATS IN THE WEST BERLIN PARLIAMENT, COMPARED TO 41 FOR THE CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATS AND TEN FOR THE FREE DEMOCRATS.

    HERR BRANDT WAS CHOSEN AGAIN AS MAYOR BY 97 VOTES TO 37 WHEN THE NEW PARLIAMENT MET YESTERDAY FOR THE FIRST TIME. HE WILL PRESENT HIS NEW GOVERNMENT, COMPRISING TEN SOCIAL DEMOCRATS AND THREE FREE DEMOCRATS, ON MONDAY, AND PLANS TO MAKE A POLICY STATEMENT ON MARCH 18TH.

    THE SOCIAL DEMOCRATS, THOUGH WINNING A LANDSLIDE VICTORY IN THE ELECTIONS TWO WEEKS AGO, FORMED A COALITION WITH THE FREE DEMOCRATS TO ENSURE EVEN STRONGER BACKING FOR THE NEW GOVERNMENT. THE FREE DEMOCRATS, WHO WERE NOT EVEN REPRESENTED IN THE LAST PARLIAMENT, WILL NOW HEAD THE HEALTH, FINANCE AND JUSTICE DEPARTMENTS.
