Sahra Wagenknecht announces withdrawal from the "rise" protest movement
Berlin – Left-wing leader Sahra Wagenknecht wants to withdraw according to a media report from the top of her initiate left-wing collection movement "stand up". "We need a rearrangement to get up," said Wagenknecht from the "Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung" ("FAS"). "The party politicians should take back, this also has consequences for me, they were initially necessary with their experience. But now it is good to give up the responsibility." Wagenknecht had founded the movement together with her husband Oskar Lafontaine for left-wing voters to reach who have turned away from the classical festivals.
"Get up" started in early September and today has around 170,000 supporters. Four weeks after its establishment, the movement had already reported about 100,000 supporters. Unlike political parties, you do not have to pay a contribution and you can easily log on to the internet.
Sahra Wagenknecht remained sick for two months
Wagenknecht told the FAS that the movement "could live better if given to those who still wear it on the base". Former left-wing party leader Lafontaine had emphasized in the establishment of "rising" that they were surprised by the strong influx. In their own party, however, the two encountered a lot of rejection. The leaders of the SPD and the Greens also reacted skeptically.
Wagenknecht now told the newspaper that it would continue to support the movement, for example through public appearances. "But I also have to see what workload I can do. The fact that I was absent for two months due to illness also had to do with the extreme stress of recent years. That's where I have to find a new balance."

The left faction also known misconceptions. "The parties we wanted to address are walled in," she told FAS.

"But the party leaders of the SPD and the left clearly feel so comfortable in the deadlock that they have rejected the opportunity to" get up "with the great response."
Lafontaine had said in February, almost six months after the official start of "getting up," that he could still "lift his breath." "We started very well. But now we are in trouble with the levels because there are organizational problems." Structures of the movement in the countries, cities and communities could not be built overnight. "It takes time."
