The German government announced on Saturday that Olaf Schultz, the country’s prime minister, fell to the ground while exercising and his face was bruised as a result of this incident, and he was forced to cancel a number of his meetings for Sunday.
In response to an email asking about the incident, the German government announced that the 65-year-old German chancellor was forced to cancel Sunday’s meetings in the central HESSE region due to a minor sports accident. State elections will be held on October 8. The German government added that Schultz’s meetings next week will not be affected by this incident and will proceed as planned.
For the first time, “Frankfurter Rundschau” newspaper informed about this incident. This newspaper has quoted “Michael Roth”, one of the leading representatives of the center-left Social Democratic Party, about this incident. Michael Roth invited Schultz to his home in Harlingen and was supposed to talk with him about the upcoming elections on Sunday.
Olaf Schultz will serve as Chancellor of Germany from December 2021. Before that, he was the Minister of Economy and Minister of Labor of Germany and was the mayor of Hamburg for a while.
