The SPD mourns Thomas Oppermann. The Bundestag Vice President died surprisingly. As SPIEGEL learned, he collapsed while working on TV with ZDF and was hospitalized. The cause of death is not yet known. Previously, ntv had reported about it.
“The news of the sudden death of my colleague and comrade Thomas Oppermann fills me with deep sorrow,” wrote Labor Minister Hubertus Heil (SPD) on Twitter. “Thomas has done his work for our country and social democracy with passion and understanding. My thoughts are with his family.”
Oppermann was chairman of the SPD parliamentary group in the Bundestag from 2013 to September 2017. In October of the same year he took over the vice presidency of the German Bundestag.
Before that he was the first parliamentary manager of the SPD parliamentary group. From 1998 to 2003 Oppermann worked as Minister for Science and Culture in the Lower Saxony state government.
It was only at the end of August that he announced that he would no longer run for the Bundestag in the election in September 2021. “After 30 years as a member of the Lower Saxony state parliament and the German Bundestag, now is the right time for me to do something different and undertake new projects,” the SPD politician explained his decision at the time.
