Since 4 July 2017, Social Democratic politician Manuela Schwesig has taken over the reins of the state government of the Bundesland Mecklenburg-West Pomerania (Mecklenburg-Vorpommern) as successor to Premier Erwin Sellering, who withdrew due to ill health.

Until becoming premier she served as Federal Minister of Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth. She is the first female head of government in the state, and fifth since German reunification. In the latter capacity she leads a coalition with the Christian Democrats.
