She does not want to make an election recommendation, but CDU boss Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer speaks about the profile that her successor should bring. The CDU wants to govern, so it’s very important how someone handles responsibility.
Berlin (dpa) – Before the election of the new CDU chief, former party chairman Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer speaks about the demands of the bureau. According to Kramp-Karrenbauer, the future CDU chairman should be able to bear the responsibility.
“The CDU, like almost no other party, has the claim: we want to govern. At the CDU it is therefore very important how someone deals with responsibility ”, said the Defense Minister of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. All three candidates had a “desire for responsibility” and also “the ability to do so”.
The successor of Kramp-Karrenbauer will be elected at a digital party conference this weekend. The Prime Minister of North Rhine-Westphalia, Armin Laschet, former Union party leader Friedrich Merz and foreign politician Norbert Röttgen are available for elections.
Kramp-Karrenbauer still does not want to make an election recommendation, as she told the German news agency: “When it comes to the election of the new party leader, I was and will remain neutral.” There was a fair competition with three very good candidates. “I look forward to working well with the new CDU Group Chairman, who will be elected by the delegates on Saturday.”
