In the magazine “mirror” challenge, several Union politicians a greater role for the loser in the previous group’s Chairman, Friedrich Merz. “I wish that Friedrich Merz does an outstanding Position for the CDU,” said the Hamburg-based German Bundestag deputies Christoph Ploß of the magazine. “The positions he represents, you have to play in the party a stronger role.”

the CDU members of the officer Henning Otte said the same thing. The new CDU-Chairman urgently needs to build a bridge to the disappointed Merz-trailers: “For it is not likely to be sufficient to attract Friedrich Merz for individual speech appearances or the Chairman of a party Commission.”

the decision to appoint the former Chairman of the Junge Union, Paul Ziemiak to the Secretary-General, there is therefore a strong criticism in the party.

Ziemiak has no degree and is, for the first Time in the Bundestag.
