The CSU is found in the year, the internal political confusion something minor as the sister party of the CDU. The Congress on 19. January is shaping the party leadership, which is likely to dominate the closed meeting of the CSU in Bavaria, this week. Horst Seehofer, Markus Söder handing over the party chairmanship, then the Union for a Europe-leading candidates flocking from the ranks of the CSU.

Whether the replacement of Seehofer’s consequences for the Federal Cabinet will show; for sure is that no party Chairman of the Grand coalition will be more seats at the Cabinet table. The CSU, however, has at least the advantage, that your new Chairman in the circles of the Prime Minister in government in Berlin, the SPD, the leadership of the group and the party is in a Hand.

The situation remains unclear

The new CDU-Chairman, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer will have on your visit to the CSU closed meeting, however, the difficulties, the conditions in the CDU as a comparatively ordered. Alone the skepticism Wolfgang schäuble’s against the “right of access” to the Chairman to the Chancellor candidacy ruin the view on a clear appearance. Because schäuble’s Intervention is to be understood that the supporters of Friedrich Merz or Jens Spahn have not given up hope, in the next Federal election after her and not after the taste of Angela Merkel. However, in terms of Merz, Merkel and Kramp done-Karrenbauer, what you had to do. To bring Merz to the Cabinet, would have the self-diminution Kramp cart Builder means – Merz could have on your costs as a possible candidate for Chancellor profile.
