In the union struggle for the Q question, the nodes seemed to shift in favor of Soder. But now Lacet continues to attack again. Can the CDU leader trust his party? For whom in this power struggle?
The front row at the union is no longer clear, the splits are deep and run right through the CDU. Eventually, support within Lacet’s own teams also seemed to crumble. The CDU Executive Committee is currently reconvening.
The CSU, on the other hand – at least externally – is unanimously behind Soder. But the younger sister will need the support of the larger and more powerful sections of the CDU to push her candidate. Q. Who established themselves in the struggle for the question – an overview:
Federal Prime Ministers
There are seven federal prime ministers, two Soder and Lacet. Of the remaining five, three have spoken more or less clearly in favor of Soder: Rainer Hasseloff, Tobias Hans – and Michael Gretchmer recently expressed their preference for the CSU chairman. Volker Poofier and Daniel Gunther, on the other hand, belong to the Lacet Camp.
A week ago, Hazeloff and Gretchmer were elected members of the CDU Presidium, which had a majority in favor of Lacet.
Presidium and Committee of the CDU
That is the leadership of the CDU. Party President, General Secretary, Vice Presidents, Seven other members elected by the Federal Party Congress, Federal President, President of the Bundestock, Parliamentary Committee Chairmen (Bundestock and the European Parliament) and CDU Minister-Leaders. The Federal Executive Committee consists of 26 members elected by the Party Congress and leaders of regional associations and associations such as the Jung Union. With this, the party wants to show its full breadth.
A week ago, the Presidium and the Board of Directors voted overwhelmingly in favor of Lacet. However, no formal decision has been made. Meanwhile, individual members are distancing themselves from their party leader, such as Hasseloff. Heavyweights such as Volkswagen Pfier of Hesse or Wolfgang Schuble, president of the Bundestag, are still clearly behind Lashett. Federal Agriculture Minister and CDU federal vice president Julia Klugner and health minister and party vice president Jens Spann campaigned for Lashett, as did Mike Mohring of Thuringia.
CDU / CSU Parliamentary Committee
The CDU / CSU Parliamentary Committee is an organization in which the two sister parties sit together. A memorable meeting took place on Tuesday a week ago. CSU boss Soder throws a picture of the mood on the parliamentary committee – got it as requested. Whether CSU simply went to a well-prepared meeting or whether the opinion of approximately 245 MPs is actually in favor of Soder, as announced later, cannot be objectively assessed.
However, it is certain that Soder has many supporters among the CDU MPs because they believe that he will have a better chance of re-election with the candidate for President Soder. Soder is likely to win a war vote on the union candidate for president in the parliamentary committee. The situation could happen on Tuesday, and supporters of such an approach are currently collecting signatures. Warning voices such as parliamentary evils Thorston Free and Carsten Linman (both CDU) warn of a split in the union.
Both Lacet and other CDU top politicians have already refused to make a decision – on the one hand, many members of the Bundestock are leaving the Bundestock. Lacet, on the other hand, pointed out that there are many candidates for the Bundestag who do not even belong to the current parliamentary committee.
CDU Regional Associations
CDU has 17 regional associations. Neither of the two applicants has the same image. The situation is spreading within regional associations. Top politicians from several state associations, such as Bremen, Shelswick-Holstein, Hessey and North Rhine-Westphalia (Lacet’s House Association), spoke in support of the CDU boss, but the more you listen to the grassroots, the more pro-Soder voices will be heard. So most recently in Lower Saxony.
Soder receives great sympathy in the East German regional associations of Thuringia, Saxony-Anhalt and McLenberg-Western Pomerania or in the city-states of Berlin and Hamburg. With the exception of Hamburg, there are still state elections to be held this year. You expect more success here with Soder than your own party leader.
CDU and CSU District Presidents
Christian Baldoff, a CDU politician from the Rhineland-Palatinate, put forward the proposal on Saturday: not the parliamentary committee, not the board, but the 325 district leaders of the CDU and CSU to discuss the candidate. The idea behind this is: votes should get the mood at the grassroots level – it should be more inclined to soda.
Sven Schulz, state president of CDU Saxony-Anholt, called on all CDU and CSU district leaders to come together. “They form the basis,” he said Deutschlandfunk. In fact, there has been little response to this project so far.
CDA Labor Division
With the working class of the CDU, the matter is clear. The CDA has already clearly established itself several times. “Armin Lacet is the right candidate for union president because he embodies the politics and balance of the center. You can trust him, he stands by his word. It’s absolutely not important in politics,” quoted CIDA boss Carl-Joseph Laman from “Built in Zondak”. This is not surprising: after all, Laman is Minister of Social Affairs in Lacet’s Cabinet in North Rhine-Westphalia.
However, in an interview with “Handelsplot”, CDA Vice Christian Bumler brought up a referee play. Bundestag chairman Schuble, Hesse’s Prime Minister Bofier and former Bavarian Prime Minister Edmund Steiper and former Union Finance Minister Theo Weilkel may be considered as mediators. He also proposed a new system. In the “Union Germany Council”, representatives of both parties elected by the party congress must nominate a candidate for the presidency in the future and determine the plan. CDA members often hand over ministries for labor or social affairs in EU-led governments.
Middle Class Parliamentary Committee
Christian von Staten, chairman of the middle-class parliamentary committee in the Union Territory, has shown himself to be one of the most active recruits for Soder in the power struggle. “The CDU district associations from the North Sea to Lake Constance in the East want him as a candidate for president,” he told the Rhine Post last.
He also collected about 70 signatures from CDU members who are candidates for CSU leader Soder. In terms of numbers, the middle class parliamentary committee is a power in the parliamentary committee. According to the union, more than 60 percent of parliamentary committees are involved. In the past, the parliamentary committee has repeatedly faced Merkel’s course.
Ultimately, it depends on them in the street election campaign: Jung Union (JU)’s commitment to the candidate then contributes significantly to the success of the campaign. The JU traditionally represents a more conservative trend than the parent party. But the matter remains complicated. In a poll on the post of CDU chairman, members of the Jung Union voted against Lacet – and recommended Friedrich Mers. Tillman Kuben, president of the Jung Union, spoke in support of Lacet after the CDU Presidium. Meanwhile Mers has spoken out against Soder.
However, from Sunday’s vote, the point is clear: 14 out of 18 heads of state voted for Soder. Three people voted. Only the NRW-JU was loyal to Lacette. Despite having more than a quarter of its members in the JU Federal Union in North Rhine-Westphalia – with its clear stance on Sunday evening soda, the Jung Union greatly weakened Lacet’s position.
Jung Union President Tillman Kuban said, “We will win a lot with both candidates for president.”
Daily Headlines 10:45 pm, April 18, 2021
Annette Whitman-Mouse, president of the Women’s Association (FU), spoke out in support of Lacette. He belongs to the CDU Presidium. “Survey values are volatile, you can’t build them firmly, it depends on firm policies and beliefs,” Whitman-Mouse said of Sode. The Women’s Association includes all female members of the CDU in Germany (approximately 155,000), if they do not. However, neither Lacet nor Soder had joint EF votes.
Former Prime Minister of the Rhineland-Palatinate Bernhard Vogel (CDU) speaks in support of Lacette. “I’m looking forward to Armin Lashett’s candidacy,” he told the Rainbows. And inside Deutschlandfunk He warned: “If we do not pay attention to the elected institutions, we will endanger the stability of our representative democracy.”
Former Union Education Minister Annette Shawn and Chancellor Angela Merkel (both CDU) revealed this in a less secretive way in “Built in Zondak”: she wanted Lacet to become federal president. Because: “The truth is, CSU presidential candidates have always been an inspiration to SPD principals.” Frederick Mers, Lacet’s former candidate for the CDU party leadership, also spoke in support of Lacet. His political comeback should be a success in the fall: he returned to Bundestag. He could potentially target a position in the Lazette cabinet.
And the Chancellor?
Angela Merkel, longtime CDU boss, multiple candidate for president and 16-year-old president says of the union power struggle: nothing. Except she didn’t want to interfere. “I wanted to, I wanted to, I would stay away from it.”
