Hesse: After the death of the incumbent: Womelsdorf elected district administrator

Marburg (dpa / lhe) - Jens Womelsdorf is the new district administrator of the Marburg-Biedenkopf district. The 42-year-old won 52.13 percent of the votes in Sunday's election, beating his competitor Marian Zachow from the CDU, who received 47.87 percent. This emerges from the election results published by the district on the Internet in the evening. Womelsdorf succeeds Kirsten Fründt (SPD), who died in January at the age of 54 as a result of cancer. At that time, the social democrat was in her second term as district administrator in the central Hessian district.

A total of seven candidates had applied to succeed Fründt. However, the other five applicants did not get enough votes in the first ballot to advance. Zachow received 38.3 percent of the votes two weeks ago, Womelsdorf 30.8 percent.

Around 245,200 people live in 22 towns and communities in the Marburg-Biedenkopf district. The largest municipality in the region is the university town of Marburg.
