The offspring of the CDU and CSU will come together in Fulda on Friday for Germany Day. The eastern associations of the Junge Union focus in particular on energy policy issues. State head Anna Kreye from Saxony-Anhalt will be there.
Magdeburg/Fulda (dpa/sa) - The eastern associations of the Junge Union (JU) are pushing for security of supply in the energy crisis. "There are currently quite a few unanswered questions," said Saxony-Anhalt's state chief Anna Kreye of the German Press Agency. The communication of the federal government in the energy crisis has not been happy so far.
According to an application, the commuter allowance is to be increased to 60 cents retrospectively from the first kilometer as of January 1, 2022. In addition, the federal and state governments should be asked to retrofit existing public buildings with photovoltaic systems and to include them in new buildings. Another requirement is that operators of wind farms and photovoltaic systems in open spaces should be obliged to install suitable electricity storage devices for the respective locations.
The Junge Union is the youth organization of the CDU and CSU. Among others, the CDU Federal Chairman Friedrich Merz and Hesse's Prime Minister Boris Rhein are expected to attend Germany Day. In Fulda, a new federal executive board is also to be elected. The previous federal chairman Tilman Kuban will not stand again.
