Decision in March?: Like Söder, are fuelling the debate to the Chancellor candidacy

The CSU Chairman and Bavarian Prime Minister, Markus Söder, has given the discussion about the candidacy of the Union for a new twist. So far, he had said, the decision will fall to the CDU party Congress, which takes place at the beginning of December in Stuttgart, Germany, at the beginning of the next year. Now Söder expressed that the Union would be superior to the CDU party Congress, which was the right appointment. "This must not necessarily be the January, which can also take place in March 2021," he told the newspaper "Bild am Sonntag". As he argued, a "long campaign in addition to an active Chancellor makes little sense".

Söder emphasized in the recent time, the proposal in the candidacy for Chancellor of the CDU.

The third candidate for the party presidency, Norbert Röttgen, had said that he could not imagine that the CDU-Chairman would candidate for Chancellor.

Söder wins

Söders advance, to decide in March of next year, would result in December to two difficult party days. First of all, the CDU would have to behave differently, as it accepts your outgoing Chairman, and the candidates for the presidency would have to do without it, in terms of candidacy for Chancellor to determine. A week later, would hold the CSU to its Congress, at which it is likely to also come to a determination. The CSU party Congress was originally scheduled in November, will be held. Söder decided that the CSU delegates Congress of the party met only after the CDU.
