The candidate for the CDU presidency, Friedrich Merz, has criticised the behaviour of his Party colleague Philip Amthor and as a "Mist" referred to. "You may not use its letterhead as a member, if you ask for support for a company, the connected business," said the economic politician and candidate to the party Chairman of the CDU "Focus Online". As Philip Amthor had to leave, apparently, the instinct. "He just made crap."
Merz said he had always been of the opinion that you "should exercise as a simple member of Parliament" in "to a limited extent in professional activities". "But it needs full transparency. To combine the Deputy mandate with professional activities – you can't.“
Merz is regarded as a political friend Amthors. On ash Wednesday, the former Union leader at a Traditional herring dinner was occurred in the constituency of the 27-year-old Bundestag Deputy in Ueckermünde, in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
Merz said, he regretted very much what had happened, because he treasures Amthor "as a people, as members and also as a type". "I hope that he solves the case and his political work can continue."Updated Date: 18 June 2020, 12:19
