Resistance against Söder: Hot air and politics of staging

The North Rhine-Westphalian Minister of the interior, Herbert Reul (CDU) has spoken out vehemently against the Bavarian Minister President and CSU leader Markus Söder as a candidate for Chancellor. He was "inexplicable", how could people get the idea that Söder would be a good candidate for Chancellor, said Reul, the "Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger". The CSU Chairman have the Union with its strategy, "to want the AfD to the right to overtake" since 2015 "serious damage" inflicted, criticized the NRW-Minister of the interior. The cost of the Union, "nearly 20 percent of the consent".

That the Bavarian Prime Minister have consulted, in the meantime, and now "green" give, show, only, that Söder have "no clear political compass". "Hot air and a policy that relies on productions," don't bring more to the Union, said Reul on the CSU leader. Surveys have recently shown that many people can imagine Söder as Chancellor. Söder yourself stressed, so far, his place is in Bavaria.

The North Rhine-Westphalian Prime Minister, Armin Laschet is one of the candidates for the party presidency of the CDU and, thus, to the circle of potential contenders for the Chancellor candidacy. Other candidates for the CDU chairmanship of the former Faction leader in the Bundestag, Friedrich Merz, and former Federal environment Minister Norbert Röttgen are. Over the succession of party leader Annegret Kramp-karrenbauer, will decide the CDU at a party Congress in December.
