Women's quota: Giffey welcomed the plans of the CDU

Minister for women's Affairs Franziska Giffey has welcomed the plans of the CDU leadership for a quota for women in the party. You will find the development "very well," said the SPD politician on Wednesday in Berlin. "You could say Yes, nice that it arrived there." You hope that the women in the Union set by the Congress agree with the plans, because this is necessary in order for the ratio. "I think it is good, if there is motion everywhere that you have just makes for a more equal part as well." The concern of the party landscape.

The CDU top candidate for the baden-württemberg state election, Susanne Eisenmann, said that the plans solved the Problem. "The quota alone will not make women in the area," said Eisenmann, who is in Baden-Württemberg, culture Minister, on Wednesday in Stuttgart. It is also the reconciliation of family and professional life and to a culture in which women felt comfortable. She wishes that more women are candidates. There is still a need for action.

The Young Union in Baden-Wuerttemberg rejects, however, the introduction of a quota for women in the CDU strictly. "This is a lazy compromise. We are fundamentally opposed to a quota. Who wants to earn a Post in the party to make this commitment, achievement and dedication", said the Chairman Philipp Bürkle of the "Heilbronner Stimme" and the "Mannheimer Morgen". "Then it doesn't matter whether it is a woman or a man, or whether someone is young or old. The discussion of a women's quota is a discussion from the last Millennium.“

Bürkle, announced that he will fight "passionately against the concept of women's quota". Thus, he deviates from the Position of the Union youth organization in the Federal government. The Federal Chairman of the Junge Union, Tilman Kuban, had referred to the compromise as compared with the "Bild-Zeitung" as "acceptable". From party circles it was said that Kuban have declared that he will advertise for the compromise.

The Federal CDU wants to reform with a binding step, a quota for women ways. The structure and bylaws Commission of the CDU introduced on Wednesday in the course. A final decision on the 1001 delegates of the electoral party Congress meeting at the beginning of December in Stuttgart. The CDU top candidate for the state election, Susanne Eisenmann, had referred to the plans for a quota for women previously as a "step in the right direction".

The compromise proposal of the CDU for a stronger participation of women for Board elections from the County level is from 1. January 2021, a women's quota of 30 per cent, which rises gradually, and by 2025, 50 percent should be located.

The scheme will apply to group elections of Board members for Vice-Chairman and assessors, but not for individual options about of the Chairman or treasure-master on the Federal level. Of the women's quota can be deviated from if there is not enough applicants to run inside.
