BERLIN (dpa-AFX) – The CDU wants to complete its personnel realignment after the debacle in the federal election next January. The federal executive decided unanimously on Tuesday that this should be done at a party congress on 21./22. January should happen in Hanover. Before that there will be a member survey about the successor to Armin Laschet as party leader. The process will therefore take longer than the regional associations in particular, with elections soon, would have wished. Prime ministers such as Tobias Hans in Saarland and Hendrik Wüst in North Rhine-Westphalia had pressed for a party congress this year.

Laschet said that part of the party wanted the broadest possible membership participation, while another part wanted the process to be as quick as possible. A compromise has been found for the procedure. “I think this is a good way to get the CDU to restart.” In Saarland, a new state parliament will be elected on March 27, in Schleswig-Holstein on May 8 and in North Rhine-Westphalia on May 15. The CDU is the head of government in all three countries.

The deputy federal chairwoman Julia Klöckner emphasized: “We not only have questions of personnel, we also have questions of content and location.” After 16 years of government it is clear that “there is a turning point where we have to reposition ourselves”. Secretary-General Ziemiak said that we should now also talk about what renewal and a clear profile of the Union would look like. “It’s not just about people, it has to focus on content.” For example, work on a new basic program must be continued./bk/sk/DP/jha
