“In addition to an active chancellor, it makes little sense”

Will CSU boss Söder get something out of the question “Munich or Berlin” in the “Summer Interview” (ARD)? Before that, he has an insistent tip for the Union.

Berlin – In the K question appears to be Bavaria’s prime minister Markus Söder to have the peace away. When nominating a joint Chancellor candidates with the CDU CSU chief now pronounced for more time. “After the CDU party congress, we will consider a time to determine the candidate for chancellor,” said Söder der Picture on Sunday. It doesn’t necessarily have to be January, “it can’t take place until March 2021,” he said. This Sunday (August 2nd) Söder is a guest at “Summer Interview” in the ARD (Broadcast on TV from 6:05 p.m. and live streaming in the media library from 3:30 p.m.).

Too long an election campaign alongside an active chancellor makes little sense, he said. Of course, he was pleased that, according to surveys, he was also expected to perform other tasks. “But my job is in Bavaria”said Söder. Current polls see Söder as favourite the citizen on the question of who at the Bundestag election 2021 to stand for the Union.

“Too long an election campaign next to an active chancellor makes little sense,” said Söder, explaining his point of view. At the beginning of June he had said that the question would probably be in January after the Election of the new CDU leader decided. The CDU comes to one in early December Party congress in Stuttgart together to elect a new party leader. The CSU meets a week later Nuremberg.

North Rhine-Westphalia’s prime minister is applying for the CDU chairmanship – and thus indirectly for the chancellor candidacy Armin Laschet*, the economic politician Friedrich Merz and the foreign politician Norbert Röttgen.

Of course, he is pleased that, according to surveys, he is also expected to perform other tasks, Söder confirmed to the Picture on Sunday. “But at the same time, the Bavarians want to keep me as prime minister.” That was very important for him. “The CDU has the right to propose the candidate for chancellor and has always been the chancellor party. There are good reasons why the CSU never appointed the chancellor. ”

We can expect Corona to come back to us with full force. I am very concerned about the increasing number of cases in Germany. Absolute vigilance is required and therefore there is no time for new easing or naive carelessness. 1/2

Söder is in the Corona crisis* meanwhile strictly against others Easing of precautionary measures such as Mask requirement or Keep distance – His reasoning: “We have to reckon with Corona coming at us with full force”, so it is one second wave of the pandemic could give.
