« We can’t go on like this “: CDU president Armin Laschet has scratched Angela Merkel’s record by launching a consultation to prepare her party’s program for the September elections. Armin Laschet, elected in January, must give grain to grind to voters who in the polls are turning away from his party with a drop of ten points in a few weeks.
Critics of health policy and the vaccination campaign are fueling this bad wind. Armin Laschet once again criticized Angela Merkel who attacked regional barons who were not resolute enough in their fight against the pandemic. ” We must have confidence in those who work in the field », Retorted Armin Laschet.
Six months before the general elections, the boss of the CDU is not only attacking the left, but also the statue of the commander, the chancellor. Armin Laschet also wanted by his speech to show his determination. But the question of the race for the chancellery among the Conservatives is not yet clarified.
The boss of the CDU has a more popular rival, the chairman of the Bavarian sister party CSU Markus Söder. The decision must be made between Easter and Pentecost.
