After the election failure, the CDU is reorganizing. Several men are scrambling to succeed Armin Laschet. And women? They don’t matter.
Berlin – In the CDU, the annoyance is growing: After the failed federal election in 2021, women politicians complained about their dwindling influence on the direction of the party. In the planned reorganization, women threatened to be ignored, warned the previous deputy chief of the Bundestag parliamentary group, Nadine Schön, in an interview with the Rheinische Post. “For years we have had too few women in parliament and in the party. We have to become more, ”she said.
She was referring to a power struggle that had broken out in the CDU. After the election failure, in which Chancellor candidate Armin Laschet only led the party in place, consequences should now be drawn. The federal board is to be completely re-elected this year. So far, however, only men have been traded as candidates for party leadership. The fact that no woman is considered is a result of years of decline within the Union. * Kreiszeitung.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
