Magdeburg – The state elections in Saxony-Anhalt are under special observation. It is considered a sentiment meter for the corona policy of the federal government and especially the CDU before the federal election in autumn. It is also explosive that the Christian Democrats and the right-wing populist AfD party were at the top of the polls. In most of the polls, however, the CDU was most recently in front. A head-to-head race is not excluded. Will there be a showdown between the CDU and AfD *?
“I am satisfied when Reiner Haseloff * becomes Prime Minister and we are in first place,” said Union Chancellor candidate Armin Laschet a few days ago in the ARD talk “Maischberger”. Due to the high approval ratings of the AfD in surveys, the CDU leadership was repeatedly pushed to make clear statements about the AfD before the state elections. Said CDU Prime Minister Haseloff * governs in Saxony-Anhalt with a Kenya coalition of CDU *, SPD and the Greens. How things will continue after the state elections is open.
