The Council should have for the previous AfD group chief Markus Plenk. For the CSU, the case is a sensitive issue.
The previous AfD-politician Markus Plenk may well occur in the CSU. He should be in his home town of Ruhpolding, in the circuit of Traunstein, a recording application, is likely to be adopted. The CSU-Council, according to media reports pronounced with a majority. Local Chairman Justus Pfeifer said the BR, Plenk will roll, "no red carpet". He would be treated like any other potential new member. In addition, he should, if a request is received, initially for one year on trial. We have adapted the approach closely with the party leadership in Munich.
The concept of a trial membership supports thus the Traunsteiner district administrator and CSU district Chairman Siegfried Walch. The deciding factor should be whether someone is "parts of the value Foundation of the CSU". The organic farmer and management consultant Plenk, at the time, with Katrin Ebner-Steiner, head of the AfD parliamentary group, had swept in early April, the AfD back. There he had announced that the CSU change. With the request or decision before the European elections, but is not to be expected.
For the Christian-social is the case a very sensitive matter, he decides, however, about the General line in dealing with high-level AfD of the people; in the party which has led to long Controversy. For example, the Ex-Deputy and consolation Berger CSU, said CEO Markus Fröschl in April: Should Plenk occur in the CSU parliamentary group, he would leave the party. CSU General Secretary Markus Blume said on Friday that they will look at each individual case - as also in the case of Plenk. "It is clear that It can only give a guest membership on a trial basis." Such could take up to a year. Since Plenk have not yet applied for admission, giving it up for him, but not a new Stand, flower. "If there is a member application, we will consider this carefully." The prerequisite for admission to the CSU, a clear distancing from the AfD and a commitment to our values is"".
at Least, the distancing of the AfD should have proven Plenk, of course, already. Goodbye in April, he said he wanted to put "no more energy in the Effort to preserve the AfD group in front of a shift to the right". He "got sick of it, to be the bourgeois façade of a xenophobic and extremist party".
