"world premiere" with Kramp-Karrenbauer in the Seeon
"the UK is in political Chaos, who wants this mess in Germany, too, must choose AfD, will get what is given to the British also, because they followed the populists. For me, the message is: It is 1000 times better, to renew Europe to leave Europe or to destroy it."
Yes to Europe and Yes to the Union, these signals are of Seeon 2019. The CDU leader, Kramp-Karrenbauer was given a lot of space. An unusual amount of space, also in the closing press conference. The CSU land group chief Alexander Dobrindt spoke of a "world premiere" and a clear Signal that the Union wished to keep the Balance between cohesion and debate. The new CDU leader, Kramp-Karrenbauer agreed Dobrindt.
The strength in the past of the CDU and the CSU had been, Kramp-Karrenbauer, not to define themselves as a cover of the same party, but to emphasize what unites the sisters in a large consensus, but also to accept the quirks.
