The Fans of the Friedrich Merz to sleep now seems to be wide open window. Different is difficult to explain why on Monday, a "Baden-Württemberg's Initiative" for the unsuccessful candidate for the CDU presidency proclaimed the glad tidings: "We have a Signal of Friedrich Merz!" The sound like the would be pissed missing countries, according to the Hamburg Convention on the high seas and it has finally intercepted a radio transmission. Shortly thereafter, the Signal must have reached but also the "image"-newspaper. On Tuesday, the magazine reports: "Merz wants to be asked!" The Ex-Leader was willing, in the CDU continue to work – he's waiting for an offer.
he can wait, possibly longer, due to practical reasons. A date for the interview, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer him wants to run, not stand still. A freshly baked party Chairman, is, Yes, cluttered also for the first time with the new obligations. On Tuesday, for example, the Saar countries in the British Embassy know of a spontaneous learning had a meeting with the British Prime Minister and leader of the conservative sister party. Theresa May was in Berlin to advertise in German Chancellor Angela Merkel for a Go on their Brexit-adversary.
what is certain, however, as the new CDU-wants to be Chairman to go into the conversation: "I'm going to talk with Friedrich Merz, how he wants to bring in," she Wants to on Sunday night when "Anne explained"Talk. That is exactly the opposite approach: Not AKK brings a gift package – Merz should first say what can be thought of as the contribution that he had promised at the party Congress.
What his Fans want, and they make no secret of the fact: the Ministry of economy for their favorites. As a consolation prize that would be, however, very lush. Quite apart from the fact that in the house of the Saarland, Merkel and Kramp-Karrenbauer-Confidant Peter Altmaier, sits, would be the Chancellor and the CDU will advise the Head bad, to get is only too foreseeable conflicts in the government, and to prepare the rivals on top of that, a stage for a return match.
Has anyone intentionally made the microphone down?
in fact, this hope shines through clearly through the Mutterings from the valley of the Neckar, and of the Berlin kochstraße. It is a sign of poor losers. The third candidate, Jens Spahn was expressly urged that the ugly rumors to contradict, which had scattered the Merz-Younger still in Hamburg: no, there had been no consultation, that his followers should go in the second round to AKK, assured the Minister of health, the "mirror": "I know of no consultation and was not part of such an agreement." Also, a recommendation he had given to his supporters, "not two, three, six, or eight corners". He could not imagine by the way that Merz even believe in the rumors that are spread about, some Saboteur had asked him during his speech intentionally, the microphone quieter.
The rumors say more about their authors than about the reality of the party tags. You don't want to believe that your Hero has failed at the crucial Moment. You also want to steer into the skid not to be reminded that there was an offer for a long time, the Merz, but refused to do: as an elected member of the Bureau, the fortunes of the party. This may seem little, when shortly before the party presidency, rails Yes chancellorship in close proximity. But others dream of a lifetime.
The Smarter ones among the Merz-working friends because a long time ago on a different strategy. It aims at the strong showing of conservative economic expert in political currency for himself. "I don't trust Ms. Kramp-karrenbauer, that you know that you must quickly send signals," says Carsten Linnemann. The Chairman of the Central Association was thinking of signals that the party takes care of a total of more to the interests of the economic wing, and the concerns of the Conservatives.
Of Merz even wants Linnemann aid-especially on market places and in halls: "He could bring in the upcoming European electoral campaign of his Expertise and also in the forthcoming election campaigns in Saxony, Thuringia and Brandenburg." Spahn would also be good if the would be mad to pull countries in the election campaign. Otherwise, the clarification of Merz’ future have time: You do not need to so something immediately, and still under the impression of the party tags.More about

a movement "Merz to the Cabinet", which extends through a pair of Swabian country politicians can, therefore, be no question. Even the employer's President doesn't think to fight on their side. Kramp-Karrenbauer've proven in the Saar, that they understand the concerns of the economy, says Ingo Kramer of the dpa. The employer could make a good living.
