follow The Junge Union is a youth organization that at its peak is amazing there is continuity. In the past twenty years, there have been only three chairmen. Therefore, the attention of the CDU is this Saturday at the German state Parliament of the Junge Union - with well over 100 000 members of the JU is the largest political youth organisation in Europe. Paul Ziemiak, the previous Chairman, became the CDU's Secretary-General, therefore, a successor must be chosen. To be the Meeting in the Berliner Congress Center CDU Boss Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer and CSU leader Markus Söder. Immediately after the Speeches of the two party Chairman, the election of the Ziemiak successor should begin.

Two candidates are available for selection, the race is considered to be open. So far, only one thing is certain: unlike in the past twenty years, the new chief will not come from North Rhine-Westphalia. Because Florian Braun, the Chairman of the largest JU-land Association, and prefers to take care of to continue his career in North Rhine-Westphalia. And so the way to the Federal top is free for the lower Saxony Tilman Kuban or Thuringia, Stefan Gruhner.

Should win Gruhner, would be the first Time an East German at the head of the young Union. In the autumn regional elections in Brandenburg, Saxony and Thuringia are pending and in the CDU-to-peak in Eastern Germany has so far been rather sparsely represented, speaks for Gruhner. The 34-Year-old is regarded as a modern Conservative, some compare him with Jens Spahn. This is due to the fact that Gruhner is gay. In socio-political issues, he has rather advanced views, he is quite rigid. He is proud to be a member of a powerful connection.

"Storm and erdverwachsen" Kuban does not feel poorly described

Gruhner studied history and politics. Before he was elected in 2014, in the Thuringian state Parliament, he was a servant, personal assistant to the former Minister-President Christine lieberknecht. His constituency (Saale-Orla I) it has obtained directly, in the fall, he wants to defend his mandate. In Thuringia, the CDU is in the polls virtually neck and neck with the Left and the AfD. Gruhner, says he was "politically in the front line". In his state of the only Prime Minister of Left-ruled. And in his constituency, the AfD in the Bundestag election in some communities, the strongest party was. Gruhner believes that the preoccupation with the Left and Right is one of the Central challenges for the CDU and its experience can be helpful. Be the national Association to the English Parliament, although only six of the 320 delegates. But he is also supported by the major associations of North Rhine-Westphalia, Baden-Württemberg and Hessen.

Gruhners opponent Tilman Kuban can include, among other things, on the Bavaria. In addition, his stock refers to the fact that the JU-country members of the management Board of North Rhine-Westphalia and Hesse, Gruhner was only recommended with a 9:8 or 8:on 7 votes. Kuban is a candidate for the European Parliament - to be list is the place so well, that his choice is considered to be safe. The 31-Year-old studied law, he is now head of the legal Department in the trade associations of lower Saxony.

the Kuban, would be the first JU-chief who sits in the European Parliament. His enemies scatter, that he would have because of the necessary Commute between Strasbourg and Berlin to little time for the JU-presidency. But that doesn't allow for Kuban do not apply. Camp points out, that, Yes, even Gruhner would have to do other tasks - such as the defence of his parliamentary mandate. In addition, Gruhner was just a transition-in-chief, because he would already be exceeded prior to the next regular election, in the case of the JU existing age limit of 35 years.

the Kuban, was in no blow link, but also he has not so far been by left-wing debauchery known. On the contrary, In October 2015, as many of the students were still on Refugees-Welcome-Kuban co-signatory of a letter of CDU politicians, the Chancellor, Angela Merkel's course was violently criticized. Kuban is as a shirt-sleeved man of the base. With the line "Storm and erdverwachsen" from the lower Saxony song, he feels not bad described. He points out, to be the chief of the Committee on fire Department, Sport, culture and order in Council of his home town of Barsinghausen. But Kuban has long been a political professional, he is regarded as a good NetWorker, the JU of lower Saxony, he leads for half a decade. And so are likely to give this Saturday only, the application speeches of the two candidates, the decisive factor in who wins.
