Merz has attacked his rivals: is this morning on the news that the 39-year-old Jens Spahn, renounces to the candidacy to occur in tandem with the governor of north rhine-Westphalia, Armin Laschet. And the former politician of the Cdu was kicked by Merkel, and he has been a refugee for over a decade in finance, he calls it a “cartel” and spoke of a “continuity” with Merkel that it would be in contrast with the “renewal” promised by him. On the contrary Merz, both Laschet both Spahn have actually reported continuity, are not intended to represent a danger of early elections and want to keep the Cdu. And already in the choice of not tearing the party further but to join forces in order to rediscover the harmony of the Cdu “is in its worst crisis”, as underlined by Spahn, there is already a lot of tandem Laschet-Spahn.
The two also aim to convince the two different souls of the Cdu: Laschet the merkeliani, and the wing more social, while Spahn, from the homosexual said, has always put the emphasis on what is now termed “the patriotism open to the world”, in which the family, the tradition and the ‘Heimat’, are compatible with a liberal view of the world. “You can be at the same time for the protection of the environment and that of the borders,” stressed the Health minister. And Laschet has not failed to send a stilettata to rival Merz: “it is Not the conquest of an identity in the party, isolating themselves from others.” Both Laschet both Spahn (which in the case of a victory at the congress would become his deputy) have put the emphasis on the need to unite the party. Also from a torn figure-dividing and impatient as Merz.
In fact, the former head of the Cdu has emphasized rather the themes on which he intends to break with the past, primarily through “a new generational pact, after many decisions of recent years have weighed especially on the young.” Then “closing the spaces to the right”, but the electorate ran away in the Afd; coping with increased expression of the challenges of the future such as digitisation. Finally, on Europe, and avoid taking the wrong decisions of recent years - “I cite two examples: energy policy and migration policy.
On two issues, Merz runs the risk of splitting not only his party or the Country, but also Europe. The candidate anti-AKK considers it to be “wrong” some of the choices of the Ecb, starting from the QE, the purchase extraordinary of treasury securities that has saved Europe from deflation and anemic growth. But above all, Merz pointed out that in the dramatic summer of 2015, when Wolfgang Schaeuble led to the Eurogroup proposal to oust Greece from the euro, he would have deployed “with the ministers of Finance rather than with the Council that decided to save Athens.
