- Week time Referring to Seehofer's personal credibility, he says he resigned as CSU's head.
- He himself denies it. He will do "one step at a time."
- As CSU continues, it will probably be clear on a special holiday. It has not been decided yet.
According to a media report, Horst Seehofer is apparently going to quit the CSU boss. There are a number of loyalists in the Seehofer area during the week Time The rumorous days confirmed that Seffoors would leave his post as leader of the party in the coming days. He also wanted to stay after his release, the Federal Minister of the Interior, on Wednesday reported this page, referring to non-known names known.
He himself thinks that. "It's a fat duck," he said the worldHe referred to his future plans for his previous guidelines: "One Step at a Time." He did not want to comment it any further. Even a CSU representative and his ministry rejected the report.
If this happens, despite the denial, the Seehofer approach would be similar to that of Chancellor Angela Merkel. She wants to start a CDU party conference in early December, should no longer re-elect her presidential but retain the post of government chancellor. Following Merkel's announcement of his decision, more and more votes from Berlin and Munich, which asked Seehofer to do this, is the same as the CDU chief. CDU and CSU had to bear heavy losses in the national elections in Hess and Bavaria – the blame for this is mainly due to federal policies.
timeAccording to the report, the Seehofer decision was substantially affected by Merkel's withdrawal. "Horst has since been simply unbelievably relieved that he did not enter the Merken Men's Cemetery," she quoted. time Convincing Seehofers.
He just announced a few days ago that he would announce his future. However, only after two other goals of the CSU have been achieved: Markus Söder must be sworn in as prime minister – this happened on Tuesday in the Bavarian State Parliament. Manfred Weber must vote in favor of the EPP leading candidate for European elections – this election will take place tomorrow in Helsinki. Niederbayers Weber is considered to be the favorite, but he has to keep up with Finland Alexander Stube, who also strives to become the best candidate.
Weber is also a member of the CSU as a possible candidate for the presidency of the party – in addition to Markus Söderm, who has expressed an interest in joining the party leadership internally. The new chair should choose a CSU, possibly a special party. If and when such an event will take place, this year on the next weekend may be forced – then the party leadership came to Munich. The probable date is already circulating on December 8th – the same weekend when the sister party CDU decides on Merkel's successor.
However, whether Sehofer can remain the interior minister after resigning from the party chairman is still open. "Hofs Seehofers is not committed to himself," said his spokesman in response to the media report. There is now a decision on Monday or Tuesday when Söder presented his new cabinet in Munich. With regard to coalition partners, the CDU and the VPD, Seehofer has been critical of Maasen's case and solo refugee policy efforts.
The opposition has also shot off at Seehofer and always touched his departure. More recently, Mr Seehofers did not appear before Parliament's Home Affairs Committee, in which he would really have to answer questions about the dismissal of Mr Hans-Georg Maassen, chairman of the constitutional protection of the constitution. However, the SPD was not aggressive in this incident, and it seemed to them that the Minister of the Interior was officially quoted in the committee.
