Candidate for CDU Party President Jens Spahn calls for a vote on the federal CDU Convention on the settlement of the UN refugee pact and does not exclude the suspension of the signature. "All citizens' questions are on the table and they answered, otherwise we are politically fast," said Spahn Picture on Sunday, "If necessary, we will log in later."
Spahn stressed that an intensive debate on the migration pact was underway in the Union faction. This should have happened "just as openly at the CDU Party Congress" in December.
The Federal Minister for Health has severely criticized the treatment of the UN's current UN migration package: "Since we did not actively participate in the debate, we had the impression that we had something to hide and that the pact was sad." The lack of transparency promotes mistrust. This has already become clear in the debate on the TTIP Transatlantic Trade Agreement. The aim of the Pact adopted by the United Nations Member States is to help better organize flights and migrations and be adopted at a summit in December in Morocco.
Spahn wants to talk to AfD voters
Spahn is responsible for the success of AfD. "That the AFD is now sitting in 16 national parliaments and the Bundestag is also on us," he said Picture on Sunday, CDU could "be the only party to offer an abandonment program for AfD voters".
In the event of his election as president of the CDU, he wanted to go to places with many AFD voters and talk to them, Spahn said. "Rumors about AfD voters are too often here in political Berlin instead of them, so I would like to offer an open, impartial debate and convince them."
On the other hand, Spahn has excluded coalitions from AfD at provincial or federal levels: "We can not cooperate with a party that supports anti-Semitism and racism in its ranks, it supports the Russian authorities, is thinking at national level and wants less of Europe."
Spahn considers important candidates for the presidential leadership of the former leader of the faction Friedrich Merz and the CDU secretary general Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer. Chancellor Angela Merkel, chaired by Chancellor Angela Merkel, will be elected in December at a fun congress in Hamburg.
