Who will be the successor, Angela Merkel, has held the post of Chairman of the Christian democratic Union of Germany since 2000: her protégé Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, the current General Secretary of the CDU, or a long-time opponent Friedrich Merz?
This question is intended to give Congress the response of the conservatives in Hamburg. Not an easy task, and the responsible decision: the leader of the CDU, remaining, despite the drop in ranking, the leading political force of the country, may subsequently lead the government.
Argument in Kramp-Karrenbauer and Merz can intervene and the Minister of health, young and energetic Jens span.
The delegates in Hamburg is to decide which of them will be able to return the party to its former greatness.
