Dresden – Saxony’s Prime Minister Michael Kretschmer (CDU) has criticized the behavior of the Union at the federal level after the federal election. The election result was an earthquake and showed a very clear mood of change against the CDU, he said on Monday morning at MDR Saxony.
|Prime Minister of Saxony:||Michael Kretschmer|
|Born:||May 7, 1975 (age 46), Görlitz|
|Political party:||Christian Democratic Union of Germany (CDU)|
|Government office:||Member of the Federal Council of the Federal Republic of Germany since 2018|
You have to admit that very clearly. Kretschmer said that the attitude in the Adenauer House in Berlin did not open up to him to speak of a government mandate. This line is exactly on the previous course that led to the crash of the Union, and is not sustainable.
CDU Chancellor candidate Armin Laschet had claimed the contract to form a government for himself on the evening of the election. According to the preliminary results, the CDU / CSU fell to a record low of 24.1 percent after Chancellor Angela Merkel’s reign of 16 years.
After the 2021 election: Kretschmer attributes AfD success to mistakes in federal politics
Kretschmer attributed the success of the AfD in Saxony, which again became the strongest force and won ten of 16 direct mandates, to mistakes in federal politics, especially in the fight against the corona pandemic. There, Saxony acted closer to the people and decided against daycare and school closings, for example.
However, this path was stopped by the federal emergency brake. Kretschmer regretted that the numerous losses of CDU direct mandates in the Free State significantly worsened the opportunities for Saxony to participate in shaping it at the federal level.
