“Do you want Armin Lachet to be president?” With a CDU Presidium member like Norbert Rodgen, the Union Chancellor candidate could have expected a clear “yes” to this question but clearly shrunk.
On the ARD show “Anne Will”, Norbert Rodgen blocked a question from a presenter of the same name on Sunday evening. Instead, he insisted he was now interested in the content. He referred to the ongoing research talks for Jamaica or the Traffic Lighting Alliance. “We want to hold these discussions and, in this case, determine whether there is a consensus on the content,” Rodgen said. Only then can the employee talk about issues. If in doubt, can CSU boss Marcus Soder still lead the Jamaica coalition?

When asked by Rodgen why Armin Laschett could not stand for Rodgen, he said: “We can not say that we have the right to be government and president. Then we will ignore the outcome of the election.” He reiterated that the current task should be to find out whether there are political agreements.
Norbert Rodgen had already made it clear in an interview with “Dazzbeizel” over the weekend that he considered Armin Laschett a party leader in the call. “Accepting the candidate was a key conversation in the election campaign. Armin Lashett knows that, too,” he said. When asked about this, he said Sunday evening that they are now indebted to “honesty”.
According to him, the CDU and CSU are “the only people’s party in Germany”. To be like that, action is needed. Everything else is “in danger”.
Mecklenburg-West Pomerania Prime Minister Manuela Svezik (SPD) has repeatedly shaken his head at Norbert Radzen’s statements. The CDU politician said “a big joke in a bag”. Because: “If you do not say Chancellor, the CDU should go to the opposition.”
In despair, “You want to form a government, but you do not want to say who runs the government?” These are all “different numbers”. After all, the election campaign has always been about the people.
