The Prime Minister of Schleswig-Holstein, Daniel Günther, was recently open to coalitions with links. Despite criticism from party circles, he defended his proposal. The CDU may not steal responsibility.
IIn the fight for possible alliances with the left party, Prime Minister Daniel Günther of Schleswig-Holstein defended his initiative. He wanted to gain understanding for a specific position in East Germany, said the CDU politician of the "Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung". If there are situations where no coalitions can be formed against the left, the CDU should not take responsibility: "Even if the situation is still so difficult, we must be ready to form a government."
Günther was recently open to coalitions with the left party in East Germany – and therefore received strong criticism from the ranks of the Union. Chancellor Angela Merkel made clear in mid-August that she did not believe in alliances with the left.
Günther campaign now also with a view to the AfD for the differentiation to other parties to do differently than before. "The part of the voters, who are being touched by demarcation through nightmares, is getting smaller," said the prime minister of the "FAZ". Delineation should be, but in the sense that "we clearly say what we want and in what we differ from each other".
The sense that there could not be a democratically legitimated party to the law of the Union was still correct, Günther said. The offer of the CDU and CSU "also conservative" must be so broad that the right of the Union remains no place for a party.
