In Hamburg the congress of the German conservatives who elected Annegret Crump-Karrenbaueer Angela Merkel successor on a post of the chairman of CDU came to the end.

On Saturday, December 8, in Hamburg came to the end a two-day congress of the Christian and Democratic Union (CDU) - leading ruling party in Germany of the coalition of the chancellor Angela Merkel. Delegates made the most important already the day before. They elected the successor Merkel on a post of the chairman of the party the secretary general of CDU Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer - the chancellor's favourite.

of AKK - so for simplicity reduce her name - with a separation in only 35 voices (52 against 48 percent) bypassed in the second round of vote of the former chairman of fraction of conservatives in the Bundestag Friedrich Merz who is considered the inner-party opponent of the chancellor. Election of the new leader of CDU remained the main subject and the second day of a congress of conservatives - at least, on its sidelines.

of CDU on the verge of split?

"If I was a member of this party, then now would leave it", - on Saturday to the correspondent of DW the reporter of one respectable German newspaper so commented on defeat of Merz who was hope of all dissatisfied in CDU with too liberal, according to them, Angela Merkel course.

"CDU relied on continuity, but not on radical shift, - the commentator of the Spiegel weekly Ralf Neukirch specifies. - But AKK will not pursue just the same policy as Merkel, she is not Mini-Merkel.

Protection of the nature - the conservative value
it refers To number of primordially Christian, conservative values, for example, many representations of Union-90 / green party. For AKK, by her own words, "protection of the nature given us by God" is one of classical tasks of CDU.
