Armin Laschet, the CDU leader, once again uses his chance to campaign for himself.

After the Chancellor

(see update from September 25th, 12.25 p.m.)

, he comes to the lectern.

He recalls the last state election in North Rhine-Westphalia when he won.

The day before, Merkel was also in Aachen *, the polls fluctuated, the outcome open.

In the end, the CDU won.

"I am sure, because it is back today, it will succeed tomorrow, the CDU will be the strongest political force," Laschet called out to those present.

He pays tribute to Merkel's achievements, such as her “acting instead of making big speeches”. Merkel remains standing next to him on the stage, clapping and grinning from time to time, otherwise listens or sometimes holds on to the desk. Laschet asks the group who can best continue their time. “Does anyone think red-red-green can do that?” Screams and interim screams on the square. “There were 23 people who believe that, the rest don't believe that red-red-green can do that,” Laschet estimates. “I don't want the left to sit in the next federal government,” he adds.

Occasionally, Laschet is briefly irritated by boos from the background. But he masters most of the speech confidently and shows a willingness to fight. He received a lot of applause, for example, when he reported from the Bundestag "what a tone has found its way there" and thus looks at the AfD. Merkel clearly agrees with him and nods. A little later, a moment of laughter: “Well over there someone holds up an SPD poster and shouts 'ridiculous',” comments Laschet. For viewers on television, it remains unclear what the situation on site looks like. Laschet then criticized the SPD, which had been “the coal party badly for over 50 years” in North Rhine-Westphalia and which is now fighting for the environmental movement at the forefront. “That's not serious,” says Laschet.After a substantive swivel about guest workers and internal security, Laschet ends and again campaigns for votes for the CDU at his home game in Aachen.

Merkel in the election campaign for the federal election: headwind - "Not the CDU!"

Update from September 25, 12.25 p.m.:

Angela Merkel is on the stage in Aachen and supports Armin Laschet one day before the general election.

“I must have done something wrong, so congratulations to Aachen,” she says, referring to the weather.

Because Laschet was only recently in her constituency in Stralsund, but Laschet could only see little because it was raining at the time.

She praised Laschet and emphasized that he had repeatedly spoken in speeches and at appearances about the European Union's work of unity and had campaigned for peace and the future of Europe.

Merkel emphasizes that it doesn't matter who rules the country.

"I would like to tell you from my experience that there are always points in the political life of a Federal Chancellor. It doesn't matter who governs, but the right decision has to be made." everyone agrees: it must ensure prosperity, security and peace.

Immediately afterwards, shouts from the background of protesters can be heard: "Not the CDU!"

Merkel intervenes surprisingly clearly in the election campaign: last appearance with Laschet

Merkel looks back on the last few decades and also on her years. She then speaks about Corona, climate protection, jobs and internal security, with little new content becoming clear. At the end she advertises again for Laschet, who is known for being able to build bridges. “Armin Laschet doesn't come from anywhere, he comes here from Aachen. He learned politics from the bottom up, ”says Merkel. And his country, which he has ruled as prime minister so far, is diverse. "I think the only thing missing is the sea, but then you go to Stralsund." And then she noticed another little thing: "And a few mountains, but you are going to Bavaria."

Update from September 25, 11.35 a.m.:

Over 4000 crimes are related to the current election campaign.

According to a report, this is the result of a survey among the federal states.

According to the report, it is mainly about property damage, in particular to election posters.

But violent crimes, propaganda crimes and insults were also recorded.

Aachen - It is the final of the CDU election campaign: One day before the Bundestag election on Sunday, Union Chancellor candidate Armin Laschet (CDU) and Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) take part in a rally in Laschet's hometown Aachen.

The final election campaign event will take place at 12 noon in the Aachen district of Burtscheid, where Armin Laschet, who is currently still Prime Minister of North Rhine-Westphalia, lives.

On Tuesday evening, the Chancellor and the candidate for Chancellor already appeared in Merkel's constituency of Stralsund.

The official end of the election campaign of the CDU and CSU was already planned for Friday evening (September 24th) in Munich with Merkel, Laschet and the CSU chairman Markus Söder.
