The fact that the Junge Union is now showing him the yellow card could prove to be a warning sign for CSU boss Söder.
A comment by Merkur editor-in-chief Georg Anastasiadis.
In the search for scapegoats for the election disaster, the Munich State Chancellery struck gold again: The “own staff” did not pull as “we expected”, said CSU boss Söder at the national assembly of the Junge Union, apparently self-critical a - but did not mean himself, but the list candidates (selected by him). The analysis is probably not entirely wrong that the voters did not want to enthusiastically put their crosses in droves with the affair-shaken Andi Scheuer or Dorothee Bär. But you could have known that beforehand. Passing the buck on you now is not very noble. To put on a one-man show first and to post Söder everywhere, and then, if it is not successful, to point the finger at the people in the second and third rows,does not belong.
The wind has turned for the criticized CSU boss
No wonder that the number was badly received by the party’s youngsters.
There you have a good sense of fairness.
A boss who leaves his people out in the rain in order to look better himself has to expect that his fellow party members will do the same to him.
So it happened.
With a three-quarters majority, the young CSU members deleted the “draft horse Söder” from a board of directors.
For the CSU boss, who has also come under heavy criticism within the party, this could prove to be a sign: It was the Junge Union that once paved the way for him to the top.
Now the wind has turned.
And again it is the youngsters of the party who are the first to show their boss the yellow card.
