On Saturday morning, CDU boss Armin Laschet faces the Junge Union.

It could be a tough event.

CSU boss Markus Söder canceled his appearance at short notice.

Münster - It's hard to imagine that Armin Laschet is looking forward to this appointment.

The theme of the Junge Union's three-day “Germany Day” is dealing with the election defeat.

The annual event is the highest body of the Junge Union.

CDU boss Laschet will give a speech on Saturday morning.

Previously, at the opening on Friday evening, the union chairman was settled - in front of a large audience.

According to the AFP news agency, 318 delegates from all 18 regional and foreign associations came to Münster.

The Junge Union's criticism of Laschet and Söder: "Get out of the old way of thinking"

"Anyone who appears in the election campaign like Armin Laschet shouldn't claim to become chancellor directly after the election, but above all should take responsibility for the result," said the state chairman of the Union youth organization of North Rhine-Westphalia, Johannes Winkel. The federal head of the Junge Union, Tilman Kuban, also announced an honest résumé of the election defeat. The CDU must "get out of the old way of thinking" so that the Union can be brought on the right course for the future.

Actually, CSU boss Markus Söder was also expected at the Junge Union's Germany Day, but he canceled at short notice - for a CSU grassroots event in Bavaria.

He was not only criticized for this.

"Anyone who follows the election campaign like Markus Söder shouldn't talk about questions of style after the election, but go to confession," said Winkel.

The country chief also called for Laschet's successor as CDU chief to be determined by means of a member survey.

The CDU committees are too “in a crisis of confidence” for such a task.

Further speakers on Saturday are CDU Vice President Jens Spahn and the General Secretaries of the CDU and CSU, Paul Ziemiak and Markus Blume.
