The former North Rhine-Westphalian Prime Minister Armin Laschet (CDU) warned in his farewell speech before the Düsseldorf state parliament that the democrats should be united. Even in the opposition, one should “not succumb to the temptation to stir up hatred and resentment,” said the 60-year-old new member of the Bundestag on Wednesday in a special session of the state parliament.



The former North Rhine-Westphalian Prime Minister Armin Laschet (CDU) warned in his farewell speech before the Düsseldorf state parliament that the democrats should be united.

Even in the opposition, one should “not succumb to the temptation to stir up hatred and resentment,” said the 60-year-old new member of the Bundestag on Wednesday in a special session of the state parliament.

Düsseldorf - The same applies to the government. Probably no government had as much power as during the corona pandemic, said Laschet. Nobody should "fall into omnipotence fantasies" about this, he warned. Any encroachments on fundamental rights should be withdrawn as quickly as possible. "That is also important: measure and center". What might be seen as procrastination outside of North Rhine-Westphalia is a tradition here: dealing with power responsibly. "We came through this pandemic in accordance with the constitution," emphasized the CDU chairman and candidate for chancellor of the Union in the federal election.

Laschet was Prime Minister of the most populous federal state for over four years.

He has been a member of the Bundestag since Tuesday.

At noon, the previous state transport minister Hendrik Wüst (46) should be elected as his successor in the special session of the state parliament.
