Berlin's CDU chairman Kai Wegner has defended his election campaign against criticism from his own party.

"We had such a concrete election program like never before," he said on Wednesday at a conference of the Berlin CDU members.

The CDU state chairman, who ran as the top candidate in the House of Representatives election, had to face numerous critical questions and comments.

Berlin - There was talk of “sleeping car election campaigns” and “lousy election campaigns”.

One member criticized that superficiality had become the CDU's undoing.

In particular, the CDU did not attack the SPD clearly enough.

Wegner admitted that it had been difficult to stand up to the strategy of the SPD top candidate Franziska Giffey, because she had repeatedly copied the CDU program: “Ms. Giffey actually felt somehow taking over every point.

We talked about a restart, shortly afterwards the SPD launched a restart program, ”said Wegner.

"For years I have been calling for a round table for affordable living, all of a sudden the SPD is calling for it."
