Our Europe is a Europe for the people — for this the CDU and CSU are working together!

Today I am traveling in northern Germany. My first stop took me to Rostock: At the invitation of the Ostsee-Zeitung, I answered citizens’ questions at the ‘’Political Salon’’: the control and management of migration, the relationships with our neighbours, prospects for Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania or the EU’s being closer to citizens — many issues were raised during our exchange. As the common lead candidate of the CDU and CSU political parties, it is important to me to listen to people and take their concerns seriously. My goal is to bring Europe back to the people. Europe is a Europe of the people!


The journey carried on further north, to Husum in Schleswig-Holstein, to the Spring reception of CDU North Friesland. Together with the Prime Minister of Schleswig-Holstein, Daniel Günther, and with Astrid Damerow and Niclas Herbst, we made it clear: It is about a Europe of the citizens, not a left-wing or a nationalist Europe. For this the CDU and CSU are working together!
