German Conservatives After Merkel: Campaign Briefing on Germany's 2021 Federal Elections and the New CDU Leader

German conservatives are heading into their first federal election in 15 years without the iconic Angela Merkel as leader of the governing CDU/CSU party coalition. With the country at the center of Europe, the European Union, and NATO, German elections drive Europe's politics.

Join American and German conservatives for a special briefing on what German conservatives are planning to win a governing majority in the September 2021 federal elections.

The CDU Party Congress is scheduled for January 16 when the new CDU leader will be elected. The new CDU leader will be competing with CSU leader/Bavarian prime minister Markus Söder who will run as Spitzenkandidat at the federal elections in September and most likely become new chancellor.

This webinar on January 19 will be the first discussion after the CDU Party Congress and will feature influential CDU, CSU, and IDU policy makers.

Register today for this timely and insightful discussion!
