Güstrow / Schwerin (dpa / mv) - The CDU state chairman Michael Sack will lead his party as a top candidate in the upcoming state election campaign.

Sack received 139 votes at the list party conference in Güstrow on Saturday, 150 representatives were entitled to vote.

Eight representatives voted no.

CDU parliamentary group leader Wolfgang Waldmüller then handed him a white T-shirt with a big one.

"We are now heading towards September," emphasized Sack.

The 150 party members met in the sports and congress hall under pandemic conditions.

In addition to the list for the state elections, the list for the federal election should also be determined in the afternoon.

Member of the Bundestag Philipp Amthor is the favorite in first place.

Both elections are scheduled for September 26th.

In his speech at the opening of the party congress, Sack campaigned for the resolutions of the Prime Minister's conferences to be implemented in the fight against the corona pandemic.

“Of course, as a federal state, we can take a special route and pretend that the resolutions don't exist.

The fact is that none of the special paths our country has taken so far has really worked. "

The people in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania are not smarter or more disciplined than the other Germans.

That is why he thinks it is right to stick to what is agreed in Berlin.
