Michael Weickert (29) will compete in the state election next year as a direct candidate in constituency 30 (Leipzig-West). In a fight vote, he sat down on Saturday morning with 18:17 votes just against Cornelia Blattner (54) by.
Michael Weickert has narrowly prevailed at the CDU nomination event for the state elections next year against Cornelia Blattner. The 29-year-old teacher student attained 18 out of 35 valid votes, the 54-year graduate economist came only 17 votes. Thus, Weickert can compete in the constituency 30 (Altlindenau, Böhlitz-Ehrenberg, Leutzsch, Lindenau, Lützschena-Stahmeln, Neulindenau, Plagwitz and Schleußig).
The tight vote was preceded by a passionate debate among the members. It was also about the question of whether the CDU Leipzig in one of the electoral districts should not also set up a woman as a direct candidate. However, Weickert scored points with clear and clear positions and a rhetorically strong performance. He wanted to start the election campaign immediately, he explained.
