Germany’s governing party rejects vote on chancellor candidate

Germany’s governing Christian Democrats (CDU) have rejected a proposal to have a formal vote on their next candidate for chancellor.

The party leader, currently Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, is traditionally chosen as the party’s chancellor candidate. But a series of election setbacks and poor polls have put Kramp-Karrenbauer’s political future in doubt.

She issued an ultimatum to her critics during the conference on Friday, and she was also against the rejected proposal for a vote on the chancellor candidate, backed mainly by the party’s youth wing, the Junge Union.
