The new chairman of the CDU parliamentary group in Saxony-Anhalt, Guido Heuer, excludes technical and political cooperation with the AfD and the left. "There will be no cooperation with the AfD for us as a group. Three exclamation marks behind it or even more," said Heuer on Friday in Magdeburg. The motto "set boundaries, but don't exclude them" stays the same. "Furthermore, there will be no cooperation with the left-wing faction for us as a parliamentary group. We clearly differentiate ourselves to the right and to the left." Rather, the goal is to advance the positions of the CDU.
This year was elected faction leader at the end of August. The CDU is the strongest faction in the state parliament. Together with the SPD and FDP, it currently forms the state government. The AfD is the second largest group in parliament.
