CSU politician: Bavaria's former state parliament president Stamm died

Bavaria's former state parliament president Barbara Stamm (CSU) is dead. She died on Wednesday at the age of 77 in her hometown of Würzburg, as the Bavarian state parliament announced, citing the Stamms family circle. She died after a long illness.

Stamm headed the Bavarian state parliament from 2008 to 2018. She was the first woman to hold this office. She was a member of the state parliament for a total of 42 years and was also a member of the state government for more than 13 years, including as state secretary and minister and from 1998 to 2001 as deputy prime minister. In 2009 she made her breast cancer diagnosis public.

"I am deeply affected by the news of the death of my predecessor," said Ilse Aigner, President of the State Parliament (CSU). "With Barbara Stamm, we are losing a politician who is popular and highly esteemed across all party lines, who for decades worked primarily for the poorer and weaker in our society and gave them a voice."
