No Parole for Akif Pirinçci

Akif Pirinçci is a Turkish-German fiction writer who in recent years has taken up social and political commentary. Based on Turkish orthography, Mr. Pirinçci’s surname is pronounced “Pirinsky”, which indicates that his family is of Slavic origin. His ancestors may have been Bulgarians who were absorbed into the Ottoman Empire during its conquests, and converted to Islam (possibly forcibly).

Over the past ten years Mr. Pirinçci’s activities have been featured here on multiple occasions, including:

It looks like Akif Pirinçci’s luck may have run out at last: he has been sentenced to nine months in prison for saying doubleplus ungood things (not sure what the correct formulation would be in Neusprech) about the New Germans.

Akif Pirinçci sentenced to prison for “incitement against migrants”

The writer Akif Pirinçci was sentenced to prison for using derogatory names against immigrants. He has now been sentenced to nine months in prison for incitement to hatred.

Akif Pirinçci was sentenced to nine months in prison on Monday. The writer, who is known, among other things, for his cat crime novels, must now go to prison for sedition because he agitated against migrants, said the judge in justifying the verdict. Pirinçci sees his statements as covered by freedom of expression.

The background is a contribution on his private blog “The Little Akif” from 2022. In it, Pirinçci was upset about, among other things, “Muslims or Afros” who would “continue to multiply like microbes”. He also described them as “parasites” in “state welfare institutions”.

The judge further explained that this text incites hatred of migrants. In addition, it represents an attack on human dignity. With nine months in prison, the judge’s verdict even exceeded the sentence demanded by the public prosecutor’s office. They had asked for seven months.

Pirinçci’s lawyer now wants to file an appeal. Not every criticism of refugees or borderline statement is sedition; not everything that doesn’t please everyone automatically constitutes a criminal offense, he argued in court. He believes he has a greater chance of a more lenient verdict at the Federal Court of Justice.

It is not the first time that Pirinçci has been convicted of sedition. The writer was sentenced to a fine back in 2017, because in an public address he spoke, among other things, of “Muslim garbage dumps”.

Strengthening Democracy Means Crushing the Right Wing

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from Junge Freiheit. The translator’s comments are in square brackets:

“Dismantle networks, drain financial sources”

Interior Minister Faeser is pushing for a democracy promotion law

Federal Interior Minister Faeser is determined to push a democracy promotion law through the Bundestag. Right now it is “high time” to strengthen the work of “civil society initiatives”. Critics suspect something different.

Berlin

Federal Interior Minister Nancy Faeser (SPD) has called for the rapid introduction of a democracy promotion law. It is currently more important than ever to strengthen associations and people “who make our democracy strong and vibrant,” said Faeser to the Rheinische Post. [I guess she means ANTIFA and DİTİB — Turkish-Islamic Union for Religious Affairs] According to the minister, it is “high time” to financially support the “countless civil society initiatives”.

According to the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, the law is intended to provide more funding for associations that say they are committed to democracy and against extremist activities. [I take it that she means by “extremists” those farmers and normal people who fear for the safety of their families because of insane government policies and the cultural enrichment spree by invading marauders from hostile “cultures”.] The draft law was presented by Interior Minister Faeser and Family Minister Lisa Paus (Greens) in 2022; the Bundestag has not yet voted on it.

Faeser praises anti-right demonstrations

Criticism of the planned law came primarily from the Union [CDU/CSU] and AfD. They fear that under the guise of combating extremism, the federal government will only support projects that are close to their own worldview. The Union and the AfD also criticize the fact that there is no extremism clause in the draft law that checks projects for their constitutionality. [Well, that would disqualify the entire German government and all the old political parties] They fear that left-wing lobby groups will be financed in the name of promoting democracy. [10 points for grasping immediately what this self-serving “law” is all about.]

Meanwhile, Faeser praised the anti-right demonstrations last weekend. The fact that “so many people take a stand and fight” even in small towns and in East Germany is “an encouragement and a mandate at the same time.” Faeser believes that German citizens expect the state to “protect all those who are subjected to racism, exclusion and hatred.” To achieve this, the Interior Minister wants to “dismantle right-wing extremist networks, drain their financial sources, take away their weapons and harshly prosecute agitators and violent criminals.” [And here we can clearly see where the hare lies buried in pepper. This “law” is only aimed against people who fight for their freedom, livelihood and safety of their loved ones from ideological retarded haters of everything that is German.]

The Office for the Protection Against Hans-Georg Maaßen


Dr. Hans-Georg Maaßen is the former head of the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution in Germany — the state intelligence service. He is now the president of the Values Union (WerteUnion), a non-profit organization whose motto is “Freiheit statt Sozialismus” (“Freedom instead of Socialism”).

I’ve posted several times in the past about Dr. Maaßen (most recently here, earlier posts: #1, #2, #3, #4). He says commonsensical things about immigration and Islamization, which has made him the target of official scrutiny by his former agency. It looks like he has become an Enemy of the State.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from Tichys Einblick. The translator’s comments are in square brackets:

The Office for the Protection of the Constitution is monitoring Hans-Georg Maaßen

The state is mobilizing against the opposition. Germany’s domestic secret service is rolling out heavy guns against the head of the Union of Values, Hans-Georg Maaßen. The justification for the office is downright silly. Maaßen himself speaks of an “attack on the free, democratic basic order”.

The Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution lists its former president Hans-Georg Maaßen as a so-called “observation case”. This is stated in an official decision from the authority, which has now been officially sent to Maaßen’s lawyers and which Maaßen himself published [PDF].

This confirms information from TE from last week. The current head of the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution, Thomas Haldenwang (CDU), had already announced in a background conversation with journalists that his office had “parts of the Union of Values and the fraternities” spied on.

Haldenwang said at the meeting: First you look at Twitter, then you create a file — and then you carry on.

Formally, the domestic secret service has now at least created the conditions for using intelligence resources against its former boss. With the approval of the so-called “G10 Commission” of the Bundestag, Maaßen’s correspondence could then even be monitored and his telephone tapped.

The background is the enormously expanded options that the Office for the Protection of the Constitution has been given against so-called “delegitimizers of the state”. Practically anyone who criticizes state institutions or people in state office may now be considered (and prosecuted) as such.

The first three reasons given by the office itself for classifying Maaßen as an observation case show how arbitrarily the Office for the Protection of the Constitution acts in this regard:

Islam: Abolition of Civilisation, Part II

Our Indian correspondent The Kafir sends this follow-up to last week’s essay about Islam.

Islam: Abolition of Civilisation (Part II)

by The Kafir

In the year 1988, Salman Rushdie’s novel The Satanic Verses was published. Khomeini issued the fatwa. Salman Rushdie was a British citizen. The UK government immediately forced him into hiding, with heavy police protection. The UK had its Muslims. There was no way to know who among them might kill Rushdie. A mob could have come and lynched him. The British knew all this.

If the British knew all this, one might expect they would figure out all the logical things which followed from the affair: Muslims do not respect the West’s concept of free speech, there is no way to find out which Muslim is a potential killer of a blasphemer, and Muslims become mobs for the most outrageous of causes. Therefore, if the UK wanted to keep its free speech rights, it needed to stop Muslim immigration.

In fact, this should have been done by all the Western countries. Instead they opened the gates wider. They even encouraged Muslim immigration, legal and illegal. For example, Tony Blair. And Angela Merkel.


How did the West reach this point? The times when the elites of the most educated, advanced, prosperous, and happy countries of the West want to destroy the countries they are ruling? And the citizenry seem to be just clapping along?

The answer is that in the nineteenth century a man was born named Karl Marx. He confused the masses, and he frightened the elites. He misunderstood the source of wealth, let the masses loose on the elite, and they started making compromises, and now know nothing except making compromises, with anybody who threatens violence.


Burnham understood that Marxism/Communism/Leftism was also the abolition of morality: ‘“Dialectical logic.” Is simply a devise that declares “whatever serves the interest of communist power is true.” (Burnham quoted in the introduction to Suicide of The West, written by Roger Kimball [page 11, Kindle edition]). And the liberals ruling the West are Marxists lite. They know no absolute morality. It is all relative for them. Therefore, they now have different moral laws for different sections of society.

They started with the industrial workers. According to the leftists, the industrial workers are an exploited lot; therefore they are entitled to use violence. Normal laws of morality do not apply to them. They can picket the industrial plant, can wreck it, can even kill the owners. Because they are exploited. The ruling elites gave in. Perhaps they were afraid that if the workers were not allowed to burn down the industrial plant, they might march to parliament building and burn it instead. This was the first exemption from the moral laws granted by the civilized, and it has been downhill ever since. It led to the destruction of industrial plants in the West and rise of the Dependency Class. Work has this profound magical quality that it creates character in the men doing it. Without work, on welfare, Western people lost that character. Word also got around that being a ‘victim’ or ‘oppressed’ gives one exemption from the moral laws. Liberals began manufacturing ‘victim classes’, and people happily joined, because, well, who wants to be burdened with the morality?

The End of Free Speech and Thought in Europe

The Deep State oligarchs who manage the European Union are absolutely determined that the serfs, peons, and other Untermenschen of Europe must be silenced by any means necessary. Those ignorant yokels have no business meddling in affairs of state, which must be left to their betters to run as they see fit — and all for the good of the “people”, of course.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from the Austrian portal Heimatkurier. The translator’s comments are in square brackets:

EU censorship law: “Hate speech” on a par with terrorism and human trafficking

Through a resolution by the EU Parliament, laws against “hate speech” are to be introduced in all EU countries. But the ostensible “fight against hate” aims to censor and suppress the political opposition and its supporters. At this year’s WEF meeting in Davos, resolutions were also passed to massively expand censorship. On January 18, the EU Parliament passed a new law that makes so-called “hate speech” a crime throughout the EU.

The vote was clear in the left-center dominated parliament: 397 yes votes, 121 no votes and 26 abstentions.

“Hate speech” is equated with terrorism

The decision puts so-called “hate speech” on the EU crime list. This allows the European Commission to introduce binding legislation and penalties for all member states. The list actually only includes crimes that have a “cross-border interest” in combating them, such as terrorism, human trafficking or cartel crime. This puts people who post politically unpleasant content on the Internet on the same level as terrorists and drug cartel gangsters. The EU has already threatened social media platforms with sanctions and regulations. [And that comes out of the mouth from one of the biggest terrorist and human trafficking organizations on the planet and against their own people. Go figure.]

“Hate speech”: A vague definition

This massive expansion of thought paragraphs serves the sole purpose of persecuting politically disapproved people and opinions. The official statement already gives an idea of these intentions. It is said that hate speech is “a danger to society as a whole because it undermines the foundations of the EU”. The definition of alleged hate crimes is up in the air and can be interpreted in any way. Basically, anything that a person perceives as offensive or hurtful may be interpreted as hate speech and can therefore soon be charged. There are no clear definitions or control bodies. [That’s the whole point with these so-called LAWS. They are not designed to protect the people, but rather the parasites in politics and society.]

Will gender criticism soon lead to a stretch in prison?

According to the current definition, “criminal discrimination” refers to the alleged denigration of origin, ethnicity or religion. However, left-liberal law makers want to massively expand this definition because, in their eyes, it is no longer up-to-date. In the future, any alleged discrimination against sexuality, sex and gender characteristics, trans identities as well as age and disability would also constitute a criminal offense. It is impossible to predict who will be targeted by the muzzle paragraph. This may affect people who criticize the adoption rights for homosexuals as well as critics of drag queen reading lessons in kindergartens.

Time to Take Off the Rose-Colored Glasses

The two videos below discuss the remarks made by a former French intelligence agent, who has sparked a controversy with his statements about the inevitable Islamization of France, and all of Europe.

RAIR Foundation provides this background for the videos:

Former DGSE (General Directorate for External Security) agent Pierre Martinet, who served in a specialized French intelligence agency, delivered a chilling warning about the impending Islamic threat to Europe in an interview on the Les Bâtisseurs podcast.

Martinet, a veteran of the 3rd Marine Infantry Parachute Regiment (3e RPIMa), foresees a terrifying future where Europe faces complete Islamization within the next 50-70 years. The portion of the interview presented below unravels the profound ideological threat posed by Islam, particularly the role of the Muslim Brotherhood, in the unsettling transformation of Europe. Watch the video, which has been translated into English by RAIR Foundation USA, to gain a deep understanding of this alarming prediction and the urgent threat it raises.

Islam: Abolition of Civilisation

After an extended sabbatical, our Indian correspondent The Kafir returns with an overview of the civilization-destroying ideology that is Islam.

Islam: Abolition of Civilisation

by The Kafir

“Moreover, whatever may be the respective crimes, virtues and deserts of various races, classes and nations, civilized society requires a certain rule and order to hold back from the edge of anarchic savagery where it is always precariously poised. Human beings must have at least a minimum security in life and property, must be able to move through the streets and between the cities, must accept certain common rules in their mutual inter-course, or civilization does not exist. If this necessary order is subverted, the civilization is destroyed, whether the subversion take place from the best or worst of motives, whether or not it is in some supposedly moral sense justified, whether it is carried out by saints or devils. At some point the guardians of a civilization must be prepared to draw the line.” — James Burnham (Suicide of The West, page 227 [Kindle edition])

Human perception is a very strange thing. Man’s mind may have perceived everything needed to visit the moon. But sometimes it may fail to see the most obvious, glaring thing, not for a few moments or days, but for centuries.

What exactly is Islam? A man born in the Arabian city of Mecca around 1400 years ago claimed that he had been contacted by the God who created this world, had been given a book, and had been commanded to preach that man should worship only that God, in formlessness. So far so good.

Each of us believes so many claims by our fellow men. Men are totally free to believe this man also. They are fully entitled to believe that he was a messenger of God, and should worship God the way he said He should be worshipped. There is no problem so far. The world will go about its business, some nations will have good rulers and hence will be rich, others which have not so good rulers will remain poor. There will be aid for the starving.

But that man said something else also. He said that his fellow men had no choice in the matter. They Must either believe that he was a messenger of God, and worship the way he said, or they ‘will have no security in life and property, will not be able to move safely through the streets and between the cities, and his followers are bound by no rules in their mutual intercourse with non-believers.’ (James Burnham paraphrased) That is, he abolished Civilisation. He abolished the moral laws that make Civilisation possible. (Qur’an 8.39, 9.5, 9.29 and hadith Bukhari 1.2.24).

Kafirs have made mistakes in their response to him from the very first day he proclaimed his mission. They did not figure out his true intentions, and they did not even translate his words properly. For example, jihad.

Jihad is variously translated as Holy War, warfare, or just war. But in a war, an army comes, challenges the army of the target country, the two armies fight, and the victorious army gains possession of the country. People start paying taxes to the new government. This is a war. The only way of war between the civilised countries.

Does this happen in jihad? No. From the very first “battle” the Muslims fought, jihad means something else entirely. In jihad, you can attack trade caravans, you can kill non-combatants, you can simply attack a home/village, kill all the men, rape women and sex-enslave them, and enslave children and trade them around like goods; and loot the goods of household. This is sanctioned in the Qur’an, this is sanctioned by the examples of early Muslims, this is sanctioned in hundreds of hadith, and there are whole chapters of sharia manuals devoted to detailing this. The only condition is that you have to share 20% of the looted women, children and goods with the leader of the moment, the Imam/Caliph/Amir.

Does it all sound like a war? This is actually dacoity.

Merriam Webster defines dacoity as “robbery by dacoits — now used in the Indian penal code of robbery by an armed gang of not less than five men” Dacoity is word taken into English from India. The synonym is robbery/loot. The same dictionary defines robbery as “larceny from the person or presence of another by violence or threat.” So the correct translation of jihad is dacoity/robbery. The man made dacoity/robbery lawful against those who did not believe him. He made dacoity/robbery a religious duty.*

And civilisations died. Wherever his followers went, the places they seized, civilisations died. Baghdad or Cordoba are paraded around as examples of Islamic civilisation. That is, Islam is claimed to have established civilisation of its own kind after it has conquered a non-Islamic civilisation. But what are the creations of Baghdad or Cordoba except some translations of Indian/Persian/ Greek texts? Any literature, science, architecture, paintings, roads, canals, dance forms, music, universities? Anything that we take as achievements of a civilisation? In reality, every Muslim kingdom meant only one thing: regular raids on the kafir villages and cities, the killing of men, the looting of women, children and household goods. That is, dacoity.

Creeping Sharia in the Schools of North Rhine-Westphalia

NRW [North Rhine-Westphalia] school committee debates sharia incident at Neuss school

January 17, 2024

The sharia incident in Neuss landed the school committee in the state parliament today. Pupils in one school reportedly have demanded strict Islamic rules.

by Benjamin Sartory

“Radicalism and extremism have no place in our school,” said NRW School Minister Dorothee Feller (CDU) at the start of the school committee session. The AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany) had requested a current update on the incidents in a Neuss school. Several pupils reportedly demanded strict Islamic rules there, including segregation of genders in class.

Pupils in Neuss wanted gender segregation

Reporting for the state government was the school crisis official within the School Ministry, Martin Oppermann. Accordingly, three of the four high school students contacted teachers last spring and showed “interest in a stricter interpretation of Islam”. In the school’s view, “statements critical of the state” were made, so they called in the police.

In a “creeping process”, the pupils then somehow tried to influence other pupils in their religious practice and create gender segregation. The school then took measures within the school, including, for example, providing information and the strengthening of students and teachers. In addition, the Ministry authorities were informed.

However, from the point of view of the Neuss school, associating the behavior of the pupils with the term, “sharia police” in no way affects the facts. Basically, the school feels it has been falsely presented publicly and they actually believe they are a functioning community.

State Security called in due to sharia pupils

Christian Blex (AfD) found the statements insufficient. He would have liked to know more about what exactly happened in the school, and also asked questions about the consequences for the pupils. “Was there at least a written reprimand?” Oppermann answered that one of the pupils was suspended from classes for one week.

“Every extremist is garbage,” said Franziska Mueller-Rech (FDP). However, she warned against exaggerating the incident. She doesn’t recognize a nationwide danger to the schools.

Dilek Engin (SPD) demanded that the school ministry cooperate more closely with the extremist prevention program “Guidepost”. The Neuss school finally addressed this. This program, incidentally, has had more to do lately, the state interior ministry said today.

Those High-Maintenance Migrants

It’s widely accepted that “migrants” are a net financial drain on any Western nation that decides to import them en masse. The following article reports on the research conducted by a German economist in an effort to quantify the amount of money lost due to all the cultural enrichment.

Raffelhüschen: Immigration costs €5.8 trillion

The pension and social expert Raffelhüschen calculates the overall economic price of immigration. He dispels a myth, and describes migration policy as “dumb as straw”.

Berlin

The economist Bernd Raffelhüschen has presented a calculation of how expensive immigration is for the German population. Accordingly, mass migration creates an overall economic hole of €5,800,000,000,000 — in short, €5.8 trillion. [I’d love to know how much of that money has ended — and is still ending up — in the offshore accounts of the political “migration” mafia?]

The Freiburg professor dispelled the myth, promoted by all established parties, that immigration saves pension and social security funds. According to Raffelhüschen, there is already a large gap in the aging German society between what employers and employees pay in taxes, nursing care, pension and health insurance contributions and what they will be paid out in the future, says Raffelhüschen.

According to the expert, this “sustainability gap” will grow to €19.2 trillion if Germany continues to accept 300,000 foreigners annually. On the other hand, if we no longer allowed migrants into the country, the number would only be €13.4 trillion. Immigration increases the hole by €5.8 trillion. Raffelhüschen: “That is the price of immigration in our current system.”

Raffelhüschen: Foreigners pay little

On average, migrants would need six years to integrate into the German labor market. During this time they have scarcely paid anything into the social system. But even after that, according to his study, which he prepared for the Market Economy Foundation, things will hardly get any better. Because they earned significantly less than their German colleagues due to a lack of qualifications. As a result, they also paid fewer taxes and duties. However, they received the same sickness, nursing and pension benefits.

Raffelhüschen explained: “Although the age structure of migrants potentially has a demographic rejuvenation dividend, this does not lead to a positive fiscal balance of migration in any of the scenarios considered.”

To illustrate his results, Raffelhüschen chose an example: “An asylum seeker comes to Germany at the age of 26, is rejected after two to three years, but remains here with tolerance. Then he gradually begins his first jobs, gets qualified and, at the age of 35, begins a career as a tax and contribution payer. Because his pension entitlement is low, he receives basic security as a pensioner — for which his contributions would never have been enough.”

Even skilled immigration brings a loss

The 66-year-old scientist, who once advised the federal government in the so-called “Rürup Commission,” said: “It doesn’t pay off. This is all far too expensive.” This year alone, the federal government is making almost €50 billion available in its budget for migration — not including the costs to the social system.

Raffelhüschen has calculated that even with an additional immigration of 100,000 trained skilled workers per year, Germany would still show a loss. The “sustainability gap” would then still be €14.2 trillion — and therefore €800 billion above the financing burden without any immigration.

Raffelhüschen found clear words for the migration policy pursued so far by both the Merkel and now Scholz governments: “If we carry on as before, we are dumb as straw!”

Deviant Opinions About Sexual Deviants Are Forbidden

“Incitement to hatred”: Trans-critical blogger targeted by police

The blogger Rona Duwe was summoned for identification and must face an investigation for “sedition” — all because the 53-year-old made critical comments about the transgender hype and the Self-Determination Act. Duwe is certain: she is to be “silenced”.

“Incitement to hatred” — Because of this accusation, the Dortmund police are conducting an investigation against the blogger Rona Duwe. And that was probably only because the 53-year-old had made critical comments about the transgender hype and the planned self-determination law on platforms such as X (formerly Twitter). For Duwe, this is an obvious “attempt to intimidate”.

On November 5, 2023, the mother of two and graphic designer received a letter from the police summoning her for an “identification procedure for preventive law-enforcement reasons”. She is accused of equating “transitioning people” and people with pedophilic tendencies and spreading negative comments about an association for trans and intersexual people.

Her lawyer, Roman Lammers, emphasizes that there is no legal basis for the summons because Duwe operates under her real name on the Internet and expresses her opinion openly. Duwe sees herself as the target of a political campaign to silence her. She argues that the identification subpoena is an attempt to intimidate. “I’m to be silenced because some people don’t like my opinion,” the blogger told Die Welt.

From November 2021 to May 2023, several investigations are said to have been conducted against Duwe — without the blogger, who has been “controversial” for years because of her critical views, knowing about it. Although she was informed about various complaints from trans activists, she was not informed of any investigations.

Duwe’s lawyer therefore contacted the police to clarify the matter, but according to Die Welt, he has not yet been able to access the files. Duwe’s only option now is to file a lawsuit against the identification process before the Gelsenkirchen Administrative Court.

AfD Supporters Must Be Silenced

As the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany) grows more and more popular, the German political establishment is becoming increasingly alarmed, in much the same way that the Deep State in the USA views the popularity of Donald Trump with growing dismay.

The solution, of course, is to crack down on AfD supporters who voice their opinions on social media.

Kretschmer calls for restrictions on “new media” due to high AfD polls

Current surveys show the AfD in Saxony with 37%, ahead of the Union [CDU (national) + CSU (Bavarian)]. The incumbent CDU Minister-President Michael Kretschmer sees social media as a reason for this and is therefore calling for strict regulation of the “new media”.

The latest survey results from Saxony have caused a stir in the political landscape in Germany. With 37%, the AfD would currently be the strongest force there — even ahead of the CDU. A great danger for the incumbent Minister-President Michael Kretschmer. At a New Year’s reception on Friday, the CDU politician blamed social media, among other things, for the Alternative for Germany’s current rise. [And I’m pretty sure that he would’ve blamed the Printing Press 500+ years ago, since it’s never their own fault that people turn away from them and their LIES.]

“We do not yet have an enlightened approach to these new media,” explained Kretschmer in a speech to the Saxony Industry Club. Kretschmer sees an explanation for this in the fact that many people in Saxony no longer regularly read daily newspapers, but rather get their information via social media. He calls for stronger regulation of the “new media”. [That’s funny, the propagators of darkness calling for enlightenment. I guess that’s going to be by striking a “lucifer” and lighting the faggots for an Auto da Fe with freedom at the stake.]

CDU is preparing for state elections

The AfD’s current poll numbers should be taken “seriously,” but the situation could still be changed, explained Kretschmer. Elections will take place in Saxony in September. The tone of all parties is becoming more tense. On Friday evening, during a closed meeting in Bad Schandau, the CDU state executive committee agreed on a proposal for the state list for the state elections on September 1st. Accordingly, Minister-President and party leader Michael Kretschmer will run as the top candidate in first place on the list.

The other places planned are Culture and Tourism Minister Barbara Klepsch, Secretary General Alexander Dierks, state parliament member Susan Leithoff, parliamentary group leader Christian Hartmann, as well as state parliament members Ines Saborowski, Georg-Ludwig von Breitenbuch and Sandra Gockel. Also on the list is Minister of Education Christian Piwarz. Oliver Schenk, head of the State Chancellery, was nominated as the Saxon CDU’s top candidate for the EU elections.

The final confirmation of the CDU lists for the state elections and the European elections is to take place at a representative meeting on January 20th in Dresden. There is a possibility that there will be opposing candidacies for some places on the list.
