"We try to elect the chairperson in any case," said a spokeswoman for the party to the "Handelsblatt" (Monday edition). The board of directors will decide this Monday how the party congress will take place in Erfurt.
The discussion is that the candidates will present themselves digitally and that the on-site election will be made by the delegates. "It will definitely not go as planned," said the spokeswoman. At the beginning of October, the Bundestag had made digital party conferences possible, including resolutions ?? in pandemic times even with board elections. It is therefore possible to vote by post or to vote in different places.
