Markus Söder’s new cabinet list is said to be finalized before 10 a.m. today. The names of the new CSU ministers or secretaries of state will be first known to 84 CSU delegates. Soder wanted to “refine” the cabinet to make his team more powerful ahead of next year’s state elections.
Interior Secretary Gerhard Eck, Construction Minister Kerstin Schreier, Science Minister Bernd Chipler and Social Affairs Minister Carolina Tratner are said to be unstable candidates. Current CSU general secretary Markus Blume, president of the Women’s Association and former environment minister Ulrike Scharf, but Deggendorf district administrator Christian Bernreiter are new to the cabinet. Two as Home Secretary, for example as Home Minister Joachim Herman or as Minister of Buildings.
Söder regional proportional representation and the quota for women should be taken into account
Loyal Söder supporter and Minister of Agriculture Michaela Kaniber could become CSU general secretary. Soder’s difficulty in all respects: regional representation and quotas for women must be balanced, and many disappointed that neither he nor the CSU helped in the state election. After the press conference at 11 a.m., the newcomers will take office at the state level at 1 p.m.
