Successor Merkel make peace with zusterpartij after long-standing arguments about migration

The months of dissension between the German christian democratic party CDU and its more conservative regional zusterpartij CSU has been settled, as have leaders of the parties Saturday said.

Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, who is the leadership of the CDU last month took over the role of chancellor Angela Merkel, said that in the future there will undoubtedly be disagreements would be, but that the debates on the right place and with the right tone will be taken. “It will be an exciting ratio, but supported by clearly more agreements,” says Kramp-Karrenbauer.

Alexander Dobrindt, a leading CSU, said that the ‘collaborative competition’ between the two parties ‘always done well’, but that it was time to get the page to run after the recent disputes.

The conciliatory tone comes after a bitter openly dispute on migration last year, which the CSU tougher measures for asylum seekers demanded. The seven-decades-old alliance between the CDU and the CSU went almost at the bottom of the dispute.
