Germany's CDU to choose leader on April 25

Outgoing Germany's Christian Democratic Union (CDU) Chairwoman Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer stated on Monday that a congress to choose the new party leader will be held on April 25.

She added that all potential leadership hopefuls may submit their candidacies during this week. Kramp-Karrenbauer also said the chairperson elected by the congress will most likely run as CDU's candidate for chancellor in the next German federal election, expected to be held between August and October 2021.

Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer succeded German Chancellor Angela Merkel in the party leadership role and was expected to run as the party's candidate for chancellor before resigning earlier this month.
