CDU's Laschet to resign as NRW head

Christian Democratic Union (CDU) interim head Armin Laschet (pictured) announced on Saturday that he will quit as the Minister-President of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) in the wake of the party's election loss.

"The responsibility for this result lies with me as leader and candidate for the chancellorship," Laschet asserted during a speech in Munster.

Laschet previously said that he is prepared to also quit as the head of CDU.
