More relief, spending on energy and security, and getting out of the debt trap: all of this calls for it. The CSU parliamentary group in the Bundestag wants to show what it should look like at Kloster Banz.

The CSU state group in the Bundestag comes together for their traditional summer retreat in the Banz monastery in Bad Staffelstein. The two-day consultations will focus on the topics of energy and security. CSU party leader Markus Söder will join the members of the Bundestag around regional group leader Alexander Dobrindt at today’s start. On Thursday, the CDU chairman and Union faction leader Friedrich Merz is expected at the historic site in Upper Franconia.
