Several candidates took part in the election campaign, including the former head of the parliamentary faction Friedrich Merz and the head of the Bundestag foreign policy committee Norbert Röttgen.

Earlier at the congress of the CDU delegates Laschet said that he would not allow right-wing terrorists to stir up protests and unrest in Germany, reports TASS. He recalled last year's events, when protests began in Berlin due to the restrictions imposed by the authorities on the coronavirus.
