As a "mega-result" yesterday, the day after the federal election, dorothee bar described her performance in the constituency. After the first projection of 38 percent for the CSU, she herself had no longer expected a figure of more than 50 percent. "You can never completely escape a national trend", she says. She sees the fact that it ended up being the third-best first-past-the-post result in bavaria and the tenth-best in the whole of germany as a major success.
Yesterday in munich, bar spent several hours analyzing the outcome of the election together with the CSU executive committee. The fact that not a single candidate made it onto the bundestag list is something she very much regrets. Just on the list could be placed the candidates of young, women’s or middle class union. "In the case of a direct mandate, of course, it is not possible to ensure this balance." Bar herself entered the bundestag twice via the list before succeeding direct candidate eduard lintner in 2009.
"I really put my back into it," says bar, bar looks back on the strenuous election campaign. And it goes on: yesterday, after the board meeting, she went on the tv show "hart, aber fair" (tough but fair), today in berlin, among other things, the election of the head of the state group is on the agenda. According to bar, her current boss alexander dobrindt will take over. This has consequences: "if he becomes head of the regional party, he will not be part of the new government, is determined that the transport minister will not continue. However, she did not comment on what this means for her and whether she will remain parliamentary secretary of state. First of all, the coalition negotiations had to be conducted now. "Everyone has the duty to talk to everyone, she gives as a motto. "A lot of divisive and a lot of common", sees cash with the greens and the FDP, and: "it depends a lot on the content and the people involved."
