It speaks to the internal split in the CDU, told radio Sputnik, a senior researcher at the Department of European political studies, IMEMO, Primakov named Fyodor Basov.

In his opinion, we are talking about the differences between the conservative wing of the party and more progressive, which is Merkel. In addition, there are attempts to unite the party, drew the attention of the expert.

“Yes, the old parties are losing popularity, is now gaining strength and nationalists, and “green”. So, of course, there will be some changes in the party-political system of Germany”, – he said.
