The former CDU general secretary Peter Tauber ended his political career. In a letter to the members of his constituency, the current Secretary of State for Defense announced that he would no longer run for the federal election in 2021. “After careful consideration, personal and family reasons prompted me to make this decision,” says the letter that the German press agency has received and which the Funke media group first reported on.
“It is not just my health situation that plays a role, but also the idea of looking for and accepting new professional challenges,” continues Tauber. It is no secret that family means a lot to him and that he sees the center of his life in Gelnhausen in Hesse. “In the long run, the task in Berlin is detrimental.”
Tauber was CDU General Secretary from 2013 to 2018. During this time he had campaigned against internal party resistance for an immigration law and dual citizenship. Both are now represented by the CDU.
The 46-year-old also campaigned to make the CDU “younger, more feminine and more colorful”. The opening of the party to lesbians and gays was also a matter of concern to him – the CDU’s structural and statutes committee is currently working to anchor lesbians and gays in the Union (LSU) as a so-called special organization with a permanent place in the party .
Tauber has been a CDU member since 1992, and from 2003 to 2009 he was state chairman of the Junge Union in Hesse. The historian with a doctorate has been in the Bundestag since October 2009.
