The Christian Democrats (CDU) did not find a suitable candidate while last week the Social Democrats (SPD) pulled a heretofore unknown young man out of the hat.
This handsome non-party guy called Martin Horn is the only serious contender to Dieter and attracted all the attention. Here are some photos:
