The heart of political work of the CDU in Emmerich am Rhein
Almost every Monday at 18:00, the faction assembly meets in the large council chamber for consultation. This consists of the faction committee, the elected council members of the CDU and competent citizens and permanent guests. Apart from preparing for the upcoming committee and council meetings, current topics from Emmerich and the surrounding area are always discussed at the faction assemblies. In the faction assembly we develop our ideas and visions for the future of our home town together. Despite all of that, there is usually time for some small talk afterwards…
Furthermore, the CDU faction is regularly “out of office”. Whether inspecting current construction measures, visiting clubs, associations or Emmerich companies – we look around, take care of things, have conversations and have our finger on the pulse.

The faction chairperson and the faction committee prepare the work of the faction assembly, manage ongoing business and are elected by the faction every three years. The chairperson leads the meetings of the faction assembly and represents it externally.
The council faction includes the elected council members of the CDU Emmerich am Rhein, who were elected for the legislature period 2014-2020 in Emmerich and districts. Therefore, they represent approx. 40% of the votes cast in the last local election.
Alongside the elected council members, parties can also delegate “competent citizens” to the committees. This option should also serve to obtain additional expertise in the committees. The competent citizens have full voting rights in the committee. The CDU faction makes full use of this opportunity, and is proud of the active and comprehensive support from our “competent citizens”:
