nice to meet you.
May I introduce myself: I am the leader of the Free Democratic Party as well as its chairman of the parliamentary group in the state legislature of North Rhine-Westphalia.
So what does it mean to be a Free Democrat? We have a clear vision for shaping Germany's future to better serve all its people. We strongly believe that both individual and social development need freedom in order to grow. That is why we seek to apply the concepts of liberalism to confront the challenges and opportunities of globalization.
Our core concepts include human rights, the rule of law, free trade, a strong social market economy and equal chances for all. Under the banner of "German Courage," we strive to empower individuals to pursue innovative courses, instead of the typical "German Angst" and stagnation.
On this website you will find detailed information about my work and the activities of the Free Democrats. Current events and coverage are generally in German – feel free to address any inquiries regarding supplemental English information to me at any time.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like to share feedback.
Thank you for your visit and best regards,
