In an interview with the "Bild am Sonntag" newspaper, the head of the Bavarian Christian Social Union (CSU), the partner to Chancellor Merkel's CDU, has set out what he believes should be a central theme of the election campaign for the September federal vote. Bavarian premier Horst Seehofer said: "The CSU, together with the CDU, will make families with children a central election theme." "I have spoken with the chancellor on the subject several times," Seehofer added. "There should be a strong package of measures for a family-oriented offensive in Germany."
