Edmund Stoiber

He conveyed Bavarian self-confidence and self-image in an exemplary manner and far beyond the borders of his homeland - to the delight of some and the annoyance of others. Edmund Stoiber, Bavaria's premier for many years and CSU chairman, has had a decisive influence on Bavarian politics and the German debate. Distinctive to curious speeches and public appearances brought Stoiber great, if sometimes dubious popularity. In the Chancellor's race he suffered a fate similar to that of his mentor Franz Josef Strauß - Stoiber lost to Schröder and let himself be carried away by the little subtle statements he made against East Germans. When his party had no more use for someone who could not give the CSU the absolute majority, he went to Brussels to cut red tape. We have prepared Stoiber's political career for you in image dossiers.
