Whilst Fokus did not win a mandate in either the municipal elections or the parliamentary elections, the party is not giving up, which became clear at its congress.

According to the party, 100 people were present on Saturday. Two election campaigns are now behind them, with the party receiving 2.5 percent of the vote in the national elections.

Now the party wants to put its state support to good use in order to maximize the result in the next elections.

Among other things, Marc Ruppert was confirmed as party president during the congress, and Frank Engel as party spokesperson. There were no opposing candidates. Anne Winter or Gary Kneip will become Secretary General.

Also noteworthy was the fact that there was no criticism of the new CSV-DP government on Saturday morning. The party would like to accompany the government's work constructively and wait and see how the program is implemented.
