CDU politician Nopper new Lord Mayor of Stuttgart – Stuttgart & Region


Stuttgart (dpa / lsw) – The CDU candidate Frank Nopper has won the mayoral election in Stuttgart. The 59-year-old received 42.3 percent of the votes in the second ballot on Sunday, as the city of Stuttgart announced. He succeeds the Green politician Fritz Kuhn, who no longer wanted to run for election. Nopper’s strongest competitor, Marian Schreier, won 36.9 percent of the vote – a respectable success for the 30-year-old, who entered the race as an independent candidate.

After his victory, Nopper emphasized that he wanted to be a “mayor for everyone”. He announced on the local broadcaster Stuggi.TV that he wanted to speed up and reduce bureaucracy in administrative procedures. He also wants to promote renovations and digitization at the Stuttgart schools. Nopper spoke of an “hour of departure to a Stuttgart that no longer remains below its possibilities”. “Stuttgart should shine more in the region, in Germany and in Europe.”
