North Rhine-Westphalia’s Prime Minister, Armin Laschet, has met his wife once when they Sing. “My father-in-law had a youth choir in the parish community, because it was a matter of honor, to be part of it. I was a Tenor and have fallen in love very quickly in my wife. She sang better, but that is not what it was,“ he said in an Interview with the magazine “Bunte”. Even today, he like to sing. “Singing is sociable.”

The family “is me, since I don’t need to be a politician”

For the 57-Year-old, who is married to his wife Susanne (56) for many years, and has three children, the family is of the utmost importance. “She carries me, since I don’t have to be a politician, always a non-binding opinion.”

Many people consider the CDU-politician as too friendly and too nice. Laschet defended his behavior in the interview: “I am the way I am. But I also believe that the voters do not want aggressive, polarizing politicians who revile each other.“ With it, you could argue hard, but, just in case. “A friendly approach, I would like to keep.” After 18 months as Prime Minister, he regards the task as “very challenging” and the subject “serious”. But he’ll always be the Rhine countries. It is a pleasure for him, if he is perceived as cheerful. “For me, it is just normal. My office is fun.“
