Christian Käs (born August 31, 1960 in Stuttgart ; † September 29, 2015 there ) was a German lawyer and politician ( REP ).

Professional background

Käs attended the Free Waldorf School in Kräherwald in Stuttgart , graduated from high school in 1980, then studied law in Würzburg , first state examination in 1986, from 1986 to 1987 basic military service in Ulm . Until 1990 traineeship training in Baden-Württemberg , 2nd state examination in 1990 in Stuttgart. He has worked as a lawyer since 1990.

Political career

From 1989 to 1991 he was state secretary of the Republicans , from 1991 to 2002 state chairman of the party, from 1992 to 2002 deputy federal chairman, from 1992 to 1996 member of the Republican parliamentary group in the Stuttgart municipal council, during this time also chairman of the parliamentary group. From April 19, 1996 to May 31, 2001 he was a member of the state parliament in Baden-Wuerttemberg (second mandate constituency Rottweil ) during this time also deputy chairman of the REP parliamentary group in the state parliament of Baden-Wuerttemberg and deputy chairman of the internal committee there.

While he initially belonged to the more moderate wing of the party, from around the mid-1990s he criticized the party's course of demarcation towards the far right and thus, as Baden-Württemberg's state chairman, became the most influential inner-party opponent of Rolf Schlierer .

The conflicts between him and Schlierer came to a head in early 2002. Financial irregularities in the Baden-Württemberg state association were taken as an opportunity to have Käs removed from his office as state chairman on February 10, 2002 by the federal executive committee. A short time later, Käs left the party under protest.
