The election party of the CDU at the Düsseldorf party headquarters was visited by the public order office on Sunday evening – because the celebration was too loud. A city spokesman for the German Press Agency confirmed on Monday that “due to complaints from residents about noise pollution”, the public order office’s forces were deployed to the election party around 10:30 p.m.
“It was determined on site that the music was actually far too loud. Those responsible were instructed and asked to turn off the music,” said the spokesman. According to a spokeswoman, the police had also received a complaint about the volume. They were passed on to the responsible regulatory office.
After the surprisingly high forecast for the CDU at 6 p.m., the mood among the 400 guests of the CDU was already boisterous. When Prime Minister Hendrik Wüst (CDU) came to the party tent at the party headquarters at around 10:15 p.m., he was celebrated with “Schalalala” chants. According to WDR, the music was sometimes turned so loud that the power went out. A little later the clerk came.
