The FAZ has reported (german), that the delegates of the CDU might remain seated instead of giving their vote in the planned election of Andrea Ypsilanti to prime minister of Hessen on coming Tuesday. This is in acount of preventing them from giving their vote for the wrong party by mistake.

“The 42 delegates of the Union, so the conderation, might remain seated after being called to give their vote. This way it could be ensured, that nobody would give a vote for the candidate of the SPD by mistake, said a member of the faction, who preferred to be not named.”

If that is true, I would recommend to stay down completely. Those who would have such grave lack of political trade, should rather take another year of training. But not in the state parliament then.
