Horst Seehoffer has asked for resignation from both Interior Minister and head of CSU posts, Bild reported. Further details about Seehofer's decision remain unknown, the outlet said.
Seehofer reportedly decided to resign amid the ongoing coalition conflict on the migration issue with the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) headed by Chancellor Angela Merkel. Seehofer proposed to deny entry to the country for migrants without documents or who have already failed to get asylum in Germany. The interior minister believes that Berlin should act unilaterally. Merkel, meanwhile, calls for the common EU solution of the migration issue.
On Sunday, the CDU and the CSU discussed during the inter-party sessions the ways to overcome the government crisis.
The European Council agreed during the recent summit on several EU migration policy aspects. Among others, the establishment of "regional disembarkation platforms in close cooperation with relevant third countries" and controlled centers in the EU member states were agreed. The resettlement or relocation of migrants across is expected to be a voluntary issue.
