At first nothing was known about Altmaier’s exact state of health. The 63-year-old has been Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy since March 2018. He is a close confidante of Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) and was previously head of the Federal Chancellery and Federal Environment Minister.

Altmaier has completed numerous appointments in the election campaign in the past few days and weeks. He will run again in the constituency of Saarlouis in Saarland. Altmaier has been a member of the German Bundestag since 1994.

On Monday morning Altmaier had taken part in an event organized by the Federation of German Industry in Berlin and gave a speech. It was about a German “spaceport”. Small launch vehicles are to be launched into space via a floating launch platform in the North Sea. (dpa)
