New local leaders

The leadership renewal within the SED continues. The regions Erfurt, Halle and Karl-Marx-Stadt (aka Chemnitz) elected new regional SED leaders. In Chemnitz, Norbert Kertscher replaces Siegfried Lorenz, who was only elected a few days ago. In Erfurt, Herbert Kroker replaces Gerhard Müller, and in Halle, Roland Claus replaced Hans-Joachim Böhme, who was known as a socialist hardliner.
