The German Liberal Democratic Party (LDPD) made a number of proposals for change from mid-October 1989 onwards. Unlike the East German CDU, its leadership was willing to make reforms. In the CDU, changes were only possible once members’ protests had forced the long-running chairman to resign. Der Morgen, party newspaper of the LDPD, 13 October 1989: “Paving the way for freedom”.
