Wolfgang Bosbach (born 11 June 1952 in Bergisch Gladbach, North Rhine-Westphalia) is a German politician and member of the conservative party, the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), which he joined in 1972. A lawyer by profession, Bosbach is a partner at Winter, Jansen & Lamsfuß in Bergisch Gladbach.

Political career[edit]

Bosbach has been a directly elected member of the Bundestag since 1994, representing Rheinisch-Bergischer Kreis, and the deputy parliamentary group leader of his party since 2000.

In August 2011, Bosbach became the first senior CDU MP to say he would not vote for legal changes to allow the European Financial Stability Facility to buy sovereign bonds on the market.[1] He later criticized the permanent rescue mechanism – called European Stability Mechanism – was a step toward a European transfer union.[2] In 2012, he told German business magazine Wirtschaftswoche that Greece should leave the euro region to overhaul its economy.[3]
