Today one year ago the biggest conservative party in Europe agreed that "awarding of contracts and funding will be subject to compliance with the principles of open source and open standards for all (public) digitisation projects in Germany in the future" https://fsfe.org/news/2019/news-20191125-01.en.html
Really? This very same party has commited today to use Microsoft Office 365 in schools for teaching purposes. Pupils and parents are expected to accepts this move. Even if they have privacy concerns.
The mentioned "CDU decision to make Free Software mandatory" is either fake news or junk news. Or both. They should do as they tell, not as they do.
