Start8 November 1918

The Minister President of Bavaria is traditionally dominated by the conservative Christian Social Union (CSU), which has won every election since 1945. Thanks to the safe conservative, Christian (Catholic) rule, several of the Minister Presidents of Bavaria have been influential politicians, even deep state actors.

This is due to no small part to the many mulitnational companies based in Bavaria, including Adidas, Allianz, Audi, BMW, Brose, BSH Hausgeräte, HypoVereinsbank, Infineon, KUKA, MAN SE, MTU Aero Engines, Munich Re, Osram, Puma, Rohde & Schwarz, Schaeffler, Siemens and Wacker Chemie.

In addition, Munich has since WW2 been a center for the Western intelligence operations. Until 2017, Pullach outside Munich was the HQ of the BND, the German foreign intelligence service founded by Reinhardt Gehlen. Also the CIA was very active, using Munich among other things as a base to run Eastern European exile groups and Radio Free Europe.
