>>> Update news ticker <<<
+++ 11.57 am: Marco Buschmann, First Parliamentary Managing Director of the FDP parliamentary group, strives for a “dignified handling of the responsibility” that the citizens have entrusted to the Bundestag. Modernizing the rules of procedure of the Bundestag makes sense. But he rejected the AfD amendment to lower the quorum for the election and deselection of a Federal Chancellor, referring to the experience from the Weimar Republic. This ultimately led to the dictatorship. The aim of the AfD is to “undermine trust in the democratic institutions of our Basic Law”.
+++ 11.51 a.m .: Britta Hasselmann, parliamentary manager of the Greens parliamentary group, began her speech with an attack on the AfD. “The Bundestag’s rules of procedure are binding for everyone,” she said. Two amendments by the AfD on the election of the Federal Chancellor and on gender are therefore available – Hasselmann considers both to be “nonsense”.
+++ 11.40 a.m .: Wolfgang Schäuble’s speech has now ended. In it he acted statesmanlike as usual and emphasized the great tasks Germany would face in the next four years.
+++ 11:27 am: The parliamentary managing director of the CDU / CSU parliamentary group, Michael Grosse-Brömer, said with a view to Gauland that whoever describes the darkest chapter in German history as “fly shit” has already disqualified himself. Grosse-Brömer also criticized efforts by the FDP to change the seating arrangements in the Bundestag “with a crowbar”. This is not a good style: “I feel a touch of arrogance of power.”
AfD scandal right at the beginning of the first Bundestag session
+++ 11.25 a.m .: Before that, there was a scandal in the speech by AfD MP Ben Baumann. The parliamentary manager of his group emphasized: “For almost two centuries it has been a fixed parliamentary custom for a so-called senior president to open the session. And that was always, out of respect for age, the oldest member of parliament. ”All the Bundestag had adhered to the rule, only in 1933 an exception was made with Hermann Göring, said Baumann. Gauland is the “oldest and most experienced” in the Bundestag. A refusal of the allocation of the senior president to the AfD is a “lowering of millions of voters”.
SPD politician Carsten Schneider described the comparison drawn by the AfD politician with the Weimar Republic as “cheek”.
+++ 11.15 a.m .: An application by the AfD to nominate Alexander Gauland instead of Wolfgang Schäuble as old-age president of the Bundestag was rejected by the Bundestag. Schäuble subsequently announced: “I’m delighted to take on the role.”
+++ 11.00 a.m .: The first session of the newly elected Bundestag begins. Age President Schäuble first explains numerous formalities.
3G regulation at the first session of the German Bundestag
+++ 10.20 a.m .: The first session of the 20th German Bundestag takes place under special corona* -Conditions instead. The 3G regime applies in Parliament. This means that only MPs who have been vaccinated against the coronavirus, tested negative for Sars-CoV-2 or have recovered from Covid-19 are allowed to enter the plenary session. Corresponding evidence must be submitted to the Bundestag doctor in advance of the meeting. The tests must not be older than 24 hours.
If this is the case, the MPs will receive a black, red and gold bracelet as a sign of their 3G proof. MPs who refuse to accept the 3G regulation must sit in one of the grandstands. There, for example, seats are kept free for MPs who are concerned about the lack of distance regulation in the plenary. Stephan Protschka, member of the Bundestag for the AfD, announced on Twitter, for example, that he would take a seat in the stands: “Tomorrow I will take a seat in the visitors’ stand in the Bundestag because I am unwilling to disclose my state of health,” he wrote on Monday .
First report from Tuesday, October 26th, 2021, 9.30 a.m .: Berlin – Around four weeks after the Bundestag election 2021* The 20th German Bundestag will meet for the first time on Tuesday (October 26th, 2021). The background to this is a requirement of the Basic Law, which states that the elected parliament must meet no later than the 30th day after the election. The Bundestag session will be chaired by Wolfgang Schäuble, senior president (seated in parliament since 1972) and outgoing Bundestag president.
Schäuble would have liked to remain President of the Bundestag. However, the occupation of the second largest office in the state is incumbent on the largest parliamentary group, i.e. the SPD*. Several days ago it became clear who would be Schäuble’s successor: Bärbel Bas has already been nominated by the Social Democratic Party. Your choice is considered safe.
Federal election 2021: Blockade of the AfD candidate as vice
The Union, which suffered a historic defeat, has also put up a candidacy, but for the office of Vice President: Yvonne Magwas is considered a promising candidate by CDU* and CSU*. The former integration commissioner of the federal government, Aydan Özoguz, was proposed from the ranks of the SPD. In addition, three familiar faces will again be deputies: Claudia Roth from the Greens*, Petra Pau from the left* and Wolfgang Kubicki from the FDP*. the AfD* Parliamentary group also sends Michael Kaufmann into the race as a possible deputy for the new President of the Bundestag.
