Union parliamentary group leader Ralph Brinkhaus has spoken out against a legal claim to home office. The economy should not be burdened with additional burdens, said Brinkhaus, referring to the fragile situation of companies in the wake of the corona crisis. The CDU / CSU parliamentary group is in favor of mobile working, emphasized Brinkhaus. But employers and employees could better identify this among themselves.

Brinkhaus said at the start of the week of the Bundestag’s session on Tuesday, “no more bricks should be put in the economy backpack.” He added: “You don’t have to regulate everything through additional laws.”

Germany is economically in a situation that is continuously improving, so @rbrinkhaus. In the coming period, however, one must act with “caution and caution”. Setbacks in fighting the #corona pandemic could also have economic consequences.

Bundestag passes electoral reform

The focus of the week of the session was the adoption of the electoral reform, which is intended to prevent the Bundestag from bursting at the seams. The chairman of the CDU / CSU parliamentary group was happy that a compromise had been reached after several attempts. A “small reform” is planned for the next federal election in 2021. The “powerful” will then follow in 2025.

The # right-wing extremism report by Horst Seehofer @BMI_Bund is very helpful. For @rbrinkhaus it is clear: “We have to strengthen those who fight against extremism in the security authorities” instead of putting employees under general suspicion of right-wing extremism.

Halfway through the EU Council Presidency

The deputy group leader Katja Leikert spoke at the halfway point of the German EU Council Presidency. The focus was on the reform of the European asylum and migration pact. She welcomed the proposal of the EU Commission because it contained “many points that we advocated”. Among other things, she mentioned the increased external border protection and the rapid repatriation of rejected asylum seekers. Even if there are still many open points – such as the prevention of secondary movements within the EU – the Union parliamentary group was “on the whole satisfied,” she asserted.

The German Council Presidency is in full swing. Important for us: progress on the topic of #migration. External border protection, faster asylum procedures at the borders and the issue of returns are central concerns, emphasizes @KLeikert. # / HgY5dsTQjS

Tichanovskaya in the European Committee

With a view to the democracy movement in Belarus, Leikert said: “We are on the side of the freedom fighters.” The Belarusian opposition leader Svetlana Tichanovskaya pays a visit to the Bundestag European Committee on Wednesday. On Tuesday evening, Leikert already had the opportunity to meet Tichanowskaya, who, in her opinion, was a “strong and courageous woman”.

“We demand the release of all opposition politicians who have been captured,” said parliamentary deputy @KLeikert on the situation in #Belarus. She also warns that the #EU must be able to act more quickly in conflict situations.

Further sanctions against Belarus possible

Leikert praised the fact that, after a long struggle, the European Union put 40 people close to the Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko on the sanctions list, but emphasized: “We are not at the end of the flagpole yet.” the parliamentary group vice and therefore demanded: “We have to move away from the majority principle.”
