Union parliamentary group leader calls for nationwide rules
The chairman of the CDU / CSU parliamentary group, Ralph Brinkhaus, advocates nationwide uniform corona rules in the fight against the corona pandemic – he emphasized this in a conversation with the “Tagesspiegel”.
The parliamentary group leader demanded in the interview that it must now be “an end to the patchwork”. He had “great respect for the right to make decisions and the responsibility of prime ministers”, but he also expected “a consistent line”.
Transparency is essential
Brinkhaus also sees the citizens as an obligation – he relies on personal responsibility: “That corresponds to our view of human beings, and that is what the citizens want too. But there must be clear recommendations and uniform announcements. “
The chairman of the CDU / CSU parliamentary group also explained why he was in favor of a parliamentary debate on the corona measures: While it is true on the one hand that such crises are the hour of the executive, he still feels “a certain discomfort when everyone these discussions only take place internally. I would like to run it publicly, in the Bundestag, where that belongs. Transparency is essential for combating the pandemic. ”Ultimately, Brinkhaus continued, the plenary session is the place“ where the legal basis is created ”and where“ these measures have to be justified and explained. ”
Note two factors
In addition, there are two factors that deserve special attention: If daycare centers and schools had to close again, that would be difficult, especially since the main burden for many families in this area was in spring. The second factor is the economy. Ralph Brinkhaus emphasized: “It is important for people that they can continue shopping and go to their factories or offices. In other countries the factories had to close. This was never the case across Germany. If we got that far, it would be dark. “
