Source: Die Linke “The fact that the Chancellor’s draft resolution for the anti-corona measures is available to the media, but not to the Bundestag, is a serious disregard for parliament and a threat to democracy,” explains Achim Kessler, health policy spokesman for the DIE LINKE parliamentary group . Kessler continues: “The Bundestag must be involved in the decisions on measures to combat the pandemic, which also include restrictions on freedoms, as Bundestag President Wolfgang Schäuble has also called for. The fact that far-reaching decisions are not discussed publicly in the Bundestag but are made behind closed doors prevents people from being able to understand the decisions. But if the measures are incomprehensible to the population, then they will not be complied with. With their lack of transparency, the federal government is endangering a successful fight against the pandemic. Instead of talking about penalties to enforce the measures, the federal government has to convince the population of the appropriateness of the measures with arguments. Referring to the Bundestag would be a necessary first step. “
