SPD: Laws must not come about with AfD votes

DÜSSELDORF. The SPD in the state parliament of North Rhine-Westphalia has called for a ban on legislative decisions if they only get the necessary majority with the votes of the AfD. The SPD made a corresponding urgent request on Monday in the Düsseldorf state parliament.

With the application, the state parliament should acknowledge that "there should be no cooperation and no form of cooperation of any kind between the democrats and the AfD in the state parliament of North Rhine-Westphalia". On the one hand, this means that the election of the Prime Minister must never depend on the AfD's votes. And secondly: "Likewise, there cannot be any legislative decisions in the local state parliament that have found a majority only through the votes of AfD deputies."

Fast and clear commitment
In view of the heated mood in the country, a quick and clear commitment of the state parliament is needed, the SPD justified its concern. "The AfD must not represent a power option of any kind for any democratic party or parliamentary group in North Rhine-Westphalia. That is a basic question of democratic self-image. "

However, the proposal will not be put to the vote this week. The President, in agreement with the Presidium, has decided not to allow any urgent application for this plenary week, ”said a spokesman for the Landtag when asked by Junge Freiheit.

It is unclear how the SPD's request can be reconciled with the state constitution. This guarantees the MPs a free mandate. The state constitution of North Rhine-Westphalia states: “The deputies vote according to their free conviction, which is determined only by consideration of the well-being of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia; they are not bound by orders.
