The CDU in the Saxon state parliament is sticking to its schedule for a constitutional amendment in connection with the debt brake.

“We are waiting for the November tax estimate.

This makes a cash drop and a forecast of the income situation possible, "said CDU financial expert Georg-Ludwig von Breitenbuch on Monday in Dresden:" We need clarity as to how much we actually need in corona loans.

Dresden - Then we will talk about the ban on new borrowing and the associated repayment. ”The parliamentary group's executive committee will deal with the financial policy framework in a retreat from November 24th to 26th.

Saxony had incurred debts for the first time since 2006 in the previous year.

The state parliament authorized the government to take out loans of up to six billion euros to cope with the consequences of the pandemic.

According to the legal requirements in the constitution, these loans must be repaid in just eight years.

After two grace-free years, the first tranche is due in 2023 - almost 300 million euros.

The CDU coalition partners Greens and SPD, like the Left, are in favor of increasing the repayment period to up to 30 years.

To do this, however, the constitution would have to be changed, which would require a two-thirds majority.

Coalition: Left and Greens are missing progress

After the re-election of Prime Minister Reiner Haseloff (CDU), the left accused the new black-red-yellow coalition of lack of ambition and a cuddle course.

"It is a coalition of the lowest common denominator and not a coalition of visions," said parliamentary group leader Eva von Angern on Thursday.

For example, there was a lack of answers to questions about climate protection and coping with the consequences of the corona pandemic.

“For us as the CDU, it is important to pay off the corona-related debts reliably and as quickly as possible.

This is an expression of frugality and a sense of responsibility towards future generations.

In this way we maintain our independence from the international financial markets, ”emphasized von Breitenbuch.
