"This affects the equal opportunities of the political parties," said Susanne Quantity, parliamentary group spokeswoman for local politics, on Monday with a view to the state government's bill.

Hanover - In the spring, the state government drafted an amendment to this law, which, among other things, should regulate the distribution of seats in the specialist committees.

In the draft of the state government it is said that the seat allocation procedure for the formation of committees of the municipal representations is to be converted to the d'Hondt maximum number procedure.

This procedure seems more suitable for ensuring stable majority relationships in the committees than the previous procedure.

The opposition parties FDP and Greens see themselves at a disadvantage.

Free tests for students: new corona rules decided

Schleswig-Holstein's students can also have themselves tested for Corona free of charge during the autumn holidays (October 4 to 16).

That goes in the test centers, but if necessary schools also provide test kits before the holidays, said Education Minister Karin Prien (CDU) on Thursday.

"The self-assessment after a negative Corona self-test then applies to schoolchildren like a test certificate from the test center."

“To prevent this undemocratic act, we Greens have tabled an amendment.

He cancels the change in the counting procedure and continues to ensure a fair distribution of seats and an appropriate participation of small groups, ”emphasized Quantity.

The FDP parliamentary group also expressed clear criticism of the draft law on Monday.

“Many of the smaller parties have clearly gained votes and in some cases also mandates in the local elections, but they should now lose their voting rights.

That can no longer be explained to the voters and it is also unconstitutional, ”said parliamentary group leader Stefan Birkner.

The draft law will be finally discussed in the state parliament on Wednesday.
