With a vigil, the State Women's Council, Green Youth, Jusos and trade unions have warned the parliamentary groups against delaying the reform of the state election law.

Anja Reinalter, chairwoman of the regional women's council, complained on Thursday in Stuttgart that the reform was not yet ready for a decision 100 days after the start of the electoral term.

"We have been waiting far too long for gender-equitable suffrage."

Stuttgart - It should not be that the objections of the FDP put the project on the back burner.

The FDP fears that the reform will inflate parliament and calls for a reduction in the number of constituencies.

Sarah Heim, spokeswoman for the Green Youth, expects the reform to be decided this year.

Another procrastination "would be a fatal signal to our generation." State Parliament President Muhterem Aras (Greens) mingled with Green Party leader Andreas Schwarz and other MPs among the 30 or so demonstrators in the vicinity of the State Parliament.

She agreed to the demands: "It is the highest railway that this reform is actually implemented." Currently the proportion of women is 29.2 percent, in future the ratio - if possible - must be half and half.

Schwarz pointed out that the proposal of the green-black coalition was on the table and was ready for a decision.

For a two-thirds majority, the coalition needs at least the approval of the SPD.

According to Green-Black's plans, there should be a two-vote right to vote in the state, similar to the federal government.

In future, voters should be able to vote their direct candidates in the constituency in the state parliament with the first vote.

As in the general election, the second vote should go to one party.

70 mandates are to be awarded via direct mandates, at least 50 via the lists of the parties.

The second votes are to be counted on the basis of a closed state list in order to bring more young people and more women into parliament.

In addition, as in local elections, younger people should be allowed to vote from the age of 16.
