The traffic light coalition should not be in place until December.

But the CDU and CSU are already leaving unsolved corona problems - at least the Greens are getting ready for a cold start.

  • The SPD, the Greens and the FDP are negotiating a traffic light coalition.

    However, no further discussion will take place until the Bundestag has been constituted.

  • Nevertheless, the traffic light parties are already under pressure - of all things with the once again highly urgent Corona issue.

  • CDU Minister Jens Spahn has counted the epidemic situation without a follow-up solution.

    The Union now expects a reaction from Scholz's majority of the Chancellors.

Berlin / Munich - The traffic light parties only want to negotiate on Wednesday - and then set up a coalition by the beginning of December.

But it looks like a first, very practical task will be waiting for the SPD, Greens and FDP beforehand.

A big one too: A successor regulation for the “epidemic situation” is being sought.

And the Union apparently wants to stay out of the way of finding a solution.

Even if she continues to provide the Minister of Health with Jens Spahn (CDU).

Traffic lights and Corona: Spahn's CDU leaves Scholz, Baerbock and Co. tasks

Spahn - like Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) - will receive the certificate of discharge on Tuesday *. From this point on, the cabinet will only be "executive" in office. Actually, this does not prevent the federal government, either legally or practically, from launching new initiatives. Apparently, the CDU and CSU are no longer in the mood for it. Spahn had recently counted the "epidemic situation", but presented no succession plan. Partly also to the displeasure of the prime ministers in the federal states.

As before, Bavaria's Prime Minister Markus Söder * has now also taken the traffic lights to duty.

He called for

a far-reaching change

in the

world

: Even without an “epidemic situation”, paragraph 28a of the Infection Protection Act should be able to be used, he said - but at least the rules for mask compulsory and AHA rules.

He saw the SPD, Greens and FDP as responsible for this.

The first big task for the traffic light coalition *, which is still in the making.

And that even before the first positions for the coalition paper are in place.

The Bundestag parliamentary groups of the three parties are now asked.

At least the Greens seem to want to tackle the problem.

Greens respond to Corona problem: first proposal on the "epidemic situation" - temporary solution in sight

The Bavarian Green MP Manuela Rottmann spoke out in the

world

against the continuation of the epidemic situation.

“In order to take into account the new situation and the number of people vaccinated, we are proposing a legally secure transitional arrangement that allows certain measures to be continued for a limited period of time,” she said.

The situation is currently different from last autumn, "because we are no longer at the mercy of the virus because of the vaccinations," said Rottmann.

But the situation is "still serious, because the number of infections is increasing significantly".

The Greens apparently do not yet have a concrete plan: The parliamentary group is "in discussion" on the question of what a transitional arrangement could look like.
