From the ministry directly into the economy, earn a fortune?

In the future, stricter rules will also apply to ministers and state secretaries in Baden-Württemberg when they switch to lucrative jobs in companies.

With the votes of the Greens and the CDU, the state parliament decided on Thursday to introduce a waiting period for members of the government.

Stuttgart – Ministers and state secretaries must therefore report new jobs to the state government from 2023 in the first year and a half after their withdrawal from politics.

If there are fears that public interests will be harmed, the government can delay the job change by a year, in serious cases by a year and a half.

An external committee is to check individual cases for conflicts of interest.

The law does not go far enough for the opposition.

In this context, the case of ex-Environment Minister Franz Untersteller (Greens), who became an advisor to the Mannheim energy supplier MVV just a few months after retiring from politics, is repeatedly mentioned.
