Markus Söder wishes a happy new year and thanks the emergency services.
There is a lot of headwind for his New Year's Eve tweet.
Munich – After a two-year Corona break, fireworks were allowed to be sold again this year.
The demand was enormous.
Again and again, there are severe injuries on New Year's Eve - a challenge for the hospitals, which are already under a lot of stress.

"New Year's Eve is a major challenge every year, especially for the police, fire brigade and rescue services.
They work tirelessly for our community," writes Prime Minister Markus Söder on the subject on Instagram.
"We say a big thank you to everyone who works over the turn of the year!
Happy New Year,” wishes the CSU boss.

Söder followers wish the CSU boss a happy new year – criticism on Twitter
"Happy 2023 to you too!
May 2023 be a good, more normal year,” hopes one woman in the comments.
Many also wish the CSU boss a Happy New Year.
On Twitter, however, Söder gets a lot of headwind for his post: “The forces you mentioned are working for the community all year round.
Your tweet is like clapping from the balcony to show appreciation."

"Let's see whether this appreciation is also reflected in the next collective bargaining negotiations or whether 'clapping will have to do it again'," said another person in a similar way.
"Your sincere blessings, God, you can put yourself somewhere else," says a frustrated woman.
“Paying it would also be unworthy.
God alone regulates that,” someone replies ironically to Söder’s tweet.

"Such a big thank you.
The 'forces from the police, fire brigade and rescue services' are very happy now," is another sarcastic response to the CSU boss's post.
"But don't ban firecrackers, you could end up relieving the police, fire brigade or rescue workers.
Well, happy new year, right”, can also be read.
