The state government is not pursuing plans for a controversial recruitment agreement with Uzbekistan. The cooperation agreement was not signed, according to a response from the state government to a request from the Greens. According to him, the state government does not intend to "continue on this path for recruiting skilled workers from Uzbekistan".

Magdeburg - The recruitment plans had been criticized by the Greens and the Left in the state parliament of Saxony-Anhalt. The parties accused the president of the state parliament, Gunnar Schellenberger (CDU), of not having involved the competent authorities at the federal and state level in the talks.

As can be seen from the state government's responses, the aim of the agreement was to attract around 2024 Uzbek workers and junior staff to the labour market in Saxony-Anhalt between 2028 and 5000. After the criticism arose at the beginning of May, Schellenberger explained that he had been approached as part of his patronage of a training year at the Sangerhausen Nursing Academy.

The Greens criticized the actions of the president of the state parliament. He had "acted unprofessionally and ignored all constitutional competences," said the domestic policy spokesman of the Greens, Sebastian Striegel. "Unfortunately, the failure of the recruitment initiative was foreseeable." dpa
