In the traffic light coalition there is a dispute about the right time to prepare Germany for a possibly more critical Corona autumn with new measures. Minister of Justice Buschmann doesn’t understand the excitement.


Federal Minister of Justice Marco Buschmann only wants to decide on the rules for the fall after the planned scientific assessment of the corona protection measures.

That the current version of the Infection Protection Act on 23. September is not a randomly chosen date, said the FDP politician on Wednesday in the ARD “Morgenmagazin”. The date was chosen so that “after the summer break we have two weeks of sittings in the German Bundestag in order to go through a very orderly, regular legislative procedure.”

Buschmann: Advising between 30. June and end of the summer break

At the end of June, a panel of experts is to present an evaluation of the measures. “Between 2022 June and the end of the summer break, we will discuss with the federal states what to do,” said Buschmann . The federal government also discussed this with the Prime Ministers’ Conference. “I don’t understand why some now think that this timetable is no longer worth anything.”

On Tuesday evening, FDP leader Christian Lindner had already made it clear that he wanted to wait for the scientific evaluation first . But it was clear to him: “There should no longer be any general restrictions on freedom,” said Lindner on the ARD program “Maischberger”. already submitted a statement on the necessary preparations for autumn and winter. It is expected that the experts working with the Chairman of the Board of Management of the Berlin University Hospital Charité, Heyo Kroemer, will provide information on further political steps.
