Federal Minister of Health Jens Spahn (CDU) defended the extension of special rights he wanted. "It is not arbitrary or coincidental that there are corresponding possibilities for the federal government, for the federal minister or for the states, but these are legal bases, bases decided by the Bundestag," said Spahn on Tuesday in the ZDF "Morgenmagazin".

Currently there is criticism of the low influence of parliaments on decisions about corona measures. This criticism is sparked, among other things, by the fact that Spahn would like to extend special rights that the Bundestag had granted him in March. So far, they are limited to March 2021.

A draft law now states that the previous regulations should be "consolidated" "provided that this is necessary to protect the population from the risk of serious communicable diseases".

When asked why the general conditions should not be determined by the Bundestag again after the acute transitional situation, Spahn said: "They will continue to do so, as would be the case in our proposed Infection Protection Act for the Bundestag to lay down the rules."

 survey: Spahn on question about CDU chairmanship, Söder on chancellor question Federal Minister of Health Jens Spahn would have good cards as CDU chairman among citizens, but few good cards as candidate for chancellor of the Union. In a survey by the Kantar Institute for the Funke media group (Saturday), 22 percent said they were most likely to trust Spahn to become a good CDU chairman.

What he wants to standardize and put on a clearer legal basis is something that MPs rightly demand: "The regulations relating to entry." The topic of entry can only be regulated by the federal government and should not be dealt with by 16 federal states be handled differently. “That is what the draft law provides,” said Spahn.

Previously, Bundestag Vice-President Claudia Roth had also expressed herself critically and called for greater participation of the Bundestag in decisions on corona containment measures.

At a time when the protection of health and the protection of freedom and civil rights must be weighed up, there must be a struggle for solutions, the Green politician called on Deutschlandfunk on Tuesday. "That is the job of parliament, we can do it, we should bring it back again."

Roth sees the principle of the separation of powers in a lopsided position. "This is a really dangerous wrong development that it is moving away from the legislature to clandestine executive events, then also with campaigning prime ministers and insatiable ministers," said Roth.

“The coalition factions have been delegating to the prime ministers for far too long, so to speak, and that is taking its toll.” The struggle in the Bundestag for the right answers to the difficult questions only creates acceptance among the population for encroachments on fundamental rights.
