The top of the Union faction wants to discuss three models in the faction meeting (5:00 p.m.), as the German Press Agency in Berlin learned after a meeting of the faction board from Union circles. The goal is an opinion of the MPs, with which the group leader Ralph Brinkhaus (CDU) can go into further negotiations with the SPD and opposition.

After an internally controversial discussion by Brinkhaus to cap the number of MPs at 750 and after the CSU had signaled that it would agree to a reduction in the number of constituencies by 2025, the Gordian knot had burst, it was said. The CSU had previously categorically rejected a reduction in the number of constituencies.

Brinkhaus's model of an emergency mechanism for the 2021 Bundestag election provides for capping from a number of 750 MPs. After that, an overhang mandate should not be compensated by compensation mandates and a direct mandate should be canceled - until the maximum number of 750 seats has been reached. From 2025, this model envisages a reduction in the number of constituencies from 299 to 280, seven overhang mandates are to remain without compensation.

However, resistance to this proposal is evidently growing in the Union faction. "In our view, this proposal does not constitute a suitable basis for a constitutional and sensible change of electoral law," according to a report by the "Bild" newspaper in a letter signed by at least 39 members of the parliamentary group. "Unfortunately, it is the worst possible proposal of all previous proposals," the MPs continue to write.

The second model provides for the reduction of the number of constituencies to 280 as early as 2021, the emergency mechanism would be eliminated. Union circles said that this model was technically difficult to implement, but possible.

The third model corresponds to the CSU proposal of Monday: It includes the one-time application of a maximum limit for 2021 of 699 MPs - 299 constituency candidates and a maximum of 400 list mandates. If the maximum limit is exceeded, the number of MPs should be reduced in relation to the political groups. From 2025, the size of the Bundestag would be limited by a combination of overhang seats without compensation and a reduction in the number of constituencies.

Biden and Trump agree: November election could be corrupt

  Biden and Trump agree: November election could be corrupt ATLANTA (AP) — President Donald Trump and his challenger, Joe Biden, have found something they agree on: The November election could be rife with corruption because of how officials handle the voting process. Of course, the Republican incumbent and his Democratic rival place the prospective blame in different places. Each points at the other’s party. “I really, really, really believe we’re on the cusp of what could be the most corrupt process that we’ve seen in a general election if we don’t monitor this every single second,” Biden told donors Tuesday evening as he discussed Trump’s and many Republicans’ opposition to expanding early voting and mail-in voting amid the COVID

The political groups had not been able to agree on reform in the past parliamentary term. As a result, the parliament became 709 MPs in the 2017 election as never before. The target size of the parliament is 598 seats. For the Bundestag election in 2021, there is fear of an increase to 800 or even more MPs without a change in the electoral law.

So far, the Bundestag has only one bill to prevent this. It was brought in jointly by the FDP, the Greens and the Left. It also envisages a reduction in the number of constituencies from 299 to 250. The three opposition groups insist that the draft be discussed and put to the vote next Friday, the last day of the session before the parliamentary summer break.

The taxpayers' association sharply criticized the delay in electoral reform. "I think it is unspeakable that the political groups are delaying an urgently needed reform of the complicated electoral law with its overhang and compensation mandates - the voters and taxpayers are left behind," said the president of the interest group, Reiner Holznagel, the "world".
