The former MP Marcel Luthe (independent) has failed to enforce in front of the State Constitutional Court that the Berlin House of Representatives can no longer meet in its current composition. Luthe announced this on Wednesday evening on Twitter. A spokeswoman for the State Constitutional Court could not confirm this at first. Luthe has already announced that he wanted to contact the Federal Constitutional Court in Karlsruhe in the next step.
"Article 28 of the Basic Law says there must be a elected population representative in every state," said Luthe of the German Press Agency. “The Constitutional Court says that they are not chosen, but at the same time says that the representative representative should be.

One man attempted to flee and ditch his illegal firearm. Inside their pickup truck, officers found jugs of gasoline, knives, a pistol, slingshots and hundreds of stones — as well as 9,999 reais (nearly $1,900) in cash.
Luthe had argued that the current House of Representatives was not elected in a democratic and legal way and demanded that the parliament had to meet in the composition of the last legislative period from 2016 to 2021.
He belonged to the House of Representatives from 2016 to 2021, initially as a member of the FDP parliamentary group, later as a non-party member. He was also one of those who had appealed against the 2021 election in front of the Constitutional Court.
Luthe published the decision of the Wednesday Constitutional Court on Twitter. It states that the application is unfounded. The applicant is also not entitled to apply.
The State Constitutional Court had decided on November 16 that the election to the House of Representatives must be completely repeated. It is invalid due to “severe systemic defects” and many election errors. The judgment also said that the parliament could continue to work until a new House of Representatives was constituted. The repetition of the election will take place on February 12th.
