"Put an end to the patchwork quilt"

Brinkhaus is also pushing for a new attempt at nationwide uniform corona rules . It must now be "an end to the patchwork", demanded Brinkhaus in the Tagesspiegel on Sunday. “I have great respect for the right to decide and the responsibility of prime ministers.

But I expect a consistent line, ”said the CDU politician. "The one who wants to do the least must not be the bottleneck for a uniform solution."

Brinkhaus also wants the Bundestag to intervene more strongly in the Corona debate. It is not about executive powers for parliament. "I don't want the German Bundestag to have to decide every week whether you can sit together privately with two or three households," said the CDU politician.

Should the majority of parliament consider the measures taken to be exaggerated, it would have to withdraw powers from the government again “within the scope of our possibilities”. However, Brinkhaus rejected a general withdrawal of the pandemic special rights for the government. The corona emergency is just as serious today as it was in spring.
