According to a media report, Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) has examined how the confidential Corona top rounds with the Prime Minister can be better protected from "leaks" and sealed off from the media.

Noticeable changes and a tightening of the rules for these meetings are currently being discussed, reports the editors of RTL and n-tv, citing their own information. The Prime Minister of Rhineland-Palatinate, Malu Dreyer, said to RTL and n-tv: “These piercings during the MPK are a major annoyance. They block our work, cost time and prevent good, appropriate results. But: I remain an optimist, even if it annoys me, and I hope that it will be more trusting in the next round. "

Government spokesman Steffen Seibert initially did not want to comment specifically on the RTL / n-tv editorial team's request. One of the things under discussion is apparently a reduction in the rounds, in which the heads of the state chancelleries were also recently involved. In addition, there appears to be an obligation for all those present to hand over their cell phones before the start of the meeting.
