"From our point of view, this proposal does not represent a suitable basis for a constitutional and sensible change of electoral law. Unfortunately, it is the worst possible proposal of all previous proposals," says the letter about the "picture".
Accordingly, the new right to vote will be an issue on Tuesday in the Union's parliamentary group meeting. The MEPs, which include Minister of Integration Annette Widmann-Mauz and Minister for Integration Norbert Röttgen (both CDU), also criticize the leadership style of the group leader. Reform of the electoral law has been an issue for years, they say. “However, the issue of the right to vote has never been on the agenda at any of our parliamentary group meetings. So far, it has not been possible to form a common opinion within our group. Now, as you could see from the media, a new proposal on electoral law reform should be discussed in tomorrow's parliamentary group meeting and therefore in the last session before the summer break, ”the protest letter said.
