Bavaria: Aiwanger wants to take part in a special session on the leaflet affair – Bavaria

Bavaria’s Deputy Prime Minister Hubert Aiwanger (Free Voters) wants to take part in the special session of the state parliament on the allegations against him for an anti-Semitic leaflet. “According to current assessments” he wants to be in the state parliament on Thursday, Aiwanger said at a press conference after a cabinet meeting on Tuesday in Munich. It is “still to be clarified” whether he will also comment on the allegations.

Prime Minister Markus Söder (CSU) had previously announced through a spokesman for the State Chancellery that he would take part in the special session requested by the Greens, SPD and FDP. At the press conference on Tuesday, State Chancellery chief Florian Herrmann left open whether he would comment on the affair.

The so-called interim committee meets on Thursday at the request of the Greens, SPD and FDP. This body can deal with urgent matters after the last plenary session before a state election. Only some of the members of the state parliament are members there – currently there are exactly 51.
