The members of the Bundestag have the opportunity to question the head of government three times a year. Traditionally, the Chancellor comes to the Bundestag for a government survey before Easter, before the summer break and before Christmas. However, since Scholz was only sworn in in December, this year’s survey has been postponed to January.
