BERLIN (dpa-AFX) – Federal Justice Minister Marco Buschmann (FDP) could imagine that the Bundestag will initially weigh up the arguments for a general corona vaccination requirement in an orientation debate without talking about a specific draft law. “That is in the hands of parliament, but it could take place very quickly and very early,” said Buschmann on Thursday in the RTL / ntv program “Frühstart”. At the moment there is only one negative motion from parts of the FDP parliamentary group in the debate. When asked whether the federal government is currently playing for time on the topic, Buschmann said: “No, it’s a very special topic.” The debate drives the people, motions from parliamentarians are in progress. “I cannot say now whether the final results will be ready by next week, because as I said, it is a procedure in which Parliament is sitting in the pilot’s chair.”
The Bundestag should decide on a general obligation to vaccinate against corona in a free vote without parliamentary group discipline. Buschmann defended the approach of the Ampel coalition not to submit its own draft law, but to rely on cross-factional group proposals. The topic touches on the basic beliefs, “because it is about the question of whether I have to make medical treatment compulsory, even if I don’t want it.” The so-called group application process is now developing its strength, “namely that the different arguments are discussed publicly, with passion.” The later result then has a “much stronger, more satisfying force” for the conflict than if the decision were only carried out with a coalition majority ./nif/DP/ngu
