The CDU parliamentary group in the house of representatives determines, whether to support a Committee of inquiry into the dismissal of Hubertus Knabe or not. After the FDP group had announced its Chairman, Sebastian Czaja the request nearly two weeks ago, was on Monday evening, the CDU party Board again with the question.
the result: A clear positioning for or against the Committee is, instead, the members of the group Executive Board request the immediate response to all written requests for information to the topic. In addition, the deputies of the CDU group to grant your request a comprehensive inspection of the files in the matter. Succinctly stated: "The CDU parliamentary group adopts the joint Initiative of AfD, and FDP for the establishment of an investigation Committee."
About the end of the session, in turn, different representations of the daily mirror. While some of those present speak of a Dregger forced to vote for the protection of the CDU-country Manager, Monika Grütters, who want to have an intense debate experienced. At this all present, the Board of management should have members involved at the end of the consensus outcome.

Dregger spoke on Tuesday of an "open discussion" and a "broad consensus". He didn't want to take no decision beforehand, the statement said.
The theme is for the CDU is therefore controversial, because the vote is for or against the Committee is closely associated with the CDU land Chairman Monika Grütters. This was supported in their role as state Minister of Culture dismissal Knabes. She turned to the side of the Left culture Senator Klaus Lederer, is some of the Christian Democrats - especially at the base - bitter.
Because Dregger and Grütters had already been excluded immediately after becoming aware of the FDP application, a support for a Committee of inquiry on the case of a boy, both would be in the case of the consent of the individual, the CDU Deputy duped.
Meanwhile, has reported with the Association of victims of Stalinism (VOS) one of the 40 member associations of the Union of victim associations of Communist tyranny (UOKG). In one of the editors of the present Letter to CDU faction chief Burkard Dregger VOS criticized the national Director of the Hugo Diederich, the CDU had been not for the support of the Committee.
"We don't want a slick SED-cultural Senator, we want answers"
"we are not able to understand than formerly to be Concerned, absolutely," writes Diederich, with a view to the group's internal discussions. "We as victims can not understand why Dr. Knabe had to leave. Previous verbal answers do not satisfy us. We don't want a slick SED-cultural Senator, we want answers. This can only be done by a Committee of inquiry," says Diederich.
it is Unclear whether the Position of the VOS has over the Association of their own, in addition to supporters. The Diederich led the Association had been advised in the past years due to the suspicion of infidelity in the headlines and in the meantime, from the UOKG excluded. Within the umbrella Association of the VOS members are considered to be right wing, insiders speak of "a clear enemy picture to the left party".
Dieter Dombrowski (CDU), Chairman of UOKG, would not comment on the procedure of VOS. "We have 40 member associations, since it is not permitted to comment on initiatives by individual organisations," said the Vice-President of the Brandenburg Landtag. Also in the question of whether a Committee of inquiry was appropriate to the dismissal of Hubertus Knabe, Dombrowski covered.
In an earlier Version of this article stated that the CDU parliamentary group's Board of Directors have denied Burkhard Dregger, the following in of the question of a Committee of inquiry. That is not correct. A clear positioning is more.
