Coalition Committee : red-Red-Green row over Berlin's local transport plan

The transport policy remains a topic between the government parties SPD, greens and Left for prolonged atmospheric disturbances. Accordingly, the mood in the coalition Committee, addressed on Wednesday in a confidential session in detail with the new local transport plan for Berlin was marred. By 2035, the gigantic sum is to be issued by 28 billion euros to modernise the Railways, buses and Tram complete, and the route network to expand.

in a Bad mood, the governing mayor Michael Müller (SPD) complained in the meeting, especially the Green for the extension of metro lines a little interested. It comes to the Expansion of the line 7 to the airport BER, the line 6 to Tegel and the U8 to märkisches Viertel. Müller accused the government partners small piece and ideological Thinking. The fought back and pointed to the red-red-green coalition agreement, which allows for the improvement of public transport, the tram priority, followed by the S-Bahn. The Expansion of the U-Bahn.

"We have a implementation problem"

Now the local transport plan, which is negotiated between the transport Senator, Regine Günther (independent, Green), Economics Senator, Ramona Pop (Green) and Finance Minister Matthias Kollatz (SPD), allegedly, for the most part, threatens to be in a dispute over transport policy priorities pounded. The Left and the greens, they offered the social Democrats on Wednesday, your own wishes in a detailed list. In two weeks, then the coalition Committee should look for, in a special session on public transport solutions. Transport Senator, Günther and specialists from the administration to be loaded. It is not just a question of which means of transport have priority, but also to the financing and implementation of the great Plan. Even in the coalition there are doubts about the available planning capacities and specialists.

"We have a implementation problem", in the ranks of red-Red-Green for two years, complained. Occasionally one hears internally, even prophecies, that in this government, "the air is out". Eight subjects had to deal with the top people from the SPD, Left and Green on Wednesday alone. "We need decisions," it said. This applies, for example, for the Berlin police act (ASOG), which is to be reformed. Because the interior Senator Andreas hostage (SPD) and the party would be located. However, the Left block against "the increasingly comprehensive monitoring of skills" and a "forward displacement of the police intervention threshold".

a Legal review of the "Hire cap" is to want to negotiate until the end of February

Next you still. Now the group leaders of the three parties in government to solve the Blockade. You are likely to put together a package, because there are internal political operations, the Left and Greens are particularly important. The Reform of the referendum law, Assembly law, and the freedom of Information act. Complemented by the introduction of a police officer. All of this had taken the Senator for the interior, so the charge of the two coalition partners, "hostage". Now, efforts are made to liberation, action.

After all, the gloomy mood brightened during the coalition meeting, something. It was even laughed. Some of the "misunderstandings" between the government partners had been informed, reported by participants facilitated. That was the case, for example, for the discussion of a country's legal "Rent cap", the SPD politician publicly into the game. The complicated test of whether the Senate should regulate the Rent, at least in Parts of the city without the consent of the Federal government, should also be with the help of external lawyers by the end of February to complete. The Left is not insured, that they are evil, because the social Democrats are forging ahead with the idea. They saw the "Rent cap" not as a rival to the planned referendum "Deutsche Wohnen and co. to expropriate", supported by the Left.

Then there was a spontaneous, brief discussion of the plans for the Checkpoint Charlie. Urban development Senator Katrin Lompscher (Left) had made day-to-day mirror-Interview with new proposals for the design of the historically significant area, two days later, the SPD-Bauexpertin Iris Spranger. Now the further procedure to be discussed for the preparation of a development plan for the Checkpoint Charlie on Tuesday in the Senate. Not for the first Time.
