For the first time since the elections, the Bundestag meets with a new composition

For the first time, a month after the parliamentary elections in Germany, the Bundestag met in a new composition for a constituent meeting. This is reported by TASS.

Deputies must decide on a new chairman and deputy, as well as approve the regulations. In total, the 20th Bundestag has 736 parliamentarians, a record.

The agency clarifies that on the day of the constituent meeting of the parliament, the powers of the chancellor and ministers end, but since a new cabinet has not been formed in Germany, the current government ends its term only formally. Chancellor Angela Merkel and heads of departments will receive letters of leave after 18:00 Moscow time, but will continue to work.

Earlier, candidate for Chancellor Olaf Scholz announced the readiness of the Social Democratic, Green and Free Democratic Party parties to form the country’s government. After that, coalition negotiations were to start, which have been going on for a long time. Their result will be the achievement of a coalition agreement and the distribution of ministerial portfolios. Scholz noted that the FRG government could be formed by Christmas.
