Horst Seehofer moves away from the upper limit

Sunday, August 20th, 2017 | World News

In the "Bayernplan" she still stands, the upper limit for new refugees. For Prime Minister and CSU head Hoerst Seehofer it was even a coalition condition. He has now moved away from it.

Seehofer sees the upper limit for refugees no longer as a condition for a coalition after the Bundestag elections. "The situation has changed, the course in Berlin has changed," said the Bavarian Minister President in the summer interviews of the ARD in Berlin. "We now have much less immigration than when I brought this quote."

The CSU will ensure that the achievements are secured for the future in a possible government formation after the Bundestag elections. Seehofer had said he would not sign a coalition agreement without an upper limit.

  "I am satisfied with this"
In its own election program for the Bundestag election, the "Bavarian Plan", the CSU calls for an upper limit of 200,000 new refugees per year for Germany. Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU), on the other hand, has made an upper limit explicitly an exclusion criterion for a coalition after the Bundestag election.

This year, the upper limit probably would not be reached, said Seehofer. Only "the political existence" of this instrument had changed the situation. "I am satisfied with that." A set of rules for the fight against causes of fleeces, integration and the limitation of immigration will be agreed.

 Situation like 2015 should not be repeated
It was now time to win an election, said Seehofer. The CSU will guarantee "that the current situation will be maintained in the next few years, the low level of immigration, and that the year 2015 will not be repeated". He had often seen that CSU proposals had been rejected and that they were still in the coalition agreement.
