Horst Seehofer ready for concessions at the upper limit

Sunday, August 20th, 2017 | World News

Horst Seehofer is at the upper limit for the influx of refugees, but is ready for concessions. The Prime Minister and CSU's CEO is looking quite different from the situation two years ago.

"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."

Shortly before Christmas 2016, Seehofer told the German press agency: "There will be no government involvement of the CSU without an upper limit of 200,000 for the Federal Republic of Germany with the immigration." The background was the strong refugee situation in autumn 2015.

  However, the head of the CDU and Chancellor Angela Merkel strongly rejects a cap. It was not until the middle of July that she said – as in the ARD summer interview – "My upper position is clear: I do not accept it."

Seehofer guarantees "limit"
Seehofer had left the explicit demand for an upper limit in a coalition agreement more often, and warned the Union of a new dispute over the issue. The party chairman said that he had often seen that the CSU's proposals had only been rejected, and that they had nevertheless landed in the coalition agreement.

 He said, "We guarantee that this triangle will come: humanity, integration, limitation. If I say that, the" upper limit "applies.

Satisfied with situation
According to Seehofer in the TV interview, the CSU will ensure that future achievements are secured for the future in a possible government formation after the Bundestag election. 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.

This year the ceiling would probably 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.

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".

"The voter does not know what he gets"
SPD chancellor candidate Martin Schulz told the "Tagesspiegel": "For Horst Seehofer, politics is only tactics, he plays with themes and he plays with people." The SPD is fighting for "the CSU is no longer a member of the next federal government".

The Greens have made an upper limit explicitly the exclusion criterion for a coalition after the Bundestag elections. "The upper limit is and will remain unconstitutional," said Bundestagsfraktionsff Katrin Göring-Eckardt. "The Union is running the same game as 2013 with the toll. The voters do not know what they get: the upper limit with Seehofer or no upper limit, as Merkel has promised."

The Bavarian landeschooler Eike Hallitzky said: "With his tactical tossing, Seehofer once more tries to pull his head out of the noose."
