Appointment of energy & climate committees in next government likely to take months

Tagesspiegel Background

The Bundestag, Germany’s parliament, is currently in a transition phase that is likely to take some time and which will delay the appointment of the parliamentary committees for climate and energy, Jakob Schlandt writes for the Tagesspiegel Background Energie & Klima. “The Bundestag’s first constituent session has to take place 30 days after the election, hence on 24 October,” Schlandt writes. But while the parliament will be formally operative from that date, the committees, the most important legislative organs, are unlikely to be ready before months of negotiation, he says.
