The German Bundestag is bigger than ever before in its history – there are 736 MPs in parliament, while the standard size is 598. Bundestag President Bärbel Bas (SPD) no longer wants to accept this without complaint. She is now calling on Parliament to finally do something about it. “I am emphatically appealing to the parliamentary groups in the Bundestag to come to an agreement on electoral law reform very soon and with a large majority,” Basder said Süddeutsche Zeitung. “A clear decision on the main features of an electoral law reform” must be “made by the beginning of 2023 at the latest”.
