JANE BURGERMEISTER REPORT:’Heads of German and French parliaments make pact against more banker bailouts’

Heads of German and French parliaments make pact against more banker bailouts

The President of the German Parliament, Norbert Lammert, and his French counterpart, the President of the National Assembly, Bernard Accoyer have issued a joint declaration at a meeting in Überlingen, Germany, insisting that national parliaments be given more decision-making powers over the massive transfer of tax money to banks under various bailout schemes, which are either rushed through parliaments or not put to parliaments at all.

Lammert said no “general empowerment” had been given to Germany’s Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble and  Chancellor Angela Merkel, who had not yet even given the German Bundestag a draft of the legislation for the new mega eurozone bailout fund for the banks due to come into operation in 2013.

“Das täte ihnen, Bundestagspräsident Norbert Lammert und Nationalversammlungs-Vorsitzendem Bernard Accoyer, echt furchtbar leid. “Aber das wird nicht reichen”, so Lammert. (2)

Es gäbe im Bundestag leider keine Mehrheit für eine “Generalermächtigung” des Finanzministers Wolfgang Schäuble und der Kanzlerin Angela Merkel, die wochenlang dem Bundestag nicht einmal einen Vertragsentwurf über den geforderten Europäischen Währungsfonds, nein, “Europäischen Stabilisierungsmechanismus” vorgelegt hatten. Schäuble hatte erst diesen Dienstag den Abgeordneten einen Vertragsantwurf geschickt. Der Vorsitzende des Europa-Ausschusses des Bundestages, Gunther Krichbaum, hatte dies bereits Anfang Mai von Schäuble gefordert. (3)”
