SPD: Andrea Nahles wants to put a stop to critic Florian Post


He annoyed her for a long time, now wants SPD parliamentary leader Andrea Nahles and punish one of its sharpest critics: The Bavarian member of parliament Florian Post is to lose SPIEGEL information his seat on the Economic Committee and thus also his previous role as a reporter for the arms export policy.

At the moment, a decision is being prepared, according to the fraction leader. Officially, the step is justified mathematically: Because an SPD MP, the Dortmund Marco Bülow, last year left the group, the SPD must give a place in the Economic Committee.

When asked which parliamentarians are sent to the committees, "the presence and deviations from the voting behavior of the parliamentary group are taken into account," said the Parliamentary Group Leader Carsten Schneider the MIRROR.

"You should not constantly profile yourself at the expense of your own faction"

Post recently voted as one of six SPD members against the reform of paragraph 219a. Again and again he criticized the course of the party leadership. Nahles recently complained in an in-house meeting, Post using it "only as an abortion".
