The Building Energy Act should be passed by the Bundestag before the summer break. The Constitutional Court prevented that. In “Maybrit Illner” Alexander Dobrindt (CSU) complains about the arrogant political style of the traffic light coalition. Green leader Ricarda Lang admits mistakes.

Dhe Building Energy Act has been stopped for the time being. On Wednesday prohibited by the Federal Constitutional Court the second and third reading in the Bundestag in this session week. Therefore, the originally planned vote before the parliamentary summer break is no longer possible.

“Heating, household, downturn – traffic lights in crisis mode?” asked Maybrit Illner in her ZDF talk show the party chairwoman of the Greens, Ricarda Lang, the CSU politician Alexander Dobrindt, the DGB chairwoman Yasmin Fahimi, the economist Ulrike Malmendier and Dagmar Rosenfeld, editor-in-chief of WELT AM SONNTAG.

“Of course I’m sorry too,” said the Green Party leader ruefully. The traffic light government failed to provide security on the “important issue”. Instead, the public dispute dominated. However, the decision of the Federal Constitutional Court does not affect the content of the law, but the procedure, emphasized Lang.

“Why the rush on this law?” Rosenfeld asked. There are “political considerations” for this, but “no factual justification”. She did not accept Lang’s argument of planning security with reference to the lack of heat planning.

Alexander Dobrindt criticized the verdict from Karlsruhe as “a real smack” for the federal government and its arrogant political style. The traffic light coalition created “maximum uncertainty”. Although the constitutional court evaluated the procedure, the content of the amendment is also a law that “in truth no one understands”. Therefore, according to the CSU politician, there is still a need for clarification. “Politically, of course, the content is still being questioned,” he said.

“Yes, for you,” countered trade unionist Yasmin Fahimi. “But obviously not for the government.” She also blamed the “communicative catastrophe” and “poor political management” of the traffic light parties. But she is surprised at the escalation of this conflict, said Fahimi. The dispute is discussed instead of the content. It is “slowly becoming ridiculous” that “we are now beginning to discuss the dispute of the dispute”.

For the Greens, the main opponents are “the problems in this country”

Ulrike Malmendier, on the other hand, was lenient. The GEG is working on an “old problem” by implementing “something completely new”. “It won’t always go completely smoothly,” explained the economy. “There will of course be imperfection.”

Rosenfeld judged less mercifully that the “hiccup” about the law contributed to the increased AfD poll values. From her point of view, the main reason is that the “reality experienced by people” does not match the “reality told by politics”. The resulting frustration is discharged in the party’s approval ratings.

“It’s too simple an analysis for me,” Fahimi replied. Rather, it was “greater fuel for the AfD” that CSU boss Markus Söder and CDU chairman Friedrich Merz got involved in the “completely insane culture war” of the right-wing populists.

Merz had made the Greens the “main opponent”. “We’re all in competition with each other,” Dobrindt put it into perspective. “Where democracy ends, there the opposition begins – and that’s right-wing.” He has “no romantic feelings” towards the Greens, but the “political opponent” is the AfD.

The “democratic parties,” Lang confirmed, are “competitors” and “sometimes partners,” but they are “not enemies.” These are outside the democratic spectrum. The Green politician named “the problems in this country” as her main opponent.

One of these is the lack of economic growth. Germany has “come out of last year in a stable manner” and has opportunities to settle “huge new future technologies”, argued Lang. Malmendier was even more optimistic. The situation is “much better” than would have been expected a year and a half ago given the war in Ukraine and the corona and energy crises. “We’re not in the boom phase,” said the economist, but Germany is in a “super starting position” to “play right up front.”
