The German Bundestag has voted to reduce the number of representatives

From the next elections, the number of MPs, which had grown to 736, will be reduced to 630.

Members of the Bundestag have voted to reduce the number of members of the German parliament starting with the next election, which will be held in 2025, according to Spiegel.

400 deputies voted “for” the adoption of the bill proposed by the ruling coalition, 261 – against, 23 more abstained.

Now the number of seats in the German parliament will be limited to 630, which is 106 less than today.

Before this, the number of representatives entering the parliament varied every election. Each voter in Germany has two votes in elections. Citizens can vote for a specific candidate and a party list. This led to the fact that in the Bundestag it was necessary to distribute additional mandates in order to correctly reflect the will of the voters, and over time the number of representatives continued to grow.

Today, the country’s parliament will be elected only on party lists, which means that a fixed number of seats can be set.

The opposition considers the new electoral reform unfair. Because it can happen that a candidate wins a direct mandate in a constituency, but still does not enter the Bundestag, because the winning party won less than 5%.

So far, parties have also entered the Bundestag according to the number of votes they received in direct elections, if they received less than five percent at the national level, but received at least three direct mandates.

Earlier it was reported that the Verkhovna Rada terminated the powers of three people’s representatives from the banned party Opposition Platform for Life.
