Schwerin (dpa / mv) - The state parliament of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania comes together for a special session in Schwerin this Friday.

First of all, the new Interior Minister Torsten Renz (CDU) is to be sworn in.

The previous chairman of the CDU parliamentary group succeeds Lorenz Caffier (CDU), who resigned after a private purchase of a weapon in early 2018 by a possibly right-wing extremist man.

Caffier had only admitted the purchase after public pressure.

Then Prime Minister Manuela Schwesig (SPD) wants to issue a government statement on the resolutions of the federal-state summit on the corona measures.

The federal and state governments agreed on Wednesday to extend the partial lockdown.

Numerous restrictions - such as closings of restaurants, cultural and leisure facilities - will remain in place until December 20th.

Schools and daycare centers should remain open.

A corona summit is planned in Schwerin on Saturday.

There, the resolutions are to be incorporated into the state ordinance, which will then come into force on December 1st.
