Potsdam (dpa / bb) - The Brandenburg state parliament wants to debate the planned extension and partially tightening of the corona restrictions in a special session on Friday (8 a.m.).

The plenary session was requested by the AfD, which rejects any restriction.

In the debate, Prime Minister Dietmar Woidke (SPD) and Health Minister Ursula Nonnemacher (Greens) want to speak first.

AfD parliamentary group leader Hans-Christoph Berndt then wants to explain why his group rejects the tough cuts for citizens and companies despite the current high number of infections.

The cabinet then wants to decide on the new containment ordinance.

Particularly controversial with the municipalities is the regulation adopted by the heads of government of the federal and state governments, which is intended to limit the radius of movement of citizens in districts with high numbers of infections to 15 kilometers.

There is still no precise regulation for Brandenburg.

The Brandenburger Landkreistag had requested that this should only apply to tourist trips.

Because, especially in rural areas, it should be possible to go shopping and visit the doctor, which cannot always be done in the vicinity.
