Stuttgart (dpa / lsw) - Less than nine weeks before the state election, the parliamentary groups shift up a gear. In exams this week they discussed - sometimes face-to-face, sometimes digital - how they wanted to position themselves in terms of content for the next few months. The CDU parliamentary group switched on the candidates for the federal chairmanship - Friedrich Merz, Armin Laschet and Norbert Röttgen - one after the other for half an hour each. The SPD mainly dealt with the pandemic - Federal Finance Minister Olaf Scholz (SPD) reported to the MPs about the financial consequences of Corona. In Pforzheim, the FDP dealt with the corona strategy and the committee of inquiry into the Expo pavilion. Today the parliamentary groups of SPD, FDP and CDU present the results of the exams. The Greens will not present their exam results until Friday.
