It is a central point of controversy in probing of a possible new grand coalition: But union wants to persuade SPD to launch a joint application for family reunification in next two weeks. "In January, SPD, toger with us in Bundestag, should ensure that family reunification remains exposed to subsidiary beneficiaries," said vice-Chairman of Bundestag Group of European Union, Stephan Harbarth (CDU). His colleague, Armin Schuster, said that CDU is "on an agreement parallel to exploratory and coalition negotiations". We do not want to provoke SPD, so re is now no preparation for a separate union application.
The family reunification is still suspended until mid-March and is controversial between Union and SPD. CDU/CSU wants to extend it furr, SPD rejects it. In addition, SPD-led Foreign Office is prepared to issue visas again from mid-March. The ministry refers to current legal situation. However, Union declared it wrong that German embassies and consulates are now already issuing visa dates to family members of refugees with limited protection status for period after 16 March. The Foreign Office is thus using current negotiations for a possible new edition of Black-red coalition.
Refugees with limited protection status also include many civil war refugees from Syria. Unlike people who are recognised as being politically persecuted or under Geneva Convention, y are not allowed to bring in ir spouses and underage children at moment. The family reunification of parents to ir children is generally only allowed for minor refugees.
The Prime Minister of North Rhine-Westphalia, Armin Reunification (CDU), had recently proposed to restrict family for refugees with subsidiary protection status to hardship cases. In addition, y should be allowed to catch up with ir relatives, who could have been home and work.
While discussion is still underway, visa authorities of mainly affected embassies and consulate generals will accept appointment requests. This was announced at beginning of week from a response from Ministry of Foreign Affairs to a request from leftist politician Ulla Jelpke. Accordingly, Foreign Office and foreign representatives inform and advise persons concerned.
The domestic political spokesman of Union Bundestag Group, Stephan Mayer (CSU), warned in new Osnabrücker Zeitung: "The only foreign minister, Sigmar Gabriel, should avoid fact of avoid with regard to exploratory negotiations."Fachkräftezuwanderungs or immigration law
Meanwhile, furr agreements are emerging on third day of Union and SPD probing. According to a newspaper report, negotiating partners agreed on a law to control immigration of skilled workers to Germany. In case of a new edition of Grand coalition, y also want to expand fast Internet in Germany by 2025.
According to newspapers of editorial network Deutschlandaus, both are produced by a paper from Negotiating group economy, transport and digitisation. With Immigration Act, Union and SPD want to use report to control influx of qualified workers to Germany. However, name of law is still controversial. The Union advocates immigration law for skilled workers, SPD for immigration law.
In discussions principle is that nothing is agreed until everything is agreed. At start of round on Tuesday, SPD Bundestag group leader Andrea Nahles had blamed union. "It was very annoying that it was given yesterday by stabbings of intermediate results," she said. "I can only ask everyone in Union to shut down Jamaica mode now," Nahles warned. During failed Jamaica probing of Union, Greens and FDP, intermediary of talks had been leaked again and again. The last round of negotiations is scheduled for Thursday, with a session up to night on Friday.
