“” The Federal Assembly pleasure, freedom and self-determination will make a contribution to a transparent and active democracy the Federal Assembly for enjoyment, freedom and self-determination “is a central, nationwide platform of associations and initiatives, which is against the increasing restriction of personal freedom by State paternalism” and bans to defend. Smoking bans have resulted in guests, hosts, the Executive and legislature in recent months in Germany emotional discussions between citizens. The new rules required by the Federal Constitutional Court in 2008 are already in place in several provinces, others must follow suit this year. Large parts (of the smoking and catering jobs-creating) voters are confused, quality of life and jobs are threatened. And last but not least we are experiencing now in Saarland, how quickly enjoy political party positions on the altar could be sacrificed to the power. The issues of smoking and alcohol prevention find no place in the campaign. Almost any positions to be found also in the election programmes of parties. Many voters are now wondering which positions and intentions or their parliamentary candidates during the next legislature with regard to these two issues to put their party remember.
On the occasion of the Saxon Landtag election, one of the members of our Federal Assembly GFS conducted a survey among the candidates and the parties (cf.). . The results show that there is a wide spectrum of views between the official positions of the parties as well as the personal views of the candidates on the issue of benefit restrictions. It is assumed that the Federal parties follow in turn other positions and objectives. Unless one, because the legislative options in the Federal Government are different than at the country level, or unless that at the federal level, traditional, typical influences exhibit less weight. The voter has a right to be informed about the objectives of the parties.
For this purpose, which has Federal Assembly for enjoyment, freedom and self-determination at their meeting in August 2009, decided to question which came to parties and candidates to the elections and to open positions interested voters, as also the still undecided (non) voters in the short term before the election. She wants to make a modest contribution to a transparent and active democracy thus. The results will be provided on September 17, 2009, ten days before the election, on the various sites of our associations/initiatives, a further press release, as well as a nationwide distributed info-flyer.
