NRW: Prime Minister Wüst should testify in the flood investigation committee


North Rhine-Westphalia’s Prime Minister Hendrik Wüst (CDU) is expected to answer questions in the state parliament’s flood disaster investigation committee before Christmas. This emerges from an application by the parliamentary groups in the governing coalition, CDU and FDP, on which the “Rheinische Post” reported (Wednesday). The proposed date is December 22nd. The head of the State Chancellery, Nathanael Liminski, is supposed to come then.

A spokeswoman for the FDP parliamentary group said the motion underscores the government parliamentary groups’ interest in clearing up the matter. The parliamentary groups’ motion also states that the committee wanted to gain knowledge of how civil protection could be improved during this legislative period.

In July, Wüst was still the state transport minister. The opposition accuses the state government of having reacted too cautiously to the flood disaster. From the point of view of the opposition, the government should have supported the affected municipalities more quickly and warned them earlier. (dpa)
