Berlin Senate discusses 100-day programme
The Berlin Senate meets on Saturday for a two-day meeting to discuss a 100-day programme.
100-day programme central topic of the meeting
The meeting in neighbouring Brandenburg will focus on the so-called 100-day programme of the red-green-red government, which has been in office for a good three weeks. In addition, the retreat serves to get to know each other better. There are many new faces among the senators, state secretaries and staff. The ambience should be right: The meeting will take place near Nauen in an idyllically situated conference hotel on a former country estate.
The governing mayor, Franziska Giffey (SPD), had already outlined core points of the 100-day programme in December in an interview with the Deutsche Presse-Agentur. According to this, the programme includes, among other things, the rapid preparation of a state budget, a broad alliance for housing and affordable rents, and the preparation of a "new start programme" for the economic sectors that have been battered by Corona.
New impulses for cooperation between Berlin and Brandenburg
Giffey also wants to give new impetus to cooperation between Berlin and Brandenburg. To this end, she will meet with Brandenburg's Prime Minister Dietmar Woidke (SPD) in Potsdam on Monday. Among the projects that the Senate wants to initiate within the first 100 days is the appointment of the announced expert commission, which is to examine the constitutionality, conditions and possibilities of implementing the successful referendum on the expropriation of large housing companies. After one year, the committee is to submit a recommendation to the senate on how to proceed.
