Munich (dpa / lby) - After the explosion in costs and the long delay in the second Munich S-Bahn trunk line, the opposition factions of the Greens, SPD and FDP in the Bavarian state parliament have now officially launched the announced committee of inquiry. On Thursday, they jointly applied for Parliament's most stringent control instrument to clarify whether the state government could be accused of misconduct. As the parliamentary groups jointly announced, the list of questions includes 72 questions in ten subject areas.
"When did the state government know about the cost increases and delays in the second main S-Bahn line in Munich? Did they do anything to avert this catastrophic development? And why wasn't the public informed?" These are the key questions, it said.
The three opposition parties want to set up the investigative committee in December. The body of eleven members (CSU five, Green two, Free Voters, SPD, FDP, AfD one member each) is under time pressure: He must have finished his work before the state elections in autumn 2023.
After the Greens, SPD and FDP also want to set up a committee of inquiry into the financing of the Nuremberg Future Museum, there will be four committees of inquiry in the state parliament in the state election year - this is a record at least in the recent past. A first such body is already dealing with the mask affair, a second again with the racially motivated crimes of the "National Socialist Underground". In Bavaria, one fifth of the members of the state parliament can force the establishment of a committee of inquiry.
