Bavaria: Schulze: demands on the federal government for G7 costs are too high

Munich/Elmau (dpa/lby) - From the point of view of the Greens in the Bavarian state parliament, the fact that the federal and state governments have not yet agreed on the financing of the meeting in Elmau after the G7 summit is also due to excessive demands from the state government. "Seven years ago, it was a matter of course for the CSU that the federal and state governments would finance the G7 summit," said parliamentary group leader Katharina Schulze of the German Press Agency. "Now the CSU is no longer part of the federal government and suddenly the federal government is supposed to assume 100 percent of the costs." It's very obvious what the CSU is pulling off - "and it's clear that it doesn't work that way."

At the first G7 summit in Elmau in 2015, the federal and state governments had stipulated in an administrative agreement before the meeting that the federal government would pay a flat rate of 40 million euros to Bavaria for additional security measures. At that time, the Free State of Bavaria incurred costs of around 133 million euros.

Before the summit meeting last week, the federal and state governments could not agree on what share Berlin would take on. "We are still struggling with the federal government for the final financing. The commitments so far are still too little," said Prime Minister Markus Söder (CSU) on Thursday of the "Augsburger Allgemeine". On request, the Federal Ministry of Finance only said that no information on ongoing talks could be given. In the run-up to the summit, the Free State calculated total costs of 188 million euros.
