Schwerin (dpa / mv) - The CDU has made serious allegations against Science Minister Bettina Martin (SPD). "Ms. Martin is a total failure as Minister of Science, she is the minister without a face. I also attribute this to the fact that she is essentially not in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania," said the Secretary General of the CDU Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Daniel Peters, on Wednesday . "As a result, there could be a violation of the right to register or the state election law or the law on members of parliament." He assumes that the state returning officer will examine the process ex officio.
A spokesman for Minister Martin rejected the allegations as false. Martin has her main residence in Schwerin, he explained on request. Her work as a state minister and member of parliament means that she has her main focus in life in MV. Martin was Minister of Education from 2019 to 2021.
The parliamentary director of the AfD parliamentary group, Thore Stein, described the accusation as "outrageous". It had to be clarified what was wrong with the allegations, he demanded.
