Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania: decision on the future of Strasburg's mayor

Strasburg (dpa / mv) - In Strasburg (Uckermark) in the Vorpommern-Greifswald district, the citizens will decide this Sunday on the future of the head of administration Heike Hammermeister-Friese (CDU). There is a referendum on this, as a spokeswoman for the city said on Tuesday. The city representatives had decided in September. According to a majority, "trust in the mayor's actions and work has been permanently disturbed." There has been a dispute between the two sides for months. The mayor has so far declined to resign.

The 43-year-old Hammermeister-Friese was directly elected for seven years in 2018. At that time, she prevailed in a runoff against an SPD candidate. A two-thirds majority is required in MV to vote out a directly elected mayor. This majority must also make up one third of those entitled to vote.

In the northeast, votes have failed several times, most recently in Teterow (Rostock district). As the only case in a larger city, a deselection was successful in Schwerin in 2008. At that time, a CDU head of administration who had come under criticism was voted out again. Strasburg is the only Uckermark city in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, has 27 districts and around 3800 voters.
