North Rhine-Westphalia: No government office in NRW: Green politicians disappointed

Dusseldorf (dpa / lnw) - The appointment and design of the Green ministries in the future first black-green state government in North Rhine-Westphalia are also causing disappointment in the ranks of the eco-party. The prominent member of the state parliament and former Green Party leader Arndt Klocke apparently feels ignored. "After twelve years as a specialist politician in the state parliament, I would have liked to help implement this coalition agreement from within the government," Klocke wrote in a personal statement on his website on Friday. "Our Greens' leadership decided otherwise."

The current Parliamentary State Secretary to the Federal Minister for Economics and Climate Protection, Oliver Krischer, is to become Minister for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Transport in North Rhine-Westphalia in the future.

Klocke, who had taken over the management of the transport working group for the Greens during the coalition negotiations, criticized the fact that there should no longer be an independent transport ministry in the most populous federal state. "The tasks of the mobility turnaround would have justified an independent house in our large federal state." He wished the designated minister Krischer "a lot of success and a good hand in the diverse challenges". The "Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung" reported on Klocke's statement.

In the WDR program "Westpol", the Green agricultural politician Norwich Rüsse also criticized the departmental layout. He thinks it was a mistake that the Greens agreed to break up the environment and agriculture ministries, he said. The agricultural department goes to the CDU. Rüsse had led the working group on environment, agriculture, nature and consumer protection for the Greens in the coalition negotiations.

On Saturday, the party conferences of the CDU and the Greens had confirmed the first black-green coalition agreement for NRW and thus also the division of ministries with a large majority. Prime Minister Hendrik Wüst (CDU), who previously led a CDU/FDP coalition, is to be re-elected in the state parliament on Tuesday with the votes of the CDU and the Greens. The new cabinet is scheduled to be sworn in on Wednesday.
