Merz said he had always been of the opinion that you "should exercise as a simple member of Parliament" in "to a limited extent in professional activities". "But it needs full transparency. To combine the Deputy mandate with professional activities – you can't.“
Merz is regarded as a political friend Amthors. On ash Wednesday, the former Union leader at a Traditional herring dinner was occurred in the constituency of the 27-year-old Bundestag Deputy in Ueckermünde, in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
Merz said, he regretted very much what had happened, because he treasures Amthor "as a people, as members and also as a type". "I hope that he solves the case and his political work can continue."Updated Date: 18 June 2020, 12:19
