Chancellor Olaf Scholz wants to bring about a decision on the third relief package for the drastic price increases "very quickly". However, the SPD politician did not give an exact time at the beginning of the federal government's closed conference at Schloss Meseberg in Brandenburg.
The deliberations will continue in the course of this week. It is about getting a relief package “as tailor-made as possible, as efficient as possible, as targeted as possible” on the way. It should mean that no one is left alone with their problems.
Chancellor evokes good mood
In addition to energy supply and security policy, the two-day closed meeting of the cabinet will also deal with vocational training and digitization. At the meeting in Meseberg, it should be ensured "that we as the federal government work closely together," said the Chancellor. "It will be a closed conference where there is a good mood and the willingness to work closely together in a serious situation for the good of the country."
In the past few days, the tone within the coalition had sharpened significantly. From the ranks of the SPD there was recently clear criticism of Vice Chancellor Robert Habeck (Greens) because of the problems with the controversial gas levy. In return, the Greens attacked Chancellor Scholz.
