Dear Reader, I am glad that you are interested in our Landtag, the State Parliament of the Saxons.
“All state authority is derived from the people.” This statement from the Saxon Constitution reminds us that parliamentary democracy, and Saxony as a constitutional state, were restored thanks to the peaceful revolution of 1989. It also reminds us that parliamentary democracy allows the greatest amount of freedom, but is also the most difficult form of government. It depends on the active involvement of its citizens.
Dr. Matthias Rößler
President of the State Parliament
