Parliamentary party groups

Parliamentary parties are groups of at least six members who belong to the same party or are elected to the state parliament as a result of the proposals of the same party. Each member of the state parliament can only belong to one parliamentary party group. The parliamentary parties CDU, AfD, The Left, Alliance 90/THE GREEN PARTY and SPD are represented in the 7th Saxon State Parliament.

Duties and areas of influence

The parliamentary party groups are essential institutions of constitutional life and key factors in the formation of political will as part of the development of multi-party democracy. Their formation is based on the decision of the delegates which is made to exercise the free mandate. Their influence results from the following examples:

  • Parliamentary party groups can submit draft laws and applications to the State Parliament
  • The strongest parliamentary party group has the right to propose members for election as president
  • The proportional power of the parliamentary party groups determines the formation of the executive committees and parliament committees, the election of the chairpersons and deputy chairpersons of the committees and in setting the speaking time in the plenum
