German Bundestag - in General :) (English)

Hello, my dear followers and friends,

I thought when I would talk about Berlin and Germany...I could also say in a few sentences what the German Bundestag is and about the German government in general.

Here you can see the Dome of the German Bundestag.

The German Bundestag is the name of the German parlament. In the parlament are 630 politicians, which are elected by the citizens. These politicians are also called: representatives.

The German Bundestag is also responsible for the laws and represent the wishes of the citizens.
That's why you also could say they represent the nation. All representatives meet in the assembly hall in the Reichstags Building. Here they discuss laws and vote for or against the laws.

The representatives are elected by the citizens only every 4 years. However only citizens who are 18 years old are allowed to vote. The citizens check two boxes on a ballot - one for the politician in the election district and the other one for the party they like.

The representatives also have other tasks, for example electing the Federal Chancellor. In the year 2013, the representatives elected Frau Merkel.

Besides of that, the representatives also advice Angela Merkel and her ministers because the Federal Chancellor is not allowed to pass new laws or spend too much money without her representatives.

Kind regards,
yours truly
