Parliamentary group (Bundestag)

a parliamentary group in the German Bundestag is the union of at least 5% of its members. These must belong to the same party, or parties, which do not compete with one another in the individual Lands of the Federal Republic. Unions, which do not fulfill these conditions, can be recognized as a parliamentary group only ifthe Bundestag agrees.

The Bundestag faction CDU/CSU is an example of a parliamentary group, whose members belong to different parties. The CSU can be selected only in Bavaria and the CDU only in the remaining Lands of the Federal Republic. The two parties compete thus not with one another and can thus in the Bundestaga common parliamentary group educate.

However parliamentary groups can accept also delegates of other parties or non-party delegates than guests.

Parliamentary groupings, which reach the parliamentary group status, enjoy numerous rights: A meeting room in the areas of the federal daily is entitled to them , it places members of the Council of Elders and receives additional moneysfor the parliamentary group guidance.

A grouping of at least 3 delegate, who receives less than these 5% of the seats, can be recognized as group. Thus however no large rights are connected. Persons from groupings, which not when group are recognized, are considered as parliamentary groupless (see: Parliamentary group-loose delegates).

The parliamentary groups in the parliament are not to be confounded with the actual parties. These work outside of the parliament and try only to continue their work by the delegates in the parliament. The delegates of the party can educate their own parliamentary group in each parliament, alsothe direction of the party to occasionally also differ can.
