Berlin – Violent debate on Thursday in the Berlin House of Representatives!
After the reigning mayor Müller (53, SPD) intervened, his foreign minister Sawsan Chebli (40, SPD) suddenly left the hall!
The opposition has previously attacked Chebli for a statement on Twitter. She had written about the events in Chemnitz: "We are (…) too disorganized, too timid … We are too little radical". She has removed these rules later.
► CDU and AfD told Chebli Thursday that they had been fueled, especially with the word "radical". Müller defended his secretary of state: "Neither Mrs. Chebli, nor anyone else from the state government wanted to say that it would become violence." He also said, "You do not have to say it like that, it's not my choice of words."
This statement can be understood as a distance from Chebli. Müller even repeated his words: "Again, one can say it in another way."
Not clear why Chebli left the room
Will Chebli leave the room because Müller had taken her away? That is what an observer says. Others say that Chebli was touched how much Mueller defended her. But then she was too much and she had to recover. A short time later she returned to the hall.
However, it was not the first time on Thursday that Müller adapted the words of Sawsan Chebli. Already on 4 September he had said at a reception of the SPD party: "The rule of law is never radical" – and thus took an indirect position. In the SPD it is said that Chebli leige comes to independent escapades – to the annoyance of the president Mueller. For example, she proposed the compulsory visit of school classes to concentration camp monuments without an appointment. She also concentrates too much on her victim role because she is threatened anonymously. That is why she must have her declarations approved in the future.
Neither Muller nor Chebli wanted to talk about the incident on Thursday.
It was about this tweet
On 27 August, Chebli tweeted on the subject Chemnitz, wrote: "We are (still) more, but too quiet, too comfortable, too divided, too disorganized, too timid … We are not enough radical". A short time later she canceled the tweet and explained with two follow-up messages.
