Contribution earthing stopped: ARD and ZDF want before the Federal Scarf Court

After Saxony-Anhalt blocked the increase in the broadcasting contribution, the public service broadcasters now want to contact the Federal Scarf Court. "A catchy complaint is unfortunately inevitable. Without sufficient, independent financing, the program is rooted in all regions of Germany, including suffering", said the ARD chairman Tom Buhrow.

Also ZDF director Thomas Bellut said he see no other possible way than the corridor to Karlsruhe. The public service broadcasting is in this procedure "obviously became the game ball of politics in a federal state".

Country coalition shortly before break

Previously, Sachsen-Anhes de Minister Prosident Reiner Haseloff (CDU) after multi-weekly coalition dispute, after multilingual coalition dispute, had the bill for the State Treaty to increase the broadcasting contribution. This prevents a vote in the state parliament, which was factually blocking the higher broadcasting contribution. He had only with consent from all federal tutstands as planned in January can come into force – and only if all the country parliaments were formally decided by the end of December. Not all the Lander have agreed: in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the vote on Wednesday on the program, Thuringen will probably vote after shifting only in the week before Christmas.

The state CDU stressed despite numerous crisis meetings with the federal partners uninterrupted that they under no circumstances of the broadcasting fee by 86 cents to 18.36 euros to 1. January 2021 will agree. The co-regending social democrats and green wanted to carry out the project of all countries. The CDU had to prevail its Veto against the will of the coalition partners with the votes of oppositional AFD. This rejects the increase and the system of the broadcasting contribution itself. A joint coordination of his CDU with the AFD wanted Haseloff but definitely avoid.

"In the proceedings, the contribution discussion with the order question was completely mixed, which we consider as inadequately after the previous case-law. Neither sodarguments nor the independent recommendation of the KEF played a role", Criticized Buhrow the procedure in Saxony-Anhalt. Among other things, the past week had justified the National Minister of Interior Holger Stahlknecht justified the no of the CDU with a negative image of East Germany in the public broadcasters. He also criticized reporting with the "raised index finger of moralization".

What is from the increase?

Actually, the broadcasting fee should rise again for the first time since 2009 – from 17.50 euros to 18.36 euros. The independent Commission to determine the financial needs of broadcasters (KEF) had calculated the contribution plan of 86 cents based on the needs formulated by the broadcasters. When financing the public broadcasters, a financing chute of around 1.5 billion euros is predicted between 2021 and 2024. ARD, ZDF and Deutschlandradio, for which the broadcasting contribution is the main source of income, report their needs at the KEF.

If and if so, when the 86 cents plus still come, is not yet foreseeable. According to the legislation of the legislative Bernd Wood nail, about a preceded by the main proceedings preceded by the Federal Scarf Court a premier increase to 1. January – at least to a decision in the main proceedings. (With material of the DPA/
