Become a police and data protection officer "very soon" presents

To months of standstill the filling of the two vacant positions of police and data protection officer is imminent. According to information from the Tagesspiegel, the leaders of the government factions made a decisive breakthrough last weekend.

During a meeting of the leaders of the parliamentary groups, the priority should have been to clarify open questions about the ongoing budget negotiations. On the sidelines, the SPD, Greens and Left apparently also agreed on joint personnel proposals. Both positions are filled by an election in the House of Representatives. According to consistent information, this should happen before the summer break.

The government partners had agreed on confidentiality about who exactly will take over the posts out of concern about short-term cancellations. Individual MPs spoke of a “muzzle” and referred to a residual risk. Others reported to the Tagesspiegel that the knot had “burst” and that the recruitment process would “now be done quickly”. There are “names that can be agreed upon,” it said. These should be announced “very soon”.

There were indications of who could fill the post, at least in the case of the future head of the data protection authority. According to consistent information, a woman is to succeed Maja Smoltczyk, who left office in October.

Allegedly, the applicant is or was active in the data protection authority of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.

This information could not be verified on Tuesday.
