  9. 9. Economy • Germany has the world's most technologically advanced economy after the US and Japan • GDP of 2.49 trillion Euro (2009) makes Germany 4th largest economically powerful country after US, Japan and China • Highly export orientated economy (still worldwide leading country in Export-GDP-relation, China is catching up) • Strong regulation of the labour market and a costly social system reduce the overall competitiveness of Germany’s economy. 9
  10. 10. Economy • The integration and upgrading of the eastern German economy remains a costly long-term problem (annual transfers from the west amount to roughly €100 billion). • Political and economic integration of Europe brings opportunities and challenges to the German economy; i.e. with the adoption of the common European currency, Germany no longer has its own currency, and thereby less control over the economy, as the Bundesbank is no longer able to set interest rates. 10

  12. 12. Impact of the economic crisis on Germany Germany is highly shattered by the economic crisis: • After years of strong growth German economy is facing a recession of 4-6 %, the highest since the foundation of the Federal Republic in 1949 • A lot of companies are facing financial difficulties since consumers and investors are holding back their money • The German parliament has decided on cyclical development programs to stimulate economic growth worth more than 50 billion Euros (246 billion Ringgit) • Measures include government loans to major companies and loan securities for banking institutions, public investments as well as amenities for the people such as tax reductions 12
  13. 13. Impact of the economic crisis on Germany Recent Events: • Other car companies are also troubled, mainly because of a high decrease in exports. • The German government has started a program, paying serious benefits to people who scrap their old car and buy a new one instead to support demand. • So far it is a great success with many people rushing to buy but mainly low price car companies benefit while German car companies are mainly in the upper price sector. • The German Federal Government released two stimulus packages concerning the overcoming of the financial crisis 13
  14. 14. The German Political System 14
  15. 15. The Political System • The political system of the Federal Republic of Germany refers to a federal republic, with 16 Laender (states), which have own constitutions according to the Basic Law. • There are complex checks and balances to safeguard against a repetition of dictatorship. Political rights, democratic institutions and the federal system receive special protection by the German constitution (the Basic Law). • The basic law and the constitutional rights it embodies are protected by the Federal Constitutional Court. Further, these rights are enforceable. 15
  16. 16. The Basic Law (the German Constitution) Chapter 1: Basic rights (equality before the law; right to privacy, private property & education; freedoms of speech, information, expression, movement & association, etc.) Chapter 2: Structure & powers of the federation & states Chapter 3: The federal institutions Chapter 4: Federal legislation & its implementation Chapter 5: Administration of justice Chapter 6: Public finance & taxation 16
  17. 17. Separation of Powers (German Federalism) • Vertical & Horizontal Division of Power: – Horizontal: Executive, Legislative & Judiciary – Vertical: National, State & Communal levels • The vertical separation of power assigns different areas of responsibility to each level; i.e. education is a responsibility of the state governments, while foreign policy is a task of the national government. • Separate elections are held for the 3 vertical divisions of power. 17

  21. 21. The Bundestag (Federal Assembly) • The Bundestag is the direct representative body of the people of the Federal Republic of Germany. • The Bundestag has decisive legislative authority and thus is the most important organ of the state. • Some legislation requires permission from the Bundesrat (the representation of the states). • The Members of the Bundestag are from different political parties who are elected according to the mixed member proportional representation system. • Candidates are normally nominated by a party, but independent individuals can also stand. 21
  22. 22. The Bundesrat (Federal Council) • The Bundesrat represents the interests of the Länder (states) at the federal level • Legislative & administrative functions, incl. the right to initiate legislation • Absolute veto powers in – bills amending the constitution – bills affecting state finances or the administrative sovereignty of states • Formed by Representatives from and appointed by the 16 state-level governments. (No elections.) (total seats: 69) • The composition of the Bundesrat is determined by the composition of the state-level governments, and may thus change when one of the 16 states holds an election. • So the Bundesrat is not directly elected (representatives and Ministerpraesidenten of the Laender) 22

  24. 24. Type of Electoral System • According to international taxonomy standards: • Mixed-member proportional system (2 votes per person - Direct and indirect candidates) • Definition: • A system in which a proportion of the parliament (usually half) is elected from plurality-majority electoral districts, while the remaining members are chosen from PR lists, the list seats compensate for any disproportional produced by the electoral district results. However, every seat from a electoral district can be kept, which might increase the total number of MP’s in parliament (“additional mandates”) • Historical background: • It was devised to overcome the weaknesses of previous political systems, which have proven unstable in German history: • The absolute majority system of the German Empire was characterised by a lack of political participation, as power was held by a “manufactured” (unrepresentative) majority. • The pure proportional representation system of the Weimar Republic (1919-1933) weakened the state, paving the way for the abrogation of the constitution by Adolf Hitler in 1933 24

  49. 49. Coalition management tools In the German practice of coalition management and conflict resolution four tools are usually employed: 1. Regular routine coalition talks 2. Regular routine co-ordination meetings of the parliamentary fractions 3. Meetings of the chairmen of the coalition member parties (elephant rounds) 4. Working groups of the coalition partners 49

  52. 52. Coalition/alliances challenges Challenge No 1: How to make a coalition work? • Rule No. 1: Discipline • Rule No. 2: Discipline • Rule No. 3: Discipline • Rule No. 4: Test, retest, retest (research, opinion polls, and focus groups etc.) • Rule No. 5: “Go where the people, the voters are” 52
  53. 53. Requirement: message discipline Organise your Who us them thoughts says what? us us us about about us them them them them about about us them 53
  54. 54. Challenge No 2: How to capture the median voter? If parties A and B want to catch the median voters, they should move towards the center. The red and blue areas represent the voters that A and B expect they have already captured. 54
  55. 55. Challenge No. 3: How to deal with factors affecting the party behaviour? 1. Executive-legislature relationship: parliamentary/presidential democracy 2. Electoral system: majoritarian vs. proportional (number of parties = their ideological range and mutual compatibility), party-centred vs. candidate-centred (internal cohesion of parties) 3. Social cleavages: cross-cutting vs. non-cross-cutting (issue-based or cutting across issues), extreme vs. moderate 55
  56. 56. Challenge No. 4: How to deal with the negative perception of coalition governments? “In a coalition government the knives remain out among the partners and they are being perpetually sharpened. In a coalition alliance that is very different. Here the partners have to wait for open criticism after they have unseated the current government. Coalitions in a democratic set-up can therefore only be the second-best-choice because they cannot ensure 100 % concerted action.” However, in political practice of almost all democracies, especially of the parliamentary types, Westminster as well as list- proportional systems, coalition governments have become the rule and not the exception of political decision-making and democratic governance. 56
  57. 57. Challenge No. 5: How to explain and justify the entered coalition? • The entered coalition has to be – explained to the political party members as well as – justified to the political party voters. 57
  58. 58. Challenge No. 6: How to keep the own political identity? During the coalition, the political parties have to avoid to: – loose the own political profile – become swallowed by the bigger coalition partner • Concurrently they have to: – Distinguish them self from the coalition partner to keep their own recognisability 58
  59. 59. Challenge No. 7: How to find exit solutions? In specific situations, the political parties have to find solutions to exit the coalition: - power struggles within the coalition partner/partners - internal party conflicts - specific political themes or issues Exit solutions could be to: - chancel the coalition contract - increase the political pressure on the cooperating party 59
