GEZ fee should increase by 3.2%!  Brandenburg state parliament rejects

The commission for determining the financial needs of broadcasters (KEF) has now called for an increase in the previous GEZ fees. The increase should be 3.2% or 0.56 euros per month. The first state parliament has already voted on it – in Brandenburg. The result is something like a slap in the face of the ÖRR: rejected.

Rejected: GEZ increase

This is a small sensation, because the ÖRR has broad political support on many issues. In addition to personal connections, which are often criticized, the support results from the fact that public broadcasting is also politically aligned and will not report “alternatively”, simply because the majority in the broadcasting councils does not exist can give away.

Regardless of how objective or non-objective critics consider the ÖRR to be, the construction itself is not designed to report “away from the state”. This is a completely value-free description.

Nevertheless, in Brandenburg, apart from the Greens, all other parties, the Union such as the Free Voters, the Left, the AfD and the SPD have spoken out against an increase in fees. The Greens are of the opinion that the increase is not serious, it would only mean 6.96 euros per year.

The state’s Prime Minister, Dietmar Woidke (SPD), noted – probably based on the content – “I don’t see any acceptance of this among the people of Brandenburg.”

This is surprising because there is currently no public survey on this matter. How the other federal states, which are decisive on the issue, vote will remain to be seen in the future. The situation becomes unexpectedly exciting!
