20 minutes – The general attorney dismissed the baby from the parliament

The Grand Council of Basel arrived on Wednesday afternoon, according to media reports, on turbulent scenes. The reason for this was the baby of great advisor Leo Steinle (31). Council President Remo Gallacchi (CVP) had no understanding and sent a young mother outside the room. "We are parliamentarians here in the basement basically among us," he told "bz Basel".


Can a member of Parliament be allowed to take his child to the Council of the Council?

Steinle could not take part in the vote. For the Gallacchis intervention, many in the Council did not have any understanding. "Unconsciously! It's Discrimination!": Bz Basel reports a few rampant interests. After the incident, the session had to be interrupted temporarily.

"This is discriminatory"

Gallacchi finally returned to court after ordering Danielle Kaufmann (SP) for his decision and let Steinle back into the room. For the great adviser of Green Topics, it's not working. "They are elected by the people, but I have been denied the right to vote in the hall. It is discriminatory," Steinle told Basel. Young mothers should also have the opportunity to sit in parliament.

"The incident shows how far we are in terms of equality and reconciliation of work and family life," Steinle said at the request of 20 minutes. She had a great child: "It was an emergency situation."

The Council Office now clarifies its legal position

The legal position is now clarified by the Council of the Council. In fact, this case is not explicitly regulated. Steinle wants to wait and see what the Office of the Council means. If "common sense" does not come true, "of course, we will have to react with the attempt".

Later in the evening, the following statement was posted on the Twitter account of the Canton of Basel-Stadt: "The decision was awkward. The Council's office will make a pragmatic solution until the next big meeting of the council."
