(GermanPolicy.com) – The candidate for Chancellor of the Union parties, Armin Laschet (CDU) wants to move towards a “planning acceleration package” after a possible election victory. This should ensure growth and competitiveness. It is crucial to be able to “plan, approve and implement” faster. Legal actions should only be possible for those involved in the administrative procedure. “Fast-track approval procedures” are therefore provided for power lines, wind turbines and railway lines, among other things. In addition, Laschet called for the improvement of living conditions in rural areas, for example via fast internet.
