Federal elections must be repeated in 431 electoral districts in Berlin. The Bundestag decided so late in the evening. The reason is the glitches in the elections. Because the decision is likely to be challenged before the Constitutional Court, no date has yet been set.

Due to several incidents, last year’s federal elections are scheduled to be repeated in parts of Berlin. The Bundestag decided this late in the evening, on the recommendation of the Election Review Committee. In 431 electoral districts in Berlin, voters must cast their first and second votes again.

However, it is not clear when the partial repetition will occur – because it is likely that the parliamentary decision will continue to be appealed to the Federal Constitutional Court. Therefore, voting may continue until 2024.

State elections are likely to be repeated

Federal elections on September 26, 2021 were chaotic at many polling stations in Berlin. There were long queues and waiting times, as well as wrong or missing ballot papers, which is why some polling stations are temporarily closed. In many places, polling stations remained open even after 6 p.m. due to crowds and delays, although expectations and expectations were already circulating at that time.

At the same time as elections for the Bundestag, elections for the lower house were also taking place in Berlin. The state’s constitutional court wants to rule on the retrial on Wednesday. During the oral session, it became clear that the election of the Berlin State Parliament would be repeated in full.
