Berlin/Erfurt – Unusual distribution of roles in parliament: The opposition has pushed through a tax cut in the German state of Thuringia against the red-red-green minority coalition – with the help of the AfD. On Thursday, the CDU parliamentary group was only able to reduce the property transfer tax due on property purchases from 6.5 to 5.0 percent because, in addition to the FDP, the party in Thuringia, which the Office for the Protection of the Constitution has classified as proven right-wing extremist, also agreed. This is causing discussion nationwide.
