Bavarian Prime Minister Horst Seehofer was the first politician who proposed the number of 200.000 refugees per year as a cap for Germany. A new poll from early January by the “policy matters” Institute, which has been presented today, shows that 71 per cent of the population of the Free State of Bavaria agrees with him. Not only members of his CSU party, which commissioned the poll, but also members of the SPD and other parties in Bavaria. Only members and voters of the Green party are mostly opposed to the setting of a cap.
64 per cent of the polled think that asylum-seekers should make efforts to accept the German way of life in order to integrate better into society.
In other refugee, Bavaria and Munich regarding news, the Mayor of Munich, Dieter Reiter (SPD) has been heavily criticised by members of the Munich CSU for mentioning them during a speech about a plan to better integrate refugees into society. He said that the CSU is assisting in making right-wing opinions about the refugee crisis more acceptable among the people of Bavaria.
