What is local politics all about?

Die Stadt München

Local politics regulates things that affect people directly at the local level. This includes the construction of housing, as well as climate-friendly traffic due to new underground lines or the expansion of city libraries. So in the political jungle, local politics is the tree in front of your window. This forms the basis of the politics. Just as municipalities - communities, towns and districts - form the foundation of the Federal Republic of Germany.

Как я могу принять участие?

Citizen participation

 

You would like to make the rules yourself? In city politics everyone can get involved. And voting is my most direct way to seize that opportunity. Besides, there are other ways to take my concerns to Town Hall. For example, at Town Hall meetings, through public petitions or a referendum. In addition, all citizens are free to join a party or to stand for election as a city councillor or mayor. So, all that remains is the question: Join in on a daily basis or set the right course every six years?
