The 2G rule has been in effect in Saxony for almost a week. Now the country’s AfD parliamentary group wants to complain against it. The measure is contrary to the right to physical integrity.
The AfD parliamentary group in the Saxon state parliament is taking legal action against the new Corona Protection Ordinance. The MPs want the Constitutional Court to review the 2G rule, as the parliamentary group announced on Sunday.
On Monday (November 7th), Saxony was the first federal state to introduce the 2G rule in large parts of public life. This means that only vaccinated and convalescent people are allowed to go to restaurants, pubs or discos, a negative test is no longer enough.
“The 2G rule amounts to compulsory vaccination. This compulsory vaccination is unconstitutional,” said parliamentary group leader Jörg Urban. Since the corona vaccines have only had conditional approval so far, the 2G rule collides with the right to physical integrity.
In addition, the regulation is an unacceptable unequal treatment of citizens and represents a discrimination against the unvaccinated. “Prime Minister Michael Kretschmer (CDU) is dividing our society. Our lawsuit should help to repair this crack,” stressed Urban.
