Spanish judiciary allows election of puigdemont only in his presence

The spanish judiciary has given the separatists in catalonia a steaming blow and made the election of their candidate carles puigdemont as regional president virtually impossible.

The 55-year-old must return from exile in belgium and be present in person for the vote in the parliament in barcelona, the constitutional court in madrid ruled on saturday evening after more than seven hours of deliberations. Since puigdemont was immediately arrested on his return to spain, the court "closed all doors" to him, as the newspaper "el mundo" wrote on sunday.

Why many gereuth residents don’t want a subway stop

The sud suburban railroad stop was intended as a kind of lure to make the ground-level extension of the railroad line palatable to the people of bamberg. But in the very place where residents stand to benefit the most from the new transit service, the project is meeting with resistance – in gereuth. The reason for the protest, which is now articulated in a huge and hardly visible burgers club banner, is a rough, well ingrown and heavily frequented playground at kornstrabe. When the suburban train stop is built, a concrete ramp will lead to the platform where the playground is particularly overgrown. The project has met with opposition from many, especially from norbert tscherner (BBB), head of the burgerverein. He suggests a variant that has been realized south of the forchheim strabe. There, the rail stop could provide good connections to the brose arena and the possible training center of the chamber of handicrafts. But in the city administration one holds this idea for absurdly. The city council and the relevant authorities had already made up their minds.

This did not stop the residents from the neighboring distelweg from climbing onto the barricades. They consider the train stop dispensable. "We have a bus."

Criticism of the condition of the bad kissingen ring road

Heinz steidle is a mobile senior: the 78-year-old drives a car almost every day, among other things to take his wife lieselotte to the doctor or for treatment. "My wife suffers from disc problems", tells the former head of the district court in bad kissingen. He is all the more annoyed by the potholes and depressions along the city ring road: for his wife, "driving along these stretches is always painful". In addition to damage to vehicles, steidle also thinks of others: "the lamb load on residents is unacceptable, especially on the westring." That’s why he wrote to the state building department. But this points – at least in part – to the city. A back and forth.

"The state of construction of the federal and state highways in the area of the city of bad kissingen has been catastrophically bad for years", wrote steidle to schweinfurt. He specifically criticizes the condition of the westring from the town sign to the garitz intersection, the sunken caps on the ostring, the road surface at the erhardstrabe and kapellenstrabe junctions, and the bike lanes along the east and north rings. In steidle’s opinion, the building authority cannot simply refer to upcoming tree removals at the garitz intersection, for example, or the sewer construction in erhardstrabe: "that cannot justify the failure to repair this serious damage, which also affects traffic safety."
