Bundestag elections in Germany are coming up
The Bundestag elections will be held in Germany on the 24th of September 2017. The German party for the animals, Partei Mensch Umwelt Tierschutz (for short: Tierschutzpartei) is also participating in the elections. The party has representatives in the municipal councils of a few German municipalities. This year they also want to gain seats in the Bundestag and they are working hard to collect enough declarations of support in the German federal states to be allowed to participate.
Election materials of the Tierschutzpartei
The Tierschutzpartei must, just like all other parties that are not represented in the Bundestag yet, obtain 2,000 signatures (declarations of support) in the German federal states to be able to participate in the elections. The deadline is 17 July and the party is calling on all Germans to give their signature. The instructions can be read here.
