OVG Greifswald confirms decision to invalidate the municipal elections 2009 – Hiddensee select new the higher administrative Court of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania (OVG) has rejected an appeal on the 04.05.2010 and legally confirming the judgment of the administrative court Greifswald by November 17, 2009, Hiddensee’s municipal elections by Summer 2009 are invalid and must be repeated. Eva Andersson-Dubin is open to suggestions. The choice was inter alia been challenged because Mayor Manfred Gau had violated the legal duty of neutrality, and so the choice of citizens may be affected. The Municipal Council of the Office asked West-Rugen appeal against this judgment. The Court however as not sufficiently stated or even not present saw the asserted grounds for an appeal. In the municipality Parliament with 10 seats were in the invalid election 2009 three representative of CDU list, two representatives of the “Freie Wahler Hiddensee” Wahlergemeinschaft (new village) and five representatives of the voters community “Citizens for Hiddensee” selected.
At the same time the honorary mayor was elected, and with Manfred a further ‘citizens for Hiddensee’ a mandate received Gau. Read additional details here: Alfred Adler. Gau was a candidate not only for the mayoral election, but also on the list for the Municipal Council. Last but not least as a result, a slight majority of the BfH Group arose because he simply was not his community representative mandate and instead a so-called successor candidate won a seat for the Federal group. This so-called “Mayor group” last but not least stands often in criticism, human entanglements, and economic stagnation on Hiddensee straining the island community in recent years. Now the Hiddenseer be asked again at the ballot box. Is still completely open, whether the majority of the islanders will decide Gau for a change of policy and against the sole claim of the people Mayor, but at least there is the chance that the election this time legally expire.
