What is the mathematical line of government?

ySomeone commented on sports: Böhm 2.0. The expulsion of the woman, who stood on the government side between sports organizations and the €300m in first-class sports funding, is reminiscent of the sports-politics scandal four years ago: sports officials are tired of the ministry’s scrutiny of them. Plans, their spending and, above all, their effectiveness to allow.

Minister Seehofer, as soon as he took office, fulfilled their desire to replace civil servant Gerhard Bohm, who felt compelled to take on the responsibility of handling taxpayers’ money. Now his successor must go. Sports officials also pushed for the firing of Piate Le Mans.

Politics looks erratic. Interior Minister Nancy Visser, when she visited the Sports Committee four weeks ago, praised the efficiency and firmness of the head of the department. Now all of a sudden the trust is destroyed. Minister of State Julian Seifert, the ministerial director, retired without warning on Wednesday. While this is legitimate; Political officials are expected to agree with the government line.

But what line of sports policy does the government actually follow? It is not identifiable beyond the advertisements in the coalition agreement. The Budget Committee approved 25 million euros for the promised revival of clubs and mass sports after the pandemic – without any concept available. So the funds are frozen for now.

The House of Le Mans should be a scapegoat for this omission. Nearly half a year into office, most of the Schultz government’s sports policy goals have proven more wishful thinking than concrete projects. There is talk of a golden scheme for sports facilities, about a kind of sports LLC of the first class for the independent allocation of funds, which seems more realistic, about a center for safe sports. The big hit should be an athletic development plan.

It is entirely possible that the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB) has now presented a blueprint for its goal of understanding and using sport as a social policy in the cornerstones of a radically new federal sports policy. This means that in the future, not only the Ministry of Interior, but in particular the Departments of Family and Health, will work on the use and promotion of sports in areas such as democracy building, integration and participation as well as prevention and treatment – not under the direction of a department head in the Ministry of the Interior, but under the direction of Minister of State for Sports in the Chancellery.

It remains to be seen whether these ideas will be understood as an assumption or embraced by the federal and state governments as an aid. For now, it is important not to forget the top athletes of the Ministry of the Interior.
