Presidium of the Bundestag

The Presidium of the Bundestag is responsible for the routine administration of the Bundestag, including its clerical and research activities. The presidium consists of the President of the Bundestag and a variable number of Vice Presidents, currently six.[1][2]

The president is elected by all members of the Bundestag during its first meeting; he almost always comes from the largest faction in the Bundestag (tradition has made this a sort of an unwritten law). His administration ends with the end of the legislature, but he can be re-elected, as long as he is re-elected to the Bundestag.[3]

In 1994, it was decided that every faction in the Bundestag should be represented by a Vice President.

In the first session of the 19th Bundestag on 24 October 2017, the AfD-group nominated Albrecht Glaser as Vice President. Glaser failed to secure a majority on the first and second ballot and a plurality on the third ballot. The AfD-group nominated other candidates in following sessions, of which no one was able to secure the necessary majority or plurality. Thus, the AfD's presidium-seat has remained vacant since. The SPD's Vice President Thomas Oppermann died on 25 October 2020, Dagmar Ziegler was elected to the vacant post.
