Approval of the Emergency Acts (May 30, 1968)

On May 30, 1968 the German Bundestag passes the Emergency Acts, which are considered some of the most controversial bills in the history of the German Federal Republic. The „seventeenth law to amend the Grundgesetz“, or basic law, determines which powers appertain to the state in a crisis situation—such as natural disasters, uprisings or war—to ensure its capacity to act. Accordingly, an “emergency parliament” can take over the functions of the Bundestag (parliament) and the Bundesrat (federal council) and limitations may be placed on the privacy of correspondence, confidentiality of postal communication and telecommunication, that are part of the Grundgesetz. The federal government’s right to issue directives on the state level may be expanded, and the German armed forces and the Federal Border Guard may be deployed domestically.

The Bundestag struggled with numerous drafts and intense debates concerning the balancing of parliamentary rights and executive special powers for more than ten years. Proponents of the emergency acts argue that they are a necessary precautionary measure, that they supersede the Allied Forces’ existing privileges and thus provide the German Federal Republic with greater state sovereignty. Critics, on the other hand, are reminded of the Enabling Act of 1933 and fear that it jeopardizes democracy. Consequently, the plans to introduce the emergency constitution are accompanied by severe protests by the extra-parliamentary opposition. During the “protest march to Bonn” on May 11, tens of thousands of protesters voice their outrage, including the author Heinrich Böll.

Nevertheless the bill is accepted in the Bundestag with 384 to 100 votes and one abstention. It was the first great coalition of the German Federal Republic that finally made the required two-thirds majority possible. Once the Bundesrat approves the bill as well, the Emergency Acts becomes effective on June 28, 1968.
