50th Anniversary of the Vote of No Confidence Against Chancellor Willy Brandt (April 27, 1972)
On April 27, 1972, the very first no-confidence vote against a chancellor of the Federal Republic took place. It was on this day, that the CDU/CSU parliamentary group submitted a motion to this effect against Willy Brandt.
The cause for this drastic action was the Social Democratic Chancellor’s Ostpolitik, which in the eyes of the opposition constituted a "sell-out of German interests" and endangered the "great cause of restoring the unity of the German people."
After several SPD and FDP members of parliament had defected to the CDU, CDU chairman Rainer Barzel was certain he had a majority in the Bundestag and was thus capable of toppling the government. On the day of the decision, the stands in the plenary hall were filled to capacity. Millions of citizens followed the debate and vote on radio and television. Throughout the country, there were spontaneous protests and strikes against the CDU-led vote.
The results of the vote count turned out to be just as close as they were surprising. The dismayed challenger was two votes short of victory. As a result, speculation about bribery quickly made the rounds.
After the peaceful revolution it came to light that the East German Ministry of State Security had paid off two Christian Democrat deputies with DM 50,000 each for their abstention from voting. It was in the GDR's interest that Willy Brandt remained chancellor and that the treaties with the East that he had initiated were ratified as planned.
Because the social-liberal coalition had lost its already thin majority in the course of the legislative period - not least due to the party switchers in the run-up to the vote of no confidence - early elections were held in September following Brandt's vote of confidence. With a record voter turnout of over 91%, the Social Democrats became the strongest parliamentary group for the first time. In December, Willy Brandt was re-elected as Chancellor.
