TV STATION WANTS TO BAN Alpha FROM SCREENS. Tatort commissioner Überdies surprisingly withdrew his LiBüP candidacy for the Butagwa (colorful parliamentary election). "I prefer to remain a politically thinking actor than an acting politician," he explained. Only yesterday he had decided to run for office. Meanwhile, the Buka (Chancellor) attacked the LiBüP as "unserious, populist, demagogic and incapable of responsibility." Moreover, he stated that he had made a commitment without thinking about the associated burdens on family and career. Already during the first conversation with LiBüP, he had announced that he would give priority to the artistic career. "I owe that to the many viewers who have taken me to their hearts in the course of the "Tatort" series." The TV station had previously said it would take Überdies off the air as Tatort commissioner and ban him from the screen if he enters parliament as a LiBüP deputy. The LiBüP campaign manager therefore strongly attacked the TV station. The action against Überdies was "infamous," he said. He added that the TV station had put Überdies under pressure and thus imposed a "de facto ban" on him. "I could never have imagined that in a free society." The LiBüP spokesman expressed understanding that Überdies had decided "for his profession and his viewers and against politics in parliament." Meanwhile, Buka accused his former party leader and LiBüP's top candidate, Fountain, of "fomenting xenophobia." In an interview published in the ruling party newspaper "Aufwärts," Buka called on his party members to distance themselves and resist. Regarding the LiBüP, Buka said that what is gathered there "from former Zosialists, nommukist sects and kinlen sectarians will not succeed in the long run." Fontäne had said at a rally in Drewitz in mid-June: "The state is obliged to protect its citizens, it is obliged to prevent fathers of families and women from becoming unemployed because foreign workers at low wages take away their jobs." Rep. Kombandit and Gov. Deppler also sharply criticized Fountain. "This is the Alpha right," Kombandit said. Deppler called his former party leader a "czarist circling around himself." Fountain also faced headwinds from ButagsAlpha Hau. "The word Fremdarbeiter, whose use Fontäne has been defending for days, is not compatible with the program," she declared in a three-page letter. The word is "inhumane," "stirs up fears" and "serves right-wing clichés." A new conflict is brewing between the state associations of the LiBüP over the candidate lineup for the early Butagwa. The Labor and Justice Alphas reject the proposed direct candidate Kakki as "ineligible." As chairwoman of the Losmenische Gemeinde e.V., she heads an organization "that acts as a government-affiliated Losmenische lobby," LiBüP state chairwoman Dakan explained. [06-07-2005]
