A Member of the Bundestag may be suspended for up to

(2) The Member concerned shall immediately leave the Chamber.
If he or she refuses to obey the order, the President

Putting questions
The President shall put questions in such a manner that
they can be answered with either „Yes“ or „No“. As a rule,

raised to the form proposed, the Bundestag shall decide.

committee meetings

The right of a committee to demand the presence of a member
of the Federal Government shall also apply if the person
concerned is to be heard at a public meeting. The decision
on a motion to that effect shall be taken at a meeting
that is not open to the public.
