Hannover Region

Political structure of the Hannover Region

Region President, Regional Assembly, committees – the political parts of the Hannover Region

The head of the Hannover Region administration is the Region President. He is also the public representative of the region. Every eight years the Region President is chosen by direct election. Mr Hauke Jagau of the Social Democratic Party has been Region President since 1 November 2006.

The Regional Assembly is the Hannover Region’s most important political committee. On behalf of the voters, 85 politicians – including the Region President – reach decisions that affect the future of the Hannover Region. The Regional Assembly is elected every five years. The next election is 2021.
Since the 1 November 2016 seven parties and two independent politicians are part of the assembly:
SPD (26 seats), CDU (24), Bündnis90/Die Grünen (12), AfD (9), FDP (5), Die Linke (4), DIE HANNOVERANER (2) and the group REGION (2).

The political decisions are prepared by committees.

The meetings of these committees and of the Regional Assembly are all open to the public.
