After a relatively quiet general meeting in November, things are likely to get hectic again at Hertha BSC next Sunday. A motion to vote out is explosive.
Hertha BSC is facing a very emotional general meeting next Sunday.
In addition to the sporting and economic problems, a motion by a Hertha member to vote out the entire Executive Committee and the Chairman of the Supervisory Board is further explosive.
Hertha confirmed receipt of the application on Tuesday. First BILD and the TV broadcaster Sky had reported about it. 75 percent of those present at the general meeting must vote to vote out.
The member’s 30-page submission contains six applications, four of which the association rejected as “inadmissible”. However, the first two applications were approved.
On the one hand, the Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Klaus Brüggemann, is to be dismissed. Brüggemann had to submit an application to be voted out at the last general meeting in November last year.
In the second approved application, the right to exercise the office of the entire executive committee around club boss Kay Bernstein is questioned.
The by-elections held last June are effective but incomplete because they were prematurely broken off after the Presidium had reached seven members. Hertha, meanwhile, spoke of “legally incorrect justification” and is aiming for a change in the statutes. While in the old version the Executive Committee consisted of nine members, in future there should be at least seven and a maximum of nine.
The team can already create a better mood in advance: Hertha will play in Cologne on Friday evening and could draw great hopes in the fight against relegation with a win.
