Committees are parliamentary bodies whose main duty is to prepare for the rulings of the Landtag.
Their orders are issued by the Landtag. They may address issues on their own initiative, however, and submit draft bills, motions and motions for a resolution to the Landtag. The number of members on a committee is decided on the recommendation of the Presiding Committee of the Landtag. The Presiding Committee comes to an agreement on the committee chairmen and deputy chairmen allocated to a parliamentary group. The committee chairman and his deputy are then elected by the committee after being nominated by the eligible parliamentary groups. The committee members and deputies are appointed by the parliamentary groups.
Every Parliamentary Group has the right to be represented on every Committee by at least one member. An independent member has the right to work on a committee with a right to vote (Article 70 Land Constitution).
With the exception of the Petitions Committee, the Committees in the Landtag Brandenburg meet in public.
