CWN Editor's Note: At a press conference on April 11, Bishop Franz-Josef Overbeck of Essen spoke of the “unwritten requirements of democracy in the form of a democratic ethical order. This essentially includes the respect for others in each case, the recognition of democratic rules of play, a willingness to compromise and the acceptance of majority decisions” (German-language link).
