Example text

39 Although the BVP remained the largest party in the Landtag, its plurality was narrower than at any time hitherto. Despite a repetition of the 'back-door' approach to constitutional modification in July 1924, and once again in June 1926 - during which latter attempt the motion to amend the state constitution failed by only one vote - the high-water-mark of the BVP in this regard seems by this time to have passed. 40 The party could not, of course, renounce its desire for change without risking the loss of its base of conservative support.

Finally, as noted above, the BVP assumed control of the government in March 1920. The SPD, however, remained a force to be reckoned with even after that date. The consequent need of the BVP to ally itself with the Peasants' League, the DDP, and the DNVP in order to overcome SPD resistance to its plans led to several difficulties. Already mentioned was the effort in 1920-1922 to calm the fears of the party's coalition partners over the fate of the Reich through the refinement of the 'Bamberger Programme'.

In the programme as finally adopted in 1922, this demand is divided into two separate sections. The first lays out, in quite general terms, those points which would promote increased, long-term participation by the Lander but which would have to await constitutional amendment. The second section concerns those demands which the BVP felt would have to be granted immediately: once again, Land administration of post, rail, and tax systems through local offices staffed by Land natives; the delegation to the Lander of all powers not specifically granted to the Reich', and the discretionary use of the armed forces by the Lander to maintain order.
