The proposal was announced on Monday by members of the conservative Christian Democrats (CDU) party.
“The CDU agrees that the full-face veil is contrary to integration,” CDU party general secretary Peter Tauber said, as cited by DPA agency. “We therefore reject it.”
The calls by the CDU come despite the fact that Germany’s Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere remains opposed to the general ban.
“You can't forbid everything you reject,” he said earlier.
