  Interior minister - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An interior minister is the member of a country's government typically responsible for policing, national security, and immigration matters.
Similarly, autonomous entities and dependent territories may also have interior ministers; an example is Hong Kong (a special administrative region of the People's Republic of China), which has a Secretary for Security.
The United States Secretary of the Interior is primary concerned with managing lands owned by the federal government, mainly the administration of natural resources such as parks and wildlife.

 Guardian Unlimited | The Guardian | German minister calls for ban on rightwing parties
The interior minister of Germany's most populous region, North Rhine-Westphalia, said that when the authorities there outlawed a far-right group, it only succeeded in driving it underground and making surveillance of its members more difficult.
Ministers accept that substantial immigration from outside the European Union is required, not just to bridge a technological skills gap, but to keep a balance between Germany's active and non-active sectors of the population and keep its creaking pensions system from ruin.
The problem is that Germany's far-right violence is overwhelmingly concentrated in the economically depressed east, which was under communist rule and, until the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989, had an uninterrupted experience of dictatorship stretching back to the foundation of the Third Reich.

KARACHI, Pakistan -- Germany dropped its request for the extradition of Ramzi Binalshibh on Sunday, opening the way for the suspected coordinator of the Sept. 11 attacks to be handed over to the United States after his arrest last week by U.S. and Pakistani intelligence.

Roland Koch, 46, who became prime minister of Hesse in 1999, told the regional court in Wiesbaden today that he was first informed of the accounts by Manfred Kanther, the former head of the Christian Democratic Union party's operations in Hesse, two days before the CDU admitted to the secret funds.
Kanther, Germany's former interior minister under ex- Chancellor Kohl, and two other defendants are facing as much as five years in prison for transferring 10.6 million euros ($14 million) to accounts in Switzerland and then via Liechtenstein back to Germany to fund campaigns between the end of 1983 and 1998.
Germany's Federal Constitutional Court in September ruled that the CDU has to repay 21 million euros in state aid because of the secret Swiss account.

A second candidate, current Defense Minister Peter Struck, 62, is generally seen as the most qualified man for the job, but he has battled poor health, which has caused his wife to plead for Struck to step down.
Apparently for good reason: "The foreign minister chair is surely the most stressful and physically strenuous job," Stuchtey said, adding that he nevertheless sees the outgoing defense minister of having the best chances of getting the prestigious brief.
Interior Minister Otto Schily also is a hot candidate, but whether he still has a viable future in politics could be doubted in light of his 73 years of age.
