German parliament adopts controversial law on Nord Stream 2

The Bundestag has finally adopted the bill that implements the EU gas directive into german law.
This bill was contentious because it grants an exception to the stipulation of the EU gas directive according to which gas supplier and pipeline operator have to be separated which is not the case of Nord Stream 2, since both supplier and pipeline operator are under control of russian state owned enterprise Gazprom.

After a failed attempt to vote the bill last week, the parliament finally gathered the neccessary quorum.
Only the Green party (Die GrĂ¼nen) opposed the vote.
