Turnow-Preilack: Brandenburg AfD group Deputy warns of party decay

Brandenburg AfD parliamentary group Deputy chief Steffen Kubitzki has called on his party to hold Together, and before a possible decay warned. "Our party in the state of Brandenburg is currently not a good figure," said the Chairman of the AfD Spree-Neisse on Sunday. AfD-elected officials stepping out of factions in local parliaments, the groups dissolved, in some of the circle associations rule dispute. The causes he sees, especially in the classification of the AfD in Brandenburg as a suspected case by the protection of the Constitution, a predominance of the now defunct right-wing nationalist "wing", as well as in the dispute over the cancellation of the party's membership by country and group chief Andreas Kalbitz.

The Deputy AfD parliamentary group boss shows up in the year prior to the election concerned. The cooperation of the district Association of Spree-Neiße, the groups in the district and in the cities of Forst, Guben and Spremberg, despite the discrepancy in the case of some topics, while always constructive, said the County chief. "Nevertheless, we must take care that the occasional disintegration not avalanche trigger, leading to a real decay, which of the upcoming General election next year would be the same in the light of a Super-GAU."

The AfD Federal Executive had thrown Kalbitz in may from the party, and this is justified, the party he had not given ticket to former membership in the now-banned right-wing "homeland-faithful German youth" (HDJ), and in the case of the Republicans. Kalbitz back has a HDJ-membership. He went against the decision legally. The Berlin regional court declared the decision of the party leadership to be inadmissible, a decision by the AfD Federal arbitration court in the main proceedings is still pending. The kicking had triggered a controversy in the party.

Also on the local level there are problems: In the town meeting in Cottbus prescribed, the AfD group since last year-as you strongest group - from 11 to 5 members more than halved. In Neuruppin, the two members of the AfD group broke up.

Kubitzki called on the state Board to "the tendencies" and the conversation with the appropriate district organizations, and political groups. "But above all, I ask anyone who plays with the idea of the group and or party, to withdraw, to think carefully about whether this step is really necessary (...) or whether it is not worth to fight for a better party." Those who have something to criticize the party, had this meeting on internal Committees and party days to be clear.

In may, Kubitzki had warned of a crack, if Kalbitz remains a confirmation of the player being kicked out from the party at the top. The group chose Kalbitz in June, according to the decision of the Berlin district court with 16 Yes votes, five no votes and one abstention, again formally, to your chair.
