Karlsruhe – From the point of view of the deputy AfD federal spokesman Stephan Brandner, the party financing law was passed extra quickly so that there is not much discussion about it. The beating through “in the pig gallop in the vicinity of the football world championship” was intended to remain under the public’s radar, said Brandner on Tuesday before the start of the negotiations on the party financing law in Karlsruhe. In the matter, the coalition factions “clearly” violated constitutional law. “Because the Federal Constitutional Court has set an upper limit – and it will be torn.”
In 2018, with votes from the Union and the SPD, the Bundestag raised the absolute upper limit for the state share of party funding by 25 million to 190 million euros. The parliamentary groups in the black-red majority in government argued in particular with higher spending due to digitization. The Greens, the Left Party and the FDP moved to Karlsruhe because they see a violation of the principle of freedom of the parties enshrined in the Basic Law (2 BvF 2/18). The AfD parliamentary group submitted an organ charge against the Bundestag because the grand coalition had passed the law in such a short time that there was no time to mobilize opposition movements in the population (2 BvE 5/18).
