D.he chairman of the conference of interior ministers, Georg Maier, has brought up a ban on the AfD in the event that it becomes radicalized.
With reference to the disturbances in the Bundestag by guests of AfD MPs, the social democratic Thuringian head of department said: “It is becoming increasingly obvious how much the AfD functions as the parliamentary arm of right-wing extremists and tries to undermine parliamentary democracy from within. The entire party is developing in a right-wing extremist direction. ”
He told the editorial network Germany on Saturday: “The task of the protection of the constitution is to collect material that will stand up in court in order to find suitable means for dealing with the AfD. Prohibition proceedings at the Federal Constitutional Court are the very last resort. But even that can no longer be ruled out if the party continues to radicalize. “
Above all, however, it remains a political and social task to deal with this anti-democratic force and to push it back, explained Maier.
During the vote on the Infection Protection Act, visitors to the Reichstag building came through AfD MPs, who then molested, filmed and sometimes insulted advocates of the law among politicians.
