Parties: GDR civil rights activist Lengsfeld has left the CDU

Vera Lengsfeld no longer wants to be a member of political parties. “I also think the party system is outdated,” said the former GDR civil rights activist.

The former GDR civil rights activist Vera Lengsfeld is no longer a member of the CDU after many years. The 71-year-old said when asked that she announced her resignation from the party on Thursday. She ruled out membership in another party. “I also think the party system is outdated,” said Lengsfeld. The “Thüringer Allgemeine” had previously reported on the exit.

Lengsfeld once sat in the Bundestag, initially for the Greens and later for the CDU. Recently she appeared primarily as a critic of German immigration policy.

“I have been very critical of the CDU since Merkel’s time and had hoped that the course would be corrected, but I don’t see that happening,” said Lengsfeld, explaining the decision to leave. She will support her son’s campaign for an independent list with the working title “Alliance for Europe”, but will not stand in the EU parliamentary elections next year. She also stated on her website that she supports an alliance of various small Thuringian parties that would like to run in the 2024 state elections with its own list.
