Runoff election: Right-wing extremist in Thuringia fails in district election

Runoff election: Right-wing extremist in Thuringia fails in district election

His performance in the local elections two weeks ago had sparked outrage: Now the right-wing extremist Tommy Frenck has suffered defeat in the runoff election for the district administrator’s office.

The right-wing extremist Tommy Frenck lost the runoff election for the district administrator’s office in the southern Thuringian district of Hildburghausen. After all 127 voting districts had been counted, Frenck received 30.5 percent of the votes, while the Free Voters candidate Sven Gregor received 69.5 percent. This meant that Gregor won a clear victory – but at the same time, almost one in three voters in the Hildburghausen district voted for the right-wing extremist Frenck in the runoff election.

Frenck became known nationwide because he organized a series of large neo-Nazi concerts, which also attracted right-wing extremists from other European countries. According to the 2022 report by the Office for the Protection of the Constitution, his voting group “Alliance for the Future of Hildburghausen” developed into the leading neo-Nazi group in the district.

According to expert assessments, Frenck, who is well-known to the state’s Office for the Protection of the Constitution, should not have been allowed to stand in the election. However, the district’s election committee decided otherwise.

In the first round of the district election two weeks ago, he made it to the runoff and overtook a CDU candidate. There was no AfD candidate.
