European elections: Central Council of Jews concerned about AfD result

“It should give all democratic forces something to think about,” warns Josef Schuster in view of the strong results of populist parties in the European elections.

The Central Council of Jews is concerned about the strong results of populist parties in the European elections in Germany.

“It should give all democratic forces pause for thought that right-wing and left-wing populist parties received a fifth of the votes in the European Parliament elections in Germany,” said Central Council President Josef Schuster. This is not just a protest. “The fact that the AfD in particular, with its clear references to right-wing extremist ideology and its top candidates’ connections to dictatorial regimes, was able to achieve such a result, worries me greatly.”

In the European elections, the AfD came second nationwide with 15.9 percent. Sahra Wagenknecht’s new coalition also received 6.2 percent of the vote.
