In the European election campaign, the AfD’s enfant terrible Krah ultimately had to hold back. However, the MEP wants to get fully involved again in the upcoming state election campaign.

AfD MEP Maximilian Krah, who is also controversial internally, has announced that he will be heavily involved in the state election campaign of his Saxon party association.

“I have been asked by virtually every state parliament candidate. I will travel around the country,” he said in a video interview with the right-wing portal “Deutschland-Kurier,” which he posted on Platform X. He will “do everything to ensure that the state election result is even better than the European election result.”

Krah was the AfD’s top candidate in the European elections. However, after accusations of proximity to Russia and China and comments on the Nazi SS, the AfD leadership banned him from campaigning. Nevertheless, the right-wing ID group in the EU Parliament excluded the AfD from its ranks because of Krah and did not accept it back after the election. The new AfD group in the European Parliament excluded Krah from its ranks; he now sits in parliament for the party, but not as a member of the AfD group.

In the European elections, the AfD achieved 15.9 percent. Before the Saxon state elections in September, the party is currently polling at 30 to 32 percent, just ahead of the CDU.
