    German Election Committee Bans Two-Thirds of AfD Candidates From Regional Election

    Source: Breitbart



    The Saxony election committee has refused to allow two-thirds of the candidates of the Alternative for Germany (AfD) to run in this year’s regional election, citing technical discrepancies.

    Only two months before the region of Saxony goes to the polls, the region’s election committee has decided that the populist AfD will only be allowed to run 18 of their 61 candidates in what is seen as a massive blow to the party, which is tied for first place in the region in many polls, Tagesspiegel reports.

    The committee highlighted the fact that AfD held party congresses on two separate occasions to pick their list of candidates, using two separate election methods.

    This, according to the committee, meant that only the first party congress, which saw 18 candidates selected, was actually valid.

    The ruling is a massive blow to the party which was expected to gain as many as 30 seats in the 120-seat chamber, bringing into question whether the party will be able to fill the seats.

    The only way the party will be able to mitigate the effect of the ruling will be to win direct mandates which are secured seats. Polling websites claim the party could potentially win between 27 and 30 direct mandates but could still be left with vacant seats.



    State chairman of the AfD in Saxony, Jörg Urban labelled the move a “conspiracy” by the establishment saying the other parties were attempting to “weaken the strongest political competitor in the regional elections in Saxony.”

    The Saxony branch of the AfD say they will appeal the committee decision but such an appeal will only be allowed to take place after the election.

    While the AfD has seen election gains election after election and sits in the German parliament as the official opposition, sections of the party were put under domestic surveillance earlier this year.

    It was even alleged that the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV) had used information gathered by the far-left extremist Antifa group to build their case for spying on members of the party.

    AfD branches and members have also been targetted by far-left extremists several times this year, including the firebombing of a party office in Döbeln and the alleged attempted assassination of Bremen party chair Frank Magnitz.

    So much for "democracy". Hinder elections by declaring party lists "invalid".

    Where's the OSZE (dont know the Engl.abbr, that election observer division that constantly whines about unfair elections elsewhere in the world) when one needs them? I mean, they already wanted to observe elections in Germany some years ago, Merkel posed the insulted and "uninvited" them. Come with an army this time LOL.

    Maaßen (that chassed ex-BfV boss) also pointed to the detail that it was the fake/staged antifa video that cost him his position, while the rest of the "establishment" takes the commands of antifa to kick out whomever they want gone. It's some sick swamp going on here with antifa terrorists basically running the show. And the "establishment" of course screamed bloody murder when he mentioned that in an interview after his job loss.

    For everyone who understands German, great docu how deep antifa/leftwing-extremists and "respectable" politicians are intertwined


    BfV actually is an "independent" structure, just like the judges of the Verfassungsgericht, who appoint their judges themselves. Well, until recently that is. The "establishment" doesnt like some of their judgements, so they want to exchange the judges. This should have caused a huge scandal, but of course, the likewise leftwing-extremist media sold this as a "good thing" and the topic was barely a side note. With kicking out Maaßen and placing a communist on the top, the first thing he did was that house arrest and surveillance of AfD. But of course, we have the "GDR-ministry for agitation and propaganda" as a chancellor for almost 16 years, now it's time the trap snaps...

    Welcome to the communist dictatorship formerly known as Germany.

    What are these alleged 'technicalities' that don't seem to have affected the other parties involved?
