AfD to campaign on German EU exit in May elections

The far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) adopted a measure into its draft manifesto on Sunday calling for Germany’s exit from the European Union (EU) if their demands are not met. One of the measures set to be adopted includes a dissolution of the European parliament, the very body the party is campaigning to enter in May.

“We see nation-states as having the exclusive competence to make laws,” the text read, slamming the “751 privileged members” of the current European legislature.

If the bloc does not meet the AfD’s demands within “an appropriate timeframe,” then Germany must leave, delegates said atthe party’s congress in the eastern state of Saxony.
