For many of those Involved, is what has happened on the AfD-party conference two years ago in Hanover, still a Trauma: Alexander Gauland suggested a candidate for the presidency, in addition to Jörg Meuthen. Then virtually unknown, and later as extremist excluded, Doris von Sayn-Wittgenstein delivered a fiery speech, and was elected by a hair, instead of Gaulands favorite to the party boss. In order to prevent a debacle, went to the "Old" finally, in between and let yourself choose.
In the process, Gauland had actually never Chairman. To be head of the parliamentary faction, had him quite enough. The 78-Year-old has led in his long political life, 40 years in the CDU, always prefer from the Background. So he drew the end of the 80s, in the state of Hesse state Chancellery of Prime Minister Hans wall man, so he had kept it since the creation of the my AfD 2013. The spokesman of the new party liked Bernd Lucke, Frauke Petry and Jörg Meuthen hot, your real leader, Alexander Gauland was always. Now that he wants to get rid of the Distress, accepted the office again, he realizes that it is not so easy.
The Nazi period, called Gauland, a "bird-shit in over 1000 successful years of German history".
Gauland, in Karl-Marx-city and grew up in Bonn and Frankfurt am Main to politicians, and after the turn as a publisher in the East returned, for the Alternative for Germany is irreplaceable. Ideologically, it forms a hinge between so-called moderate, national-conservative and revolutionary-minded radical right-wing forces in the party. With his tweed jackets, the green dogs-tie and corduroy trousers, he maintains the style of an English Country gentleman, exudes those harmless citizens in the rule of law, which required the AfD to recommend itself as a "new people's party".
Gauland holds together the "fermented heap", as he calls his AfD, half apologetically, half-admiringly, almost alone. He is the Only one whose authority is respected by everybody. Some call him "the crocodile": "no-one except him has the bite, the political weight and experience to spring, beat off, demarcate, and not reversed, if the direction of fit," wrote "time".
the Gauland has radicalized, his Biedermann-occurs in Spite of, in the last few years. The Nazi period he called a "bird's shit in over 1000 successful years of German history". The Turkish-German integration Minister he wanted to dispose of due to allegedly defective germandom "in Anatolia". Political scientists qualify parts of his Talk for longer than a "revisionist" and "racist". In the latest report of the constitutional protection to be "völkisch-nationalist society pictures" attests.
The Radicals supported
Gauland has supported the right-wing radicals in the AfD always, and in particular the "wings" of Björn Höcke. After its Triumph in the election in Thuringia at the end of October, he took Höcke in front of the accusation that he may lead the party to the right, he said, it was "in the middle of the party" (read here, how it came to be).
Andreas Kalbitz, the Brandenburg, with pure neo-Nazi past, calling it "so-bourgeois like myself". From Gaulands point of view, the radical forces are indispensable, especially in the East, because they are the party supplying the necessary revolutionary energy. At the same time, AfD is supposed to work not how the neo-Nazi party NPD, whose powers she has absorbed for a long time.
Pulls back Gauland of the party leadership, is the Balance on the game. According to your choice Höcke and Kalbitz urge follow to have more influence in the presidency and the Executive Board: One of the two Chefs had come from the East.
With tweed jackets and corduroy trousers Gauland maintains the style of the harmless citizens of the rule of law, the AfD is required.
As Gauland know that neither Höcke still Kalbitz are in this role of "employable", he has chosen the 44-year-old Tino Chrupalla as the successor. The is, in fact, born in Saxony, as a master painter popular and has made the group a name by the time he brought the finances back into balance. Chrupalla is not part of the "wings", is estimated from this but.
the party Congress at the weekend, so, like Gauland wants it, is Chrupalla to the Co-chief elected in addition to Meuthen and he himself is the honorary Chairman. But already now it is clear that it could go to Braunschweig at the end of a similar chaotic as two years ago in Hanover.
The Berlin-based firebrands, Gottfried Curio, has announced his candidacy. The 59-year-old physicist and musician, is an excellent speaker and is therefore considered a "Youtube Star" of the radical base. He speaks of the "birth Jihad" and "fair, clean campaign", women with the headscarf who calls it a "black bag" speaks.
Complex power struggle
Although Curio is considered as a "lone Wolf" and all the talents of a mediating party makes bosses miss, keeps Gauland it is possible, though not very likely that this could displace in Braunschweig, Germany, as its less well-known candidates Chrupalla. What is the "Old man" then? He goes in between? The situation is tricky, because Meuthen, the second boss, by no means is securely seated in the saddle. Since the 58-year-old Baden-Württemberger Economist sharply against the Radicals delineated has, considered the "wing" him as an enemy.
you Ask Gauland self, what's going to happen in Braunschweig, he shrugs his shoulders: "The white man in our anarchic party never." His health is not in a is considered to be the best of the "Old" nod at meetings sometimes, whispers you. He would be relieved if it were possible for him, the Power is controlled to deliver? He smiles ironically and says: "That's not my Problem."
