The Brandenburg AfD moves with the party and the Faction leader Andreas Kalbitz as the top candidate in the state election campaign. After several hours of counting the marathon at the party Congress in rank village was opened on Friday evening, was able to announce the result of the election on Monday morning at 7 o'clock. Kalbitz, one to the right wing of the AfD to the Thuringian AfD-Chef Björn Höcke, was elected with 319 Yes and 113 no votes with 43 abstentions, on the first place in the list of candidates.
According to polls, the party is at 20 to 23 percent, thus you could have chances to 20 to 23 members, which feed on the list to the Parliament. Currently, the AfD group is one in the Brandenburg state Parliament - after two retirements due to the shift to the right - of nine members.
Remarkable. The AfD wants to make the Protest of the Association "future of home", especially in Cottbus advantage of it. Christoph Berndt, head of the Association, was elected to second place on the list. He was with 314 votes, only just behind Kalbitz. In the meantime, it was even possible that he will be unplanned leading candidate. The demonstrations of the Association had experienced a year ago, a massive inlet, after refugees were struck by the violence in Cottbus. In the demonstrations, in which the inlet is again the same, does not tolerate the club's right-wing extremists and neo-Nazis. Berndt said: "We are not allowed to leave the parliaments of Germany abschaf." The natural Alliance partner of the AfD, the Patriotic citizens movement has to be. This successful Brandenburg model of cooperation should be expanded.
Kalbitz was after his election as the target that the AfD in the Landtag election on may 1. In September, the strongest political force in the state of Brandenburg wool. "I suppose the order of the top candidate, full of desire to fight," said Kalbitz. "The old parties have been discredited." On the country list of the AfD he was particularly proud of. "It is not – as is the case with the established parties – from cadres that were just long enough brave party of soldiers, and then with a mandate to be rewarded. Our country list is a mirror of the Brandenburg population," said Kalbitz. "We can take back our country – the AfD in Brandenburg is ready to be closed, as always."
According to his choice, Kalbitz said to the time-consuming election process at the Congress: "democracy hurts sometimes." But the AfD decisions of the other parties. "We can rely on our base. The decisions are smart and solid." The AfD could draw with a team in the election campaign, which is mixed, and the diversity of the country reflected, had it not washed up professional functionaries, as in other parties. "I am looking forward to the election campaign and even more to deliver after the election."
Despite the Kalbitz acclaimed Unity of the party, showed up in the list of sites also, such as lack of unity in the AfD. In fact, a list of 40 candidates was planned, there were 87 applicants. At the end of a list of 28 candidates was decided. Only up to 28th place, the applicants had received more Yes than no votes. From the list of 13 candidates received less than 50 percent of the vote. The abstentions had not been counted, as is otherwise the case with other parties also customary, would not have become Kalbitz but Christoph Berndt the top candidate. Then Berndt had a result of 79 percent and Kalbitz of 74 percent.
Of the nine members of Parliament had applied for a place on the list. The two deputies, Rainer van Raemdonck , and Sven Schröder, both of which were struck through in-kind work, made it to the list. On court three, Daniel Freiherr von Lützow was elected, he is Vice-national Chairman of the party, AfD local chief in Blankenfelde-Mahlow and party strategist for local base work. In fourth place Birgit Bessin landed, she is Deputy head of the AfD parliamentary group and appears regularly in the demonstrations of the "future home" in Cottbus.
In fifth place, Steffen landed Neisse Kubitzki from the banks of the Spree. As a man from the power plant industry, he is well connected in the Spree-Neiße good and rooted. In the case of the district administrator choice in Spree-Neisse, he came in the run-off election against the incumbent of the CDU on 40 per cent. Place six of the AfD country Director Lars Hünich, which is in the parliamentary group speaker for events came from. The AfD should be like now in the polls for the state election at 20 percent of the land, are likely to get the AfD 20 mandates.
