Green state executive committee: AfD ban procedure must be examined now!

At its closed meeting in Dessau-Roßlau yesterday, Saturday, the state executive committee of Alliance 90/The Greens Saxony-Anhalt passed a resolution dealing with the plans for deportation that have come to light in connection with a secret meeting of far-right forces in Potsdam, which was also attended by the AfD parliamentary group leader from Saxony-Anhalt, Ulrich Siegmund.

With this resolution, the state executive committee supports the SPD in its plan to remove Siegmund from his position as chairman of the Social Affairs Committee in the Saxony-Anhalt state parliament. Furthermore, the state executive committee supports the “intensive examination of a ban procedure for the AfD by the responsible constitutional bodies”.

An AfD ban procedure must now be examined by the relevant constitutional institutions!

Dennis Helmich, state chairman

Dennis Helmich, state chairman of Alliance 90/The Greens Saxony-Anhalt, explains: “Pluralism of opinions is part of the DNA of a democratic society. However, the AfD has become a serious threat to democratic Germany. Its political work consists of weakening democracy by disparaging democratic processes and constantly attacking civil society. The AfD’s goal is to abolish liberal democracy. We will not stand by in silence! An AfD ban procedure must now be examined by the responsible constitutional institutions!”

Helmich concludes: “We are also open to discussions with all democratic parties on how we can now strengthen the democratic society in Saxony-Anhalt.”
