DCDU member of the Bundestag Marco Wanderwitz needs to introduce a movement to ban the AfD in parliament and says he has discovered sufficient supporters to take action. To put such a movement on the agenda, 5 % of the MPs are wanted, i.e. 37. “We have them together,” the previous Federal Government Commissioner for Eastern Europe instructed the newspaper “taz”. A easy majority is required for a choice. However, a celebration can solely be banned by the Federal Constitutional Court. The Bundestag, the Federal Government and/or the Bundesrat can apply for this.

The written causes for the judgment of the Higher Administrative Court in Münster, which confirmed the classification of the AfD as a suspected right-wing extremist case by the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution in May, mentioned Wanderwitz from Saxony. “When the reasons for the judgment are available, we will take a close look at it and then submit our application for a ban updated and well-founded.”

The democratic constitutional state should not merely permit a celebration “that spreads hatred and incitement around the clock and wants to abolish this constitutional state to continue until it is too late”.

Since the founding of the Federal Republic, solely two functions to ban political events have been profitable in Karlsruhe: in 1952 in opposition to the neo-Nazi Socialist Reich Party (SRP) and in 1956 in opposition to the Communist Party of Germany (KPD).
