Holger Pieters is also one of se AfD-boosters. Last week, Council MEP made his decision public with a very clear press release. "AfD-today extremely populist, with imperial citizens ' ideas, an NPD successor organisation", was title. Now Pieters can watch with quiet pleasure how Lower Saxon State Association of New Bundestag party manages its various crises.
The most up-to-date is investigation of prosecutor's Office against country chairman Armin-Paul Hampel. The ad is from April, Hampel, 60, a former ARD correspondent and future Bundestag member, should have diverted money from party.
Pieters is not surprised: "I once asked to use an auditor to control party's finances. That was mid 2016. That was not done. It would have been possible to clarify many things beforehand, so that party would not have fallen on its feet. " Armin-Paul Hampel thinks he is a wing party despot who fights more for himself than for political content.
One is now accustomed to AfD and its populists, who are constantly overthrown with or populists. But in Lower Saxony-AfD re is a circus before Landtag election on Sunday, even experienced political observer one. The police search of private apartment Hampel and Lüneburg AfD-State Office is provisional culmination of a series of episodes, All of which show: in this party, things are going wrong.
In June she made headlines, for example, because she wanted to refute impression with forged letters of confirmation that she had not yet given her country list for Bundestag election to country's electoral director. Before that, re were accusations that opponents of chairman Hampel would be bullied.
At top candidacy to Landtag election in August, a declared Hampel opponent was chosen: Dana Guth, 47, real estate and insurance broker from Herzberg am Harz. That was basically a sign that not only Hampel's line counts in country association. However, Dana Guth is considered to be as similar to Hampel.
A few days ago she was refore complimented by her group from Göttingen District day. "Mrs. Guth thinks she can take command of herself everywhere," said Bundestag group chief Frank Rathmann in Syker District newspaper. "Nothing more than a small party-internal intrigue," said Guth, who by urgent before Göttingen Administrative Court had ir reestablishment. The bad impression still remains.Hampel gives "political opponent" blame
Hampel again, at a meeting in August, former state treasurer and today's vice-treasurer of federal AfD, Bodo Suhren, had so fiercely addressed that this ad was refunded for libel. And now police are also approaching Armin-Paul Hampel.
The investigation procedure goes back to suspicion of fraud. Hampel, a professional camera equipment and accessories should have been sold and not delivered to Lower Saxon National Association of AfD. In addition, he should have double-billed an election commercial at Lower Saxony-AfD. Hampel denies that. So far, suspicion has not hardened. The investigations are underway.
On Tuesday evening, Hampel expressed himself in Hanover and repeated what he had already claimed before investigation: he suspects a political motive, Lower Saxony justice Minister Antje Niewisch-Lennartz (greens) used an instrument. "The judiciary is politically abused to eliminate unpopular party competition," said Hampel. The temporal correspondence between house search and upcoming Landtag election trap each.
AfD politicians are basically constantly persecuted by intrigue. In case of Hampel, however, Holger Pieters tends to believe that his way of working is cause of evil. This is "devastating". "He keeps his speeches, but is not re to push things forward," says Pieters about Hampel. According to his portrayal, it is a rar scary structure, which is to be chosen on Sunday in Lower Saxony under abbreviation AfD. "The trenches," says Holger Pieters, "move across all of party's camps."Controversial "model Democrat" of AfD AfD may occupy office of a Bundestag president in new Parliament.
