Germany: 'We will hunt Merkel down and return our country' - AfD's Gauland

Germany, Berlin
September 24, 2017 at 16:53 GMT -00:00 · Published

"We will hunt them down. We will hunt Mrs Merkel or whoever it is down and we will return our land to our people," Alternative for Germany (AfD) Co-founder Alexander Gauland said to supporters gathered in a Berlin nightclub, Sunday.

Supporters of the AfD, the far right party that has pushed an anti-immigration agenda, were celebrating a historic result in the German federal election, with exit polls suggesting it will become the country’s third-strongest party.

The party is predicted to pass the 5% threshold for the first time in its 4-year history, with around 13% of the vote, meaning it will receive 80-90 seats in parliament.

As was forecast, Angela Merkel's CDU will remain Germany's largest party with 32% and its main opposition, the Social Democrats led by Martin Schultz, managed a 20% share, however, both under-performed compared to pre-election polls.

"Les cazaremos. Cazaremos a la señora Merkel o a quien sea, y le devolveremos nuestra tierra a nuestra gente”, dijo el cofundador de Alternativa para Alemania (AfD) Alexander Gauland a sus partidarios que se concentraron en un club nocturno de Berlín el domingo.

Los partidarios de AfD, el partido de extrema derecha que ha impulsado una agenda anti-inmigración en Alemania, celebraron un resultado histórico en las elecciones federales alemanas, con las encuestas a pie de urna sugiriendo que se convertiría en el tercer partido más fuerte del país.

Si se cumplen los pronósticos, será la primera vez que superen el umbral del 5 por ciento en sus cuatro años de historia, lo que significa que entrarán en el Bundestag por primera vez.

Como se preveía, el partido CDU/CSU de Angela Merkel seguirá siendo la fuerza más votada con el 32 por ciento de los votos, y el principal partido de oposición, los socialdemócratas liderados por Martin Schulz, lograrían un 20 por ciento. No obstante, ambos obtendrían resultados inferiores a los que arrojaban las encuestas pre-electorales.
