KIS ANNOUNCEMENT FOR FAR RIGHT’S PARTY ENTRY IN THE BUDENSTAG Print
Tuesday, 26 September 2017 12:02

The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece congratulates Angela Merkel on securing her fourth consecutive term in the German Chancellery.

However, the overall results of the German federal elections of September 2017, with the strong presence of the extreme, xenophobic and anti-European party “Alternative for Germany” (AfD) in the country's federal Parliament, raise concern both for Germany itself and for all of Europe.

The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece shares the concern of the entire democratic world about the fact that a far-right xenophobic party enters the Bundestag for the first time since 1945. We ask from the German Government which will be formed soon to take into very serious consideration the results of these elections and search the cause of the rise of vote in favor of this particular xenophobic party.

At the same time, we express our conviction that the other parties in the Bundestag will preserve the democratic principles of Germany.
