«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, a far-right, were celebrating a historic result in the German federal election, with exit polls suggesting it will become the country’s third... Еще-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 stand 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 underperformed compared to pre-election polls. The AfD's performance means it will be the first far-right party to enter the Bundestag in over six decades.
