The newly re-elected Alternative for Germany (AfD) party co-chairman, Jorg Meuthen denied allegations of misconduct and illegal campaign donations, while addressing delegates at the party's conference in Braunschweig on Saturday.

«I haven't done anything indecent. Secondly, I have not done anything illegal,» said Meuthen.
He continued saying «"It is not an affair or a scandal, but it is a harmless procedure that has been completely artificially built into something which it totally isn't.»
Meuthen, who is seen as a representative of the moderate wing within the party, was re-elected with 69 percent of the vote alongside 44-year-old Tino Chrupalla as the second co-chairman.
