Meuthen claimed their lives were in danger, and said, «We are furious about this. We're a party that stands completely by the rule of law and freedom. And we want to take care of... Еще the democratic discourse.» During the meeting, co-founder of Alternative for Germany member Alexander Gauland stressed «of course we have to pursue the government,» adding «we want to take our country back,» on Monday. Sunday’s results made the AfD Germany’s third largest party, gaining 12.6% of the vote. Having surpassed the mandatory five percent threshold, the AfD will now enter the Bundestag for the first time.
