Alternative for Germany (AFD) co-chair Frauke Petry stated that she would be a member of the Bundestag «for the time being» as an «individual deputy» and that she would pursue her «political goal» to achieve a «conservative turnaround» in Germany's Bundestag by 2021, in Berlin, Monday. Petry's comment comes after her Monday announcement that she had decided not to sit in parliament with AfD... Еще, which was followed by her storming out of a press conference. Petry spoke the morning after the federal elections, saying that she had considered her task to make the AfD a party «fit for government» but that «after long consideration» she would not be a member of the AfD's Bundestag faction. Sunday's results made the AfD Germany’s third largest party, gaining 12.6 percent of the vote. Having surpassed the mandatory five percent threshold, the AfD will now enter the Bundestag for the first time.
