Leader of the centre-left Social Democratic Party (SDP) vied for final votes at an election campaign rally in Berlin on Friday, ahead of the weekend's general election. Schulz heavily condemned Germany's right-wing anti-immigration party Alternative for Germany (AfD), saying they were no alternative for Germany but rather a «disgrace for Germany». The AfD is currently polling at between 11 and... Еще 14 per cent. Merkel's plans to spend between 25 million and 30 million euros (22 million — 26 million pounds) more on Germany's defence industry also came under criticism. According to Schulz, Merkel wants to send two per cent of Germany's GDP to NATO.
