Germany's AfD Slams Gov't Attempts to Spy on Party Ahead of Elections as 'Political Move'

The German government is trying to diminish the election results of the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) party ahead of the federal elections by initiating an investigation and threatening to place the entire party under surveillance over alleged ties to right-wing extremism, Albert Breininger, a member of the party said.

"According to our government, right-wing radicalism is the biggest problem in Germany, where there is no Islamic radicalism or any other issues to dream with. They are twisting facts and the concept itself: patriotism is called chauvinism, fascism or Nazism. Merkel's government simply uses the intelligence services to spy on us. It is a political move ahead of the elections. We are the biggest faction in the Bundestag after the ruling [Christian Democratic Union] CDU," Breininger said.
