Right-wing populist AfD shakes up German political landscape

Frauke Petry, head of the right-wing populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) partyThe success of the anti-migrant AfD marks a turning point for Germany’s usually stable and consensus-driven politics — the rise of right-wing populists at the expense of old mainstream parties. The far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) made strong gains in three state polls Sunday in what was widely seen a protest vote against Chancellor Angela Merkel’s open-door policy on refugees. The AfD, whose rhetoric often echoes that of France’s Marine Le Pen and US White House hopeful Donald Trump, is now set to enter assemblies in half of German states and, if it maintains its momentum, would be elected to national parliament next year.
