It’s a day of chaos on a scale that is astounding even for the AfD. In the end, there is a completely surprising leadership duo at the head of the AfD state association in Baden-Württemberg.

It’s a party congress the likes of which even experienced observers have seldom experienced: Extremely close voting results, candidates capitulating and a leader who sends everyone out of the hall because rumors of the manipulation of electronic voting machines are circulating. Two hostile camps are facing each other this Saturday at the AfD in Stuttgart – it’s about the successor to Alice Weidel, who is giving up the state chairmanship of the party in Baden-Württemberg because she wants to concentrate on her Berlin offices.
