While there is speculation in the ‘left’ camp about the founding of a new party, a new party that explicitly sees itself as conservative was founded in Berlin on Tuesday. This wants to offer “frustrated” conservatives a new political platform.
Under the slogan “Freedom, Prosperity, Security,” a new party wants to win members and voters from the conservative camp. Steffen Große, the newly elected federal chairman of “Bündnis Deutschland”, said in Berlin on Tuesday that there was a representation gap in this political spectrum. This came about “because the AfD failed as a coalition partner,” so that regardless of their decision at the ballot box, voters ultimately always had to live with a red-green policy.
One of the goals of “Bündnis Deutschland” is a reduction in the tax burden for employees, i.e. “more net from the gross”, said Große, who was once the state chairman of the Free Voters in Saxony. Secure, affordable energy, solid state finances and more doctors in rural areas are also important to the new party.
According to the information, the founding members also include former members of the CDU, CSU, SPD, FDP, AfD and the Liberal-Conservative Reformers (LKR), which were once founded by former AfD members around Bernd Lucke. Große confirmed that Markus Scheer is also a member. For years, Scheer was considered an important networker in the North Rhine-Westphalian AfD, from which he left in the spring.
Around 50 people took part in the inaugural meeting in Fulda last Saturday, said General Secretary Niklas Stadelmann. Many people interested in politics have already contacted her website. The board has decided to plant a tree for each member. The party wants to take part in the elections to the Bremen Parliament in May 2023.
