AfD Creates Its Bundestag Faction
In This Photo: Rene Springer
New members of the Bundestag faction of the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD), including Rene Springer (L), arrive to receive documents and amenities from Bundestag workers prior to the first meeting of the faction on September 26, 2017 in Berlin, Germany. The AfD came in third place with 12.6%, which gives it 94 seats in the Bundestag, the German parliament. One seat will however go to Frauke Petry, a leading AfD member from Saxony who in a surprise move announced yesterday that she will not join the AfD faction and instead serve as an independent.
