AfD federal spokesman Jörg Meuthen has welcomed the fact that Andreas Kalbitz is resigning his position as party leader in Brandenburg.

“I am delighted that the Brandenburg parliamentary group has decided that Andreas Kalbitz will no longer hold chairmanship for the time being. I think it's good news that it was unanimously approved, ”said Kalbitz to Cicero magazine.

Meuthen does not believe, however, that the internal party dispute has now been resolved. “Of course, we and I personally got headwinds from people who disagree with our decisions. This headwind will not turn into a mild breeze from now on. "But he is certain that the party will go into the election year 2021 as a whole and by then also come out of the polls again:" What matters is: where are we on election day? And we won't come out with eight percent, but with completely different values. ”Meuthen is calm about proceedings before the Berlin Regional Court in the Kalbitz case. He doesn't believe that the civil court would rule differently than the federal arbitration court. The AfD party leader justified the fact that he had not taken action against Kalbitz for years as follows: “I only found out a lot of things this year. When I started looking into it, I had to reassess many things. I wasn't aware of Mr. Kalbitz's environment, but I hadn't really dealt with it either. "
