left wing need the. the fight is not over the fight starts now we've become much stronger no one can remove us from germany politics anymore we're staying where german politics is quite keen on a bit of self reflection a bit of navel gazing and what we've seen from other politicians who have been looking at these results from alternative for germany and they're not happy about the role they've played in allowing a.f.d. to make such big games. i am happy that we have a really good result what worries me is a result in this means we continue to face big challenges in this country. we all hope for more and wished for more and i'm also disappointed like many others are disappointed no question i as the lead candidate also share responsibility for this result alters of the journey were founded as a. anti euro euro skeptic party back in 2013 but it was following the influx
