Die Linke (The Left)
The United States, along with Turkey, is the "grave digger of NATO", since they have been taking advantage of the alliance exclusively for their own benefit, believes Bundestag deputy and Foreign Policy representative of the parliamentary group Die Linke (The Left) Alexander Neu.
According to government data, 462 far-right extremists with warrants out for their arrest are still at large in Germany. Ulla Jelpke, a lawmaker for Die Linke (The Left) party, said the figure indicates the presence of an "established Nazi underground."
All eyes are on Wednesday’s debate in the German parliament on the 3rd Greek bailout plan worth 86bln Euros via the ESM. The discussion commenced at 10 in the morning and is expected to pass, but the interest will be focused on how many dissenters in Chancellor Angela Merkel’s party will vote against the party line.
The far-right National-Democratic Party of Germany (NPD) has won one MEP seat after Sunday's European elections.
NPD, which has received around 300 000 votes, benefits from an earlier decision by Germany's Constitutional Court to remove the three-percent election threshold for parties as "non-democratic" and "discriminatory".
