Mired in a power struggle, Germany's right-wing AfD party has now picked two top candidates for the federal election in September. They could hardly be more different.
The far-right Alternative for Germany may be unravelling at the edges after a disgruntled member struck off on his own. That's bad news for the populists ahead of key elections, says DW political analyst Jefferson Chase.
Was the brutal attack on AfD lawmaker Frank Magnitz a politically motivated assault, or even an attempt on his life? Some of his fellow party members believe so and blame their political foes for stoking hatred.
Prosecutors have begun a probe into AfD leader Alice Weidel over the alleged use of foreign donations to pay for internet campaigning. The party received large sums of money from donors in Switzerland and Belgium.
The far-right AfD's deputy leader, Georg Pazderski, says his party rejects right-wing radicalism. But with the party's youth wing under surveillance and supporters marching alongside neo-Nazi activists, how true is that?
