Against the German federal government and Chancellor Angela Merkel, who recently appeared in public for the first time in a mask, received a petition with the German Constitutional Court.
According to Sueddeutsche Zeitung, the suit was filed by members of the right-wing party вЂњAlternative for GermanyвЂќ Tina Krupalla and Jorg Meuthen.
They demanded that the head of government be punished for her reaction to the Thuringia Prime Minister's vote, which was held in the Land Parliament on February 5 вЂ” on that day, AfD members voted together with representatives of the Christian Democratic Union Merkel for Thomas Kemmerich for the first time in history.
While on a visit to Africa, the Chancellor called it unforgivable and called for a second vote. This led to a scandal and reelection, and as a result, successor Merkel Annegret Kramp-Carrenbauer refused to run for Chancellor of Germany.
вЂњWhen the head of government uses the international arena and official state visit to delegitimize the results of democratic elections in Germany and the coalition, she abuses her powers and violates the constitution,вЂќ said AfD leader Jorg Moiten.
The German Constitutional Court confirmed receipt of the documents.
Earlier вЂњAlternative for GermanyвЂќ itself was in the center of the scandal вЂ” in addition to the regular support of Russia and Russian President Vladimir Putin, Federal Treasurer of the party Klaus Formann was accused of concealing foreign funding for AfD.
