Bundestag Cotar member leaves AfD

-

Joana Cotar sees opportunism in the AfD and criticizes her closeness to Kremlin boss Putin. Therefore, the member of the Bundestag now wants to leave the party.


Bundestag member Joana Cotar left the AfD. The Hessian parliamentarian announced on his Facebook page on Monday that he is leaving the party and parliamentary group.

Cotar, who counts himself among the party’s moderate leanings and is, by the way, a member of the federal executive committee, wrote on his website:

In the fight against rivals within the party, constant bullying, fueled by the party top and its networks, is the order of the day.

In addition, the “fight for a better Germany” receded into the background.

Opportunism in the AfD

Unlike other former AfD members such as former party leader Jörg Meuthen, the digital politician did not directly justify his departure as the AfD shifted further to the right.

Instead, Cotar wrote: “The far-right wing of the AfD was and is okay, it has always been in the minority.” More problematic are the “opportunists who give up their beliefs for the mandates, buy themselves in, and represent tomorrow the exact opposite of what they stand for today.”

Criticism of AfD officials for Putin’s closeness

In addition, Cotar criticized “the closeness of leading AfD officials to Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin”. He doesn’t want this anymore and won’t support it. He stated:

The AfD’s use of dictatorship and inhumane regimes in Russia, China and now Iran does not suit an honest, democratic and patriotic party.

Cotar began running the AfD as a top duo in the federal election campaign in 2021 alongside Joachim Wundrak. The duo lost in a member poll. Tino Chrupalla and Alice Weidel won the race.
