Björn Höcke is said to have been infected with the corona virus. The planned federal party conference of the AfD will also be postponed to 2022.
Update from Friday, November 26th, 2021, 2:25 p.m.: Due to the worsening Corona situation, the AfD is postponing its federal party conference planned for December in Wiesbaden. The AfD federal board decided on Friday (November 26th, 2021) in a conference call, as reported by the German press agency. The party congress was actually planned for December 11th this year, but will not take place until 2022. A specific date should possibly be found in the coming week.
Just a few days ago, the federal executive board initially held on to the party congress, but pointed out the then applicable 2G rules in hotels (vaccinated and convalescent) in Hesse and in neighboring Rhineland-Palatinate. A large part of the AfD members reject a vaccination against Covid-19.
The AfD delegates want to elect a new federal board at the party congress. Of the two previous chairmen, only Tino Chrupalla is still running. The long-time co-chairman Jörg Meuthen no longer wants to run for office.
