Member of Parliament Hans-Thomas Tillschneider (44) stood for election on Friday and clearly missed the required majority.

In the secret ballot, Tillschneider received 21 yes votes, 64 deputies voted against him, and there was one abstention.

Since the state elections in the summer of last year, the AfD parliamentary group has repeatedly tried to have representatives of their parliamentary group elected deputy president of the state parliament.

Applicants Matthias Büttner (32) from Staßfurt, Hagen Kohl (53) and Christian Hecht (51) as well as Matthias Lieschke (52) failed.

Tillschneider – who is being observed by the Office for the Protection of the Constitution – was sharply criticized just a few weeks ago because he had taken part in a trip to Russia by several AfD MPs. Eventually the politicians called it off.

The AfD has 23 out of 97 members of parliament and is therefore dependent on support from other groups.
