AfD to fight for headscarf ban and mass deportations in election
The Alternative for Germany (AfD) party has released a draft campaign programme, outlining plans to ban all headscarves in public offices and schools.
The proposed programme was presented on Thursday in Berlin, as the upstart far-right party seeks to win its first seats in the Bundestag (German parliament) in September's election.
The AfD started in 2013 as a eurosceptic party, opposed to the single currency, but has shifted further to the right, gaining success in state parliaments over the past year through its anti-immigrant rhetoric amid the influx of refugees.
