German States Seek to Ban Neo-Nazi Party

FSWC Reports:


The heads of Germany's 16 federal states unanimously agreed on Thursday to push ahead with a legal bid to ban the far-right National Democratic Party  (NPD) despite reservations from Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The agreement follows a similar recommendation by regional interior ministers on Wednesday. The Bundesrat upper house, which represents the federal states, will now vote on Dec. 14 on whether to file a case with the Constitutional Court in Karlsruhe.
