Right-wing populists on path to German national parliament, AfD says

Germany's new right-wing populist Alternative for Germany sees the Berlin city election result as signalling the party is on the way to entering the national parliament.

"We have achieved a great result," says AfD deputy leader Beatrix von Storch.

"The AfD has arrived in the [German] capital and is also on a direct path to the Bundestag," says von Storch.
