VEITSHOCHHEIM - Seeking to end debate within his own party, the head of a rightwing political party in Germany has vowed never to enter into an alliance with what he called
"extremist scum" in the radical far right spectrum.

Addressing delegates to a convention of his rightwing Republican Party, national chairman Rolf Schlierer dismissed talk of an alliance with the far-right National Party of Germany (NPD) and the even more radical German People‘s Union (DVU).

In a keynote address, he said both of those parties were comprised of "extremist scum who have a political philosophy diametrically opposed to that of the Republican Party".

Seeking to dispel efforts to create a rightwing alliance, he added, "We do not intend to traverse this path - the way of street battles and torchlight processions that brought such ignominy upon our nation in the 20th Century."

Stating that the Republican Party stands for democracy, he went on, "We cannot work with these extremist scum who openly deride democracy."
