Some experts believe that many German voters support AfD because they want to express their protest against the policies of the government. However, the politician believes that this is not the case.
"We are being elected because of what we have offered. We've identified a clear family policy. We've focused on domestic security. In addition, we want to do something in the field of housing construction. A further important topic for us is education policy, because in this area Berlin is doing far worse than any other federal state. These issues are of interest to many voters because they want changes in these areas," Pazderski stressed.
According to the politician, the ruling coalition doesn't act in the interests of the German citizens and is therefore rapidly losing their support.
"Neither the SPD, nor the CDU want to understand that citizens are fed up with the decisions that in the long run will change their city without their involvement. These elections have shown that citizens want to be asked," Pazderski stressed.
On Sunday, Berliners elected 149 members to the state parliament. Merkel's CDU suffered its worst ever results in the German capital, securing only 18 percent of votes in comparison with 23.3 percent five years ago. Another party of the ruling coalition — the Social Democratic Party (SPD) — gained only a slightly better result of 22%.
