Saxony's Left Party has recorded an unusual increase in membership. Over the past weekend, 56 people joined the party in one fell swoop, said William Rambow, spokesman for the state association, when asked by the German Press Agency. He cited several calls, including from the Left Party's European candidate Carola Rackete, during the national party conference last Saturday in Augsburg, as the reason for this.
"This is an unusually large surge in party memberships," emphasized Rambow. From the beginning of the year to mid-October, there were 89 new members joining the Saxony state association.
The Berlin Left Party has recorded a mass influx of members. On Monday, 269 people joined the party in one fell swoop, state managing director Sebastian Koch announced.
