Meuthen restore it commented that Kalbitz's going on before the ordinary courts against the expulsion. "The party internally, the process is completed. Mr Kalbitz is no longer a member. And if he wants to call a civil court, then he should go all the way.“ To said warnings of a split in the right-wing populist party Meuthen: "We have, in the case Kalbitz dissent, triggering significant unrest and dispute in the party. Sometimes it must be. My firm objective is that we have pacified until the end of the year the party to the extent that we are able to go fights of the year 2021 closed in the election.“
