Far-right AfD MP quits party whip just after being elected.

The strange world of RW German politics?
One of the politicians elected to the German parliament for the far-right Alternative For Germany (AfD) party has resigned the whip before even taking her seat.

Frauke Petry, one of the co-chairs of the party, told reporters in Berlin she would not sit in the party's group in the Bundestag, effectively making her an independent MP.
