GERMAN eurosceptics could push for the country to quit the EU by 2024 unless the bloc is “completely changed” after the upcoming European Parliament elections.

The right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) commited to delivering “Dexit” unless the EU can undertake its “fundamental reform approaches” in the next legislative period between 2019-2024. While a German exit from the EU should only be seen as a “last option”, the growing eurosceptic movement is attempting to implement a number of radical EU changes. One of its reforms would see the European Parliament and 751 MEPs effectively scrapped in favour of a “European assembly” of just 100 delegates.

The new EU politicians would be nominated by “national parliaments proportional to the fractional strength”, which would also spell the end of European elections.

The AfD states that if the reforms are not implemented “we deem necessary to consider a withdrawal of Germany or an orderly dissolution of the European Union and the establishment of a new European economic and interest community”.

According to the party, 44,000 EU officials and 11,000 employees cost over €8billion a year – 4,000 of those officials earn more than €290,000 a year, which is more than the German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s salary.
