Berlin - The AfD member of the Bundestag Axel Gehrke has died after a long and serious illness.

With the MP from Schleswig-Holstein, the AfD is losing a "humanly and professionally valued colleague and committed colleague from the very beginning".

Gehrke was health policy spokesman for the parliamentary group until he fell ill in autumn 2019. He had earned a high reputation by his polite and winning personality and his great expertise, it was said in the announcement of the parliamentary group leaders Alice Weidel and Alexander Gauland. "We express our deepest condolences to his family and relatives," said parliamentary group leaders Alice Weidel and Alexander Gauland.

Gehrke was born in 1942 in Pomerania in what is now Poland.

The doctor was head of the department for physical medicine and rehabilitation of the inner city clinics in Munich.

In 2013 he joined the AfD, which four years later moved into the Bundestag.

Gehrke no longer wanted to run for the federal election in 2021 *.

Most recently Gehrke lived with his family in Ostholstein.

He was married and has three children.
