Almost 70 years after Nazi Germany crumbled, a radical right-wing party that critics say shows an affinity for Hitler's National Socialist movement looks set to enter the European Parliament for the first time due to a change in electoral law. The National Democratic Party, described by German intelligence as "racist, anti-Semitic and revisionist", has put stopping mass immigration at the core of its election program for this week's vote. Abolition of a German law allowing only parties with three percent of the vote to claim seats will almost certainly open the door to the NPD, which has been campaigning under slogans including "Money for granny instead of Sinti and Roma" and "the boat is full".
