    This Member of European Parliament has held many roles, including IBM manager, president of the BDI (German industry association) and federal board member of the AfD (German political party). He believes German Chancellor Angela Merkel's refugee policy is responsible for recent AfD successes and their inclusion in state parliaments. Henkel shows understanding for the voters - many were not aware that the AfD has been infiltrated by right-wing forces and are in for a rude awakening.
