Frauke Petry, the first Blue Party member in the Bundestag.

The Blue Party (German: Die blaue Partei) is a right-wing conservative political party in Germany. It was formed on 17 September 2017.[1] It split from the AfD after the 2017 election. The party tries to attract moderate former AfD voters.

The Blue Party is eurosceptic (meaning they are critical of the European Union). The party also wants more restrictions on immigration. Many of the party's policies are similar to those of the AfD.[2]
