4. Is FDP really a liberal party??

In 60s and 70s when I was paying more attention to German politics, I believe they were considered slightly left of CDU (conservative Christian Democratic Union, Merkle's party)and much to right of SPD (Socialist)

As I recall, they have often been a needed part of a CDU ruling coalition

From way on the outside it seems possible AfD (Nazi ) may have been playing a 'let's freak everybody out and really play games with German politics and civil order' [IIRC, Putin backs all far-right European parties/movements]

Why would AfD support FDP candidate?
