Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Who are the 'Free Voters' and what do they want?

Basically, a state-wide association of independents.  You can run in German elections without being a party -- being a civic initiative is enough, and if enough of these allies themselves across several election districts, they can run a 'party' list, too. There are local Free Voters' groups at several places, and they had some successes in local elections, but this is the first time they made it in a regional (state) election.

For more, see discussion in yesterday's OT.
