German government seeks to cut funding for far-right party

BERLIN (AP) — The German government and parliament have petitioned the country's highest court to cut off public funding for a far-right party that authorities tried unsuccessfully to ban. The Interior Ministry said the application to cut funding for the National Democratic Party was sent Friday to the Federal Constitutional Court. Officials want to exclude it from a system granting political parties funds based on their performance in elections. It isn't clear when the court will decide.
