which always leads to the end of membership - regardless of which function or which office Member of the party currently holds.

" Nobis sees differently that Sayn-Wittgenstein can still hold her chairmanship: "With the delivery of the ruling of the Federal Arbitration Court, her membership in the AFD is over and she can no longer remain or be the country's chairman."
