5%-Block - 5%-Block
At the end of 1975 a number of small parties on the right edge of the political spectrum discussed an electoral alliance in order to jointly overcome the five percent hurdle in upcoming elections . On December 6, 1975, they met in Heidelberg and founded the Working Group of Voting Communities, Independent Parties and Citizens' Initiatives (AWUB) . Among other things, representatives of the extreme right-wing Association of Constitutional Forces (VVK), the extreme right-wing Combat League of German Soldiers (KDS), the Free Social Union (FSU) , the European Federalist Party (EFP) , the National Democratic Party of Germany (NPD) , the “right-wing bloc” discussed together “And desWorld Association for the Protection of Life (WSL) .  No agreement was reached. Nevertheless, a working group was formed from the AWUB under the leadership of Otto F. Schönbeck, which in 1976 launched the 5% bloc (5% bloc party) .
The program was the rejection of the parties represented in the Bundestag , the advocacy of a "Europe of Nations" and a take up of the environmental and life protection issues . Since the political differences predominated, the organization was unable to set up regional associations. The number of members was about 200. 
For the 1976 federal election, the 5% block, described by Richard Stöss as an extremely right-wing organization, with only one state list with six candidates in Bavaria  and five constituency candidates (three in Bavaria, including Erika Herbst as a direct candidate without a state list place in the federal constituency of Erlangen , as well as each one in Baden-Württemberg and North Rhine-Westphalia ). He achieved 985 first votes and 2940 second votes (<0.01%).
Due to its unsuccessfulness, the 5% bloc disbanded shortly afterwards, without leaving a successor organization.
