Manfred Rouhs was, in 2011, federal chairman of the far-right anti-Islam German party Bürgerbewegung pro Deutschland.
In 2007, along with Markus Beisicht, Rouhs was described by Der Spiegel as one of the 'party chiefs' of Pro Köln, out of which Pro Deutschland and the Pro Bürgerbewegung network emerged.
He was formerly a member of the National Democratic Party (NDP).
According to research carried out by British group Hope Not Hate in 2011, Rouhs was also the publisher of the website nation24.de.
