President Angela Merkel’s party lost two state elections in southwestern Germany on Sunday. According to German media predictions, the CDU has not become the largest party in both Baden-W்டrttemberg and the Rhineland-Palatinate.
In Baden-Wூrttemberg, the CDU is expected to receive 24 percent of the vote, 3 percent less than in previous elections in 2016. In the Rhineland-Palatinate, the CDU received 26.5 percent of the vote. In 2016, the party received 31.8 percent of the vote. They were the worst results for the CDU in both areas.
According to observers, Merkel’s party is proposing a bill for issues involving long corona locks and CDU politicians, among other things, the trade in mouth masks.
In the prosperous Baden-Wர்டrttemberg, the Greens were clearly the largest party with about 32 percent of the vote, and may continue to be Germany’s first Green Prime Minister. In Berlin, Merkel’s coalition partner, the Social Democrats, took place in the Rhineland-Palatinate. The party received 35.2 percent of the vote there.
The right-wing populist alternative Thailand lost a few percent in both states, meaning that the progress of this new party seems to have stalled, at least in the southwest.
The referendums held in the federal states act as a barometer for the so-called national politics of this super election year. Further regional elections will follow, and in six months all of Germany will go to the polls to elect a new parliament in Berlin. Merkel, the head of government since 2005, will no longer stand for re-election.
