Another Electoral Blow to German Establishment

Angela Merkel's party suffers slump in Berlin election
After voting booths closed at 6pm CET, first projections put the centre-left Social Democrats (SPD) on 23.2%, ahead of the centre-right Christian Democratic Union (CDU) on 17.9%. The Green party and leftwing Die Linke are vying for third place, with 16.7% and 16.2% of the vote respectively.

Anti-immigration populists Alternative für Deutschland are set to enter the German capital’s state parliament for the first time, with a projected 11.8%.
