Due to election night, the Germans were deprived of their usual Tatot. They did not lose the game in the exchange. In terms of drama, the political spectacle they participated in is worthy of their Sunday detective drama.Even added a dose of suspense: at the end Tatot, We know the murderer, Germany fell asleep on Sunday and do not know who will become its future prime minister.
To be honest, this is not surprising. In recent days, conservative candidate (CDU-CSU) Armin Laschet recalled that nothing can stop the second party from seeking to form a coalition. This is exactly what he repeated on Sunday after reading the first estimate, in which the Social Democratic Party (SPD) leads by about 26% and the Conservative Party by 24%. “We will do our best to form a government led by the CDU-CDU”, Shortly before 7pm, Mr. Laschet announced at the CDU headquarters in Berlin, and noticed “Completely unsatisfactory result”.
Less than ten minutes later, four kilometers away, Olaf Schultz also declared victory. “Today, a large number of voters voted for the Social Democratic Party because they want to change the government. They want the next prime minister to be called Olaf Schultz.”, Announcing that the candidate of the Social Democratic Party called him in the third person in the lobby of the Social Democratic Party building, next to the statue of former Prime Minister Willie Brandt.
However, this parallelism should not be misleading. If they are close, then the results of the Social Democratic Party and the CDU-CSU will not have the same political significance. For the Social Democrats, according to the provisional official statistics announced by the Federal Election Commission on Monday, these 25.7% of the votes were a real success because they only received 20.5% of the votes in 2017. On the other hand, for conservatives, this 24.1% is catastrophic: a decrease of 9% compared with 2017, and even a decrease of 17% compared with 2013. The CDU-CSU Ri set the worst score in its history.
Tingling, given some symbolic partial results, this defeat is even more so. In Stralsund (Mecklenburg-West Pomerania) on the Baltic coast, it was the SPD candidate who won the constituency where Angela Merkel had been in charge for three decades. In Aachen (North Rhine-Westphalia), Armin Laschet’s stronghold, the CDU candidate was defeated by the Green Party. In Saarland, the Minister of Economy, Peter Altmeier (CDU), is loyal to MI Merkel lost to her colleague in charge of foreign affairs, Social Democrat Heiko Maas. In the same area, Secretary of Defense Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer was defeated by an opponent of the Social Democratic Party. In Hessen, Helge Braun (CDU), the second-ranked Federal Chancellery, was also defeated by the Social Democratic Party.
