Merkel’s party places 3rd in German election

by BBC  |  published on September 5, 2016

Angela Merkel’s ruling CDU party has been beaten into third place by an anti-immigrant and anti-Islam party in elections in a north-eastern German state.

The Alternative fuer Deutschland (AfD) party took just under 21% of the vote behind the centre-left SPD’s 30%.

The German chancellor’s CDU was backed by only 19% of voters, its worst ever result in the state.

The vote was seen as a key test before German parliamentary elections in 2017.

Before the vote in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania, in the former East Germany, all of Germany’s other parties ruled out forming a governing coalition with the AfD. But the party, formed only three years ago, is already represented in nine of Germany’s 16 state parliaments.

    Until her stand on Muslim immigration, Merkel was good for Germany. Wonder what happened to her, did she have a stroke? Was she paid off by the Saudis or other very rich Arab potentates. Is she looking to retire as a BILLIONAIRE or a JAILBIRD.

    The people spoke very loudly. Will Ms. Merkel hear them and adjust course? If not she may find that she will have more free time at the end of 2017 than at the beginning.

    This pathetic woman hates her country and people as much as Obama hates this country and it’s people! A least they’ve tried to assassinate her, something we’ve not been lucky enough to have!
