State elec­tions re­sults make my party think, says Merkel

Asian Journal - - World -

Ber­lin: Ger­man Chan­cel­lor An­gela Merkel said on Mon­day that the re­sults of state elec­tions in Ger­many on Sun­day “make her party think”. Ger­man vot­ers cast their bal lots on Sun­day in the south­west­ern states of Baden-Wuert­tem­berg and Rhineland-Palati­nate as well as east­ern Sax­ony-An­halt to elect three new re­gional par­lia­ments. Anti-mi­gra­tion party, the Al­ter­na­tive for Ger­many (AfD), recorded re­mark­able gains in the elec­tions and was able to break into all three state par­lia­ments. Merkel’s Chris­tian Demo­cratic Union (CDU) took a beat­ing and lost voter sup­port in all three states.
