The Daily Herald - - NATION & WORLD -

BER­LIN — A na­tion­al­ist, anti-im­mi­gra­tion party per­formed strongly in a state elec­tion Sun­day in the re­gion where Ger­man Chan­cel­lor An­gela Merkel has her po­lit­i­cal base, over­tak­ing her con­ser­va­tives to take sec­ond place amid dis­con­tent with her mi­grant poli­cies. The three-year-old Al­ter­na­tive for Ger­many, or AfD, won 20.8 per­cent of votes in the elec­tion for the state leg­is­la­ture in Meck­len­burg-Western Pomera­nia. Merkel’s Chris­tian Democrats polled 19 per­cent, their worst re­sult yet in the state.
