German Federal Election

News Event:

Federal Elections will be held in Germany on the 24 September 2017 to elect the members of the 19th Bundestag. The new Bundestag will have to elect a Chancellor with an absolute majority of its members, who will form a new government.

The Christian Democratic Union (CDU) led by Angela Merkel has maintained the lead over the Social Democratic Party (SPD) in opinion polling since the 2013 election, aside from a period in early 2017 following the selection of Martin Schulz as SPD leader.

Since then, Merkel's government has tightened asylum procedures and implemented other measures, and the influx has receded.
