Germany is in the midst of a Superwahljahr – with elections in six German states and a federal election which will mark the end of Angela Merkel’s time as Chancellor. In March, voters took to the polls in Baden-Würtemberg and Rhineland-Palatinate. This Sunday, the last election in the run up to September 26 will take place in the eastern German state of Saxony-Anhalt. Although it is a relatively small state, the looming question is whether the right-wing populist Alternative for Germany will beat out the CDU as the strongest party in the state? How will other parties fare?
Join the American Council on Germany for a discussion with political scientist Prof. Dr. Christian Stecker about Sunday’s election results – and what they might mean for German election campaigning in the coming months.
