Alternative fuer Deutschland Takes 21% in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania Regional Election

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.

This is humiliating for Angela Merkel – not least because this was on home turf. Mrs Merkel’s constituency is in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania.

Alternative fuer Deutschland’s anti immigrant and increasingly strident anti-Islam message has a powerful appeal to people concerned about integration and worried about domestic security.

The AfD, initially an anti-euro party, has enjoyed a rapid rise as the party of choice for voters dismayed by Mrs Merkel’s policy.

  1. Endlich die AfD mal am Zuge denn das jetztige Pack kann man nicht in unserer Gesellschaft gebrauchen.Haben unseren Staat zu grunde ruiniert, und nur ausgebeutet.solche Leute kann man nicht Wählen. Wir bauchen eine Partei, die sich für Rentner, Altersarmut, Jugendarbeitslosigkeit, und auch das Soziale umfeld muß Stimmen, Auch für die Innere Sicherheit muß etwas getan werden. Aber wenn unser Dagobert ( Scheuble ) weiter mit an den Finanzen sitzt werden wir nie ein anderes System rein bekommen. Die Jetzigen Politiker von CDU/CSU/SPD/Grüne müssen einfach weg. Nur nach Schweizer Vorbild soll es sein in Deutschland, und auch endlich mal eine Volksabstimmung durchzuführen. Daher werde ich nur eine Partei wählen nur die AfD.
