Germany Election Results, Exit Polls Show Merkel and her Free Democratic Allies Win
September 27, 2009 in International Greens
Election results from Germany are trickling in and exit polls are showing Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats on track with 33.5% and the Free Democrats at 14.5%. That doesn’t equal 50% I know, but all the stories I’ve read said that due to quirks in seat allocatement, they will have enough to form government.
The Social Democrats are performing dismally at 23.5%. It looks like a rear guard action at this point for them. The Greens have 10% and the Left is at 13%.
Turnout is reported to be very low compared to the last federal election held in 2005.
Stay tuned for more election results from Germany and Portugal as they develop.
