AfD scored its strongest-ever results in state elections in eastern Germany on Sunday. Finishing second behind the country’s major parties.
The AfD party finished second in Saxony to Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats (CDU) and second in Brandenburg to the center-left Social Democrats (SPD).
The results represent a blow to Merkel’s ruling coalition with the SPD, and will be viewed as a victory for the AfD, which took 27.5% of votes in Saxony and 23.5% in Brandenburg.
AfD was able to triple its share in Saxony and doubling it in Brandenburg since their last state elections five years ago.
We wish further success to our German friends.
