De winnaars en verliezers van de Duitse verkiezingen

De Duitse bondskanselier Angela Merkel heeft zondag bij de Bondsdagverkiezingen met haar partij CDU/CSU een grote overwinning behaald. Ze zal de coalitie met de liberale FDP volgens de prognoses echter niet kunnen voortzetten: deze partij haalde de kiesdrempel niet en zal uit de Bondsdag verdwijnen. De FDP heeft sinds de stichting van de Bondsrepubliek in 1949 altijd deel uitgemaakt van de Bondsdag.

De SPD van kanselierskandidaat Peer Steinbrück blijft met ongeveer 26 procent ver achter bij de CDU/CSU. De Groenen verloren zoals verwacht. De linkse partij Die Linke staat op rond 8 procent.
