Tyskland valg: Rival partier i sidste skub for stemmer




MerkelGermany’s rival parties are in their final day of campaigning ahead of Sunday’s parliamentary elections. Polls suggest Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats will win the biggest share of the vote. But her current coalition partners, the Free Democrats, may not pass the 5% threshold for winning seats in parliament. If so, Merkel may have to consider a coalition with her main rival Peer Steinbrueck’s Social Democrats.

Merkel is holding a large rally in Stralsund and Steinbrueck is due to appear at an event in Frankfurt. Addressing a Christian Democratic Union (CDU) rally in Hanover on Friday, Merkel asked for votes to continue with her government’s policies into 2017.

“Please vote for the CDU on Sunday,” she said, “so that we can continue our solid policy for you, for your children, for your families and friends.

“So that in four years we are able to say that people in 2017 are doing better than they did in 2013; more people have jobs; the euro is more stable, Europe is more stable and we have less debt. This is my goal, ladies and gentlemen, and therefore I ask you for your support.”
