Angela Merkel's TestPublic Deposited
This past week saw Germany hold federal elections for the Bundestag, the national parliament. The center-right Christian Democrat Union (CDU) gained 33% of the vote, essentially securing Angela Merkel’s fourth term as chancellor. The Social Democrats (SPD) secured 20.5% votes, retaining their position as the Bundestag’s second largest party. However, both parties saw their vote share drop precipitously since the last election, marking the decline of public support for Germany’s traditional parties and an upswing in support for more radical political alternatives.
