In Berlin, the Social Democratic Party, led by the country’s election leader Franziska Jaffe, took 21.4 percent of the vote, ahead of the Greens, which had its best result there with a profit of 18.9 percent. A tally of all votes showed that the CDU’s Christian Democrats got 18.1 percent. The Social Democratic Party and the Green Party can continue the current government coalition with the left, writes the Darfur Peace Agreement.

In addition to the German Bundestag elections, elections for the regional parliament were held in Berlin on Sunday, and the composition of the councils in the 12 Berlin regions was also determined, the daily Die Welt reported. However, the vote has several problems in the city. Because of the confusion or lack of ballot papers, long boards were formed in front of the polling stations, and the situation was complicated by the Berlin Marathon and related traffic jams. Some voters did not vote until the official conclusion of the elections at 6 pm.
The long era is over
In Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, where the Social Democrats have been in power since 1998, the SPD improved nine points to 39.6 percent of the vote compared to the previous election. The second most powerful party in the Schwerin county parliament is again the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD), which received 16.7% of the vote.
State Prime Minister Manuela Schweig (Social Democratic Party) now has several options to form a new government. She said before the elections that she would try to form a stable and reliable coalition. Its current coalition partners from the CDU have significantly weakened to 13.3 percent, which the country’s party leader Michael Sack called a disastrous outcome. A possible alternative is an alliance of the Social Democrats with the left or the Greens and Liberals of the FDP.
