Prensa El año más largo de Angela Merkel

La política de refugiados mantenida por el gobierno alemán le sigue pasando factura al partido de Angela Merkel en forma de derrotas electorales, caída en las encuestas sobre intención de votos, críticas desde la CSU y la incapacidad para frenar el éxito del discurso populista y contrario a la entrada de solicitantes de asilo. El episodio más reciente ha tenido lugar el pasado 4 de septiembre en las elecciones al Parlamento regional de Mecklemburgo-Pomerania Occidental, a través de las cuales el partido populista Alternativa para Alemania (AfD) ha logrado superar por primera vez a la CDU.

Prensa The SPD's Shift to the Left

The last elections to the regional parliament of Thuringia of September 14 are having more important consequences for German politics than expected at first. Despite the predictable victory of the candidate of the CDU (Christian Democratic Union) and current Minister-President of the region, Christine Lieberknecht, with 33. 5% of the vote – a 2. 2% increase on the 2009 elections – the strong emergence of the party Alternative for Germany (AfD) with 11 seats has led to the departure of the Liberal Party (FDP) from Parliament. The FDP has lost the 7 seats it had won on the last term, which has complicated the formation of the future regional government, to the point that it could imply the CDU moving to the opposition in the Thuringian Landtag for the first time.

More than four months have elapsed since CDU/CSU and SPD formed a coalition in Germany. This time, the aim was to avoid the errors made by both parties in the previous coalition of 2005-2009, after Gerhard Schröder’s defeat and the election of Angela Merkel as Chancellor. The result of said coalition was not satisfactory to either party, but was especially harmful to SPD. The Social Democratic Party decreased by more than 11 points in the following 2009 election and CDU/CSU had to form a coalition with the Liberals to continue in office.
