In the Federal state of Hesse held elections to the local Parliament.
The rating of the party of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian democratic Union (CDU) and its Bavarian partner the Christian social Union (CSU) fell again to record low levels.
As reported by DW, according to the survey conducted by the sociological Institute Emnid, if elections to the Bundestag took place on Sunday, October 28, for the conservative CDU/CSU would vote less than a quarter of voters (24%). This is one percent less than last week and the lowest rate during the survey Emnid.
According to other sociological institutions (Infratest Dimap, Allensbach, Forsa), the ranking CDU/CSU in October also continued to fall, reaching a record low.
October 28, in the Federal state of Hesse held elections to the local Parliament, according to sociologists, the CDU is in danger of sinking with more than 38 percent of the votes received in the elections of 2013, up 26 percent.
If the result of the game will indeed be so low, Merkel would struggle to get re-elected Chairman of the CDU at party Congress in Hamburg in early December.
On 25 September, the results of internal elections, a faction of the CDU/CSU in the Bundestag, headed by Ralph Brinkhaus, and for many years held this post close ally of Merkel, Volker Kauder did not receive a sufficient number of votes.
Merkel called the results of the intra-faction vote “defeat.” According to observers, the election results are a political earthquake in Berlin. The Vice-President of the Bundestag, social Democrat Thomas Opperman called the incident a “rebellion against Merkel and the beginning of the end of a “Grand coalition”.
Note that the threat of the collapse of the ruling coalition looms over Merkel, even in the summer of 2018 because of the rejection of the migration policy of the Chancellor from the heads of the Union CSU and the interior Minister Horst Seehofer.
July 2, Merkel and Seehofer came to the agreement on the migration issue, preventing the collapse of the ruling coalition. As noted by the head of the interior Ministry, during the talks, the sides “reached an agreement on how to prevent future illegal migration on the border of Germany and Austria”.
