BERLIN (Reuters) – Germany’s CDU/CSU conservatives and their Social Democrat rivals were tied in Sunday’s national election, an exit poll showed, leaving open which of them will lead the next government as Angela Merkel prepares to stand down after 16 years in power.
CDU/CSU won 25%, the weakest result they have achieved in a federal election since World War II and was on par with Social Democrat(SPD), according to an infratest survey for broadcaster ARD.
Attention will now shift to informal discussions – likely with the Greens and liberal Free Democrats (FDP) – followed by more formal coalition negotiations https://reut.rs/2ZeqYw3, which could take months, leaving Merkel in charge in a caretaker role.
