http://m.bbc.com/news/world-europe-30124725Leftist parties in Germany have agreed a historic coalition deal which will see the first far-left regional president since the fall of communism.
Bodo Ramelow of the socialist Die Linke (Left party) is set to become state premier of Thuringia next month.
Die Linke, rooted in the old East German state Communist party, has never led a state government.
The real significance of this new left-wing government is not a sign of a rise of the radical left. Overall support for Die Linke has not risen dramatically over the past few years. Rather, it is proof that the long-fragmented left is getting its act together, and is able to break taboos to co-operate.
