    Nice surge for the Greens alright but they've had previous , maybe not as strong . A safe haven for soft left people maybe plus those worried about climate change (the Greens in Sweden though nearly exited the Parliament despite the worst forest fires ever so who knows how it will go in the future ) . Linke's Rosa Luxemburg Foundation usually has good analysis for those of us on the left (you wont get much in English elsewhere anyhow) https://www.rosalux.de/en/news/id/39...ational-trend/

    The Queen is dead. long live the Queen



    Amid tears and cheers, Germany’s ruling centre-right Christian Democratic Union backed evolution over revolution on Friday and elected an Angela Merkel ally as its new leader.

    Dr Merkel stood down after 18 years and, after the CDU’s most passionate leadership race in half a century, delegates elected as successor Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer with a narrow majority of just 35.

    In a passionate pre-vote speech, Ms Kramp-Karrenbauer denied she was a “mini” Merkel but, in her 18-year rise in the southwestern state of Saarland, she learned that “leadership depends on inner strength, not volume”.

    Amid pressure by party conservatives to shift the party right, she insisted the CDU must remain a confident party of the centre and not one “looking fearfully left and right”.
