Olaf Scholtz’s Social Democrat party in Germany has won the election against Merkel’s party by a narrow margin.
The Social Democrats secured 25.7% of the vote, compared to 24.1% for Armin Laschet and the CDU / CSU.
Scholtz made it clear that his party has a full mandate to lead.
Combinations for the ruling coalition that seems to be formed between the three German parties have started immediately. The SPD already has the constitutional right to form the government, but if it does not succeed then the relay passes to the CDU / CSU. In all likelihood, after 16 years, Germany seems to be heading for a change of government with the departure of Merkel and, with her, her party, the CDU / CSU.
