Merkel recognized that the victory was not quite cause for celebration. Of these, 246 will be CDU / HSU, the GSDP will receive 153 mandates (40 less than in 2013), an alternative to Germany will occupy 94 seats, SvDP - 80 seats, Leftists - 69, Greens - 67. activity was 76.2% - 4.7% more than the previous parliamentary elections.

Two years after Merkel left German borders open to more than 1 million migrants, the anti-immigration Alternative for Germany (AfD) stunned the establishment by becoming the first far-right party to enter parliament in more than half a century.

"Of course we would have preferred a better result", Merkel said, according to The Associated Press. At the last election, they were following this anti-euro, anti-bailout agenda. However, according to Mr Ladegast, her coalition member for the past four years, the center-left Social Democrats (SPD) suffered a new post-war low gaining only about 20 percent and is not apt to remain tied to the CDU.

The Social Democratic Party (SPD) will get 153 seats, which is 40 less than after the 2013 elections.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel is expected to reach out to the Green Party and the Free Democrats (FDP) to form a coalition government after the German election results on Sunday failed to deliver her a clear majority in the Bundestag.

"Today is a hard and bitter day", said SPD leader Martin Schulz, who had hoped to take the chancellorship from Merkel.

"It is abhorrent that the AfD party, a disgraceful reactionary movement which recalls the worst of Germany's past and should be outlawed, now has the ability within the German parliament to promote its vile platform", Lauder was quoted as saying by Reuters. Weidel firmly denies she ever wrote the email, and AfD accused newspaper Welt am Sonntag of running a smear campaign against the party.

"She is less popular because of us", said Nabil Zainaldin, 32, from Aleppo.

Germany in particular is coping with the arrival of more than 1 million refugees and other new migrants, with tension with Russian Federation since Moscow's incursions into Ukraine, and with doubt about Europe's future since Britain voted to quit the EU. Strategists at Société Générale warn that the increase in support for the AfD and FDP could make Germany's European Union policies "more cautious and restrictive, irrespective of which coalition takes office".
