Quick overview of all federal election results and graphics
Millions of Germans elected on Sunday the 20th session of the German Bundestag – according to the preliminary official final result, the Social Democratic Party wins before the union. Here you will find the latest developments and graphics.
DrThe Social Democratic Party narrowly won the federal election. The Social Democrats got 25.7 percent of the vote, according to the preliminary final result, announced Monday morning by the Federal Repatriation Officer. The percentage of the union was 24.1 percent. The Green Party came in third with 14.8 percent, followed by the Freedom and Development Party with 11.5 percent, and the Alternative for Germany with 10.3 percent.
The left received 4.9 percent of the vote – it crossed the five percent barrier. But since it won three direct constituencies, the so-called basic mandate clause applies. This means that the left goes to the Bundestag with a full number of 39 members entitled according to the outcome of the second vote.
The Southern Schleswig Electors Assembly (SSW) will also have a seat in the new Bundestag. For the party of national minorities of Danes and Frisians, the five percent clause and the basic mandate clause do not apply. So your second vote in Schleswig-Holstein is enough for one seat.
The formation of a complex government is emerging. The only conceivable alliance between the two parties would be a new grand coalition, which neither the SPD nor the Federation want. This is why there will likely be a tripartite coalition in the federal government for the first time since the 1950s. In terms of calculations, there are many possible constellations.
According to the Infratest dimap, voter turnout this year was 76.0%, and according to the Election Research Group, 77.0%. In 2017, it was 76.2 percent.
Election result: current extrapolation
In this year’s general election, about 60.4 million Germans were eligible to vote, including 31.2 million women and 29.2 million men. According to the Federal Return Officer, the number of eligible voters will likely be lower than in the 2017 federal election. At that time, there were about 61.7 million people.
