Exit Polls: Merkel's CDU Wins Saxony State Vote, Eurosceptics Surge

by Wochit 0:48 mins

Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives were set to keep power in the east German state of Saxony after winning an election on Sunday. But, a new rival on the right--the Alternative for Germany--made a breakthrough by getting its first seats in a state assembly. Exit polls after voting closed at 6 p.m. in Germany showed Merkel's Christian Democrats--who have run Saxony since German unification in 1990--winning almost 40 percent, followed by the Left and Social Democrats in second and third place. Bernd Lucke, under whose leadership the euroskeptics won seats in the European Parliament in May, said "The Alternative for Germany has finally arrived on the German party landscape."
