German Chancellor Angela Merkel will have a tough time forming a coalition after Sunday's lacklustre election showingMore

"Cem Ozdemir, co-leader of the Greens, told a news conference the party would focus on climate change, Europe and social justice in coalition talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel after Sunday's federal election". The East has been reported to have felt the effects of uneven development where it has not caught up with Western Germany after reunification. In search of allies, she must seek a new majority. The former Goldman Sachs banker was quoted as comparing Merkel's government to "pigs" for allowing almost 1 million migrants and refugees ― many of them fleeing war-torn nations in the Middle East ― into the country.

However, for Merkel the victory is somewhat hollow, as the CDU received its poorest turnout since 1949, according German TV channel ZDF. One may debate the merits of such advice on an individual level, but as national policy it's wishful thinking, not the way to fight and defeat terrorists.

For over a year, the CSU has been harshly critical of the Merkel third administration, especially its immigration policy. "This is particularly the case for populist radical-right parties in Germany, as we have seen already in state parliaments with Die Republikaner (the Republicans) and the German People's Union in the 1990s". Not his time around. With the SPD in the opposition, the only coalition option that would earn the CDU/CSU and its allied parties more than 50 percent of the Bundestag is known as the "Jamaica" coalition: the CDU/CSU (the black party), the Green Party and the Free Democratic Party (FDP, also known as the yellow party).

This announcement from the SPD leaves Merkel with the task of trying to form an alliance with the far-left Free Democrats and the Green Party. But things are likely to be different this time around. The party's two lead candidates in the election are opposites.

But Germany's path towards more purposeful interventions will be hindered by the rise of far-right tendencies characterised by nationalism and anti-immigrant sentiment on home soil.

The AfD won 12.6 per cent of the vote on Sunday, making it the first right-wing party to sit in the Bundestag in 60 years.

She said she could not stand with an "anarchistic party" that lacked a credible plan to govern and said she would sit in parliament as an independent. Despite the win, Merkel and the CDU are not celebrating too hard. The party has been treated as a pariah by other groups and the mainstream media in Europe who routinely refer to it as far-right. Leonid Bershidsky argues that the results are good for Germany's democracy. "Now it's all about averting damage to Germany as a place of business", Dieter Kempf, president of the BDI industry association, said.
