Germany: AfD nearly doubles support in repeat Berlin elections

Sharing is Caring!

Traditionalist patriotic party, the Alternative For Deutschland is making headway in its mission to halt Germany’s decline.

After a Berlin court ordered the repeat elections in select districts, the Alternative for Germany nearly doubled its support from the September 2021 vote.

On Sunday, 550,000 citizens were able to vote, amounting to a fifth of the city’s population in 455 districts, with the AfD scoring 12.6 percent of the vote. In 2021, their overall share was only 7 percent.

In one eastern district, Marzahn-Hellersdorf, the AfD received the most votes of any party, amounting to 33.1 percent of the vote. In 2021, the AfD managed only 18.5 percent of the vote in this district. The Christian Democratic Union (CDU) received 21.5 percent of the vote in the same district, coming in second place.

It’s going to have an impact on the EU elections too.
