German Federal Election Briefing 2017
Angela Merkel was re-elected as Chancellor in the German General Elections on Sunday. Despite significant losses in voting share, she secured a fourth term.
Dods’ UK and German Monitoring teams have prepared a Briefing explaining the result and collating reactions. As Merkel cannot govern alone – the briefing also looks at her likely coalition partners the Free Democrats (FDP) and the Greens, and how they might influence Germany’s Brexit stance and the UK-EU negotiations.
