SPD is ahead in elections in Bremen

The Social Democrats have been in power in Bremen for almost 80 years. This is likely to remain the case in the future. According to forecasts, the SPD received 29.5 to 30 percent of the votes.

Bremen. According to forecasts, the SPD has become the strongest force in the elections in the state of Bremen. According to figures from ARD and ZDF on Sunday (6 p.m.), Mayor Andreas Bovenschulte’s Social Democrats, who have been in power for almost 80 years, are 29.5 to 30 percent ahead of the previously oppositional CDU with 24.5 to 25.5 percent.

SPD General Secretary Kevin Kühnert was extremely satisfied with his party’s expected victory. “We are extremely proud of the SPD in Bremen and Bremerhaven,” said Kühnert on Sunday evening.

The Greens, governing with the SPD, come to 12 to 12.5 percent in the two-city state of Bremen and Bremerhaven. The Left Party, as the third coalition partner, achieved 10.5 to 11 percent in the state parliament, which is called the citizenship there.

CDU Vice Jung: The situation of the CDU in the federal government is different than in Bremen

The deputy CDU federal chairman Andreas Jung sees the failure of his party as no indication of the nationwide situation of the party. Bremen has always been a difficult place for his party, Jung said on Sunday evening on ARD. The situation is different at federal level, where the CDU/CSU are far ahead of the SPD in all surveys.

According to the forecasts, the FDP is between 5 and 5.5 percent. The Bremen FDP top candidate Thore Schäck was cautiously optimistic about the performance of his party after the first forecast. The goal of moving back into the citizenship seems to have been achieved, said Schäck on Sunday evening at the FDP election party. “We have to be a bit careful, of course these are only forecasts so far,” he emphasized. But he goes into the rest of the election evening with a good feeling.

The local right-wing populist movement Bürger in Wut (BIW) improved significantly to 10.5 percent. It benefits from the fact that the AfD was not allowed to vote because of internal competing lists of candidates.

Due to the complicated Bremen electoral system, the provisional official final result is not expected until Wednesday. Bremen and Bremerhaven are considered separate elective areas, each with its own five percent hurdle. A party that jumps the hurdle in an electoral area is represented in the citizenship.
