Election Day (Bundestagswahl 2005)

Today we elect our new parliament. Off to the voting booth…more about the vote, results etc later on…

For more on the german parliament and the voting process see this WikiPedia entry.

Update: 15 minutes until the polling stations close…there should be some early projections soonish…

Update: First projections (RTL/ZDF)…

  • SPD: 33.5 % / 33.0 %
  • CDU: 36.0 % / 37.0 %
  • Gruene: 8.5 % / 8.0 %
  • FDP: 10.5 % / 10.5 %
  • Die Linke: 8.5 % 8.0 %

So after the first projection none of the usual confederacies have got a majority (“old government” SPD + Gruene = 42%, CDU + FDP = 45%)…let’s see how this evolves…

Update: Here’s a link to the ARD monitor which will keep you updated on the newest projections ARD Wahlmonitor 2005 (You need a flash player for this one)

Update: Latest projection 0:02 locale time

  • SPD: 34.2 %
  • CDU: 35.2 %
  • Gruene: 8.1 %
  • FDP: 9.8 %
  • Die Linke: 8.7 %

I’m really curious how this whole thing is going to work out…enough election for today…let’s see what tomorrow and the following days bring us…
