Bavaria Holds State Elections
The CSU, which is the Bavarian sister party to the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) of Chancellor Angela Merkel, has traditionally been the strongest party in Bavaria, though election polls indicate the CSU will have its worst election result in 60 years. The Social Democrats (SPD) are also down substantially in the polls, with the main winners likely to be the Greens Party and the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD).
