Germany’s election: CDU wins North Rhine-Westphalia vote

Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party won a critical victory in the North Rhine-Westphalia election on Sunday. formation and Communications.

The CDU won 34.5% of the vote to the Social Democrats (SPD)'s 30.6%.

Since the beginning of this year, the CDU has won all three regional elections. But recent public opinion surveys show the SPD with support equal to that of the CDU. This makes Martin Schulz, Chairman of the Social Democrats, a serious rival to Merkel in the Prime Minister's race. If the SPD should win the federal election, Schulz could establish a left-wing government that unites the Social Democrats, the Left, and the Greens.
