Germany Elections Centre Left Claim Victory

Olaf Scholz of Germany’s Social Democratic Party: “Many voters… wanted a change in government”
Germany’s centre-left Social Democrats (SPD) have claimed victory in the federal election, telling the party of outgoing Chancellor Angela Merkel it should no longer be in power.
SPD leader Olaf Scholz said he had a clear mandate to form a government, while his conservative rival Armin Laschet remains determined to fight on.
The two parties have governed together for years.
But Mr Scholz says it is time for a new coalition with the Greens and liberals.
Preliminary results gave his party a narrow election win over the conservatives who suffered their worst-ever performance.
Despite this, Mr Laschet said his party had given him its backing to enter talks with coalition partners, pushing Germany towards a potentially protracted power struggle.
The Greens and pro-business Free Democratic Party (FDP) attracted the most support from the under-30s, in an election dominated by climate change and by differing proposals on how to tackle it. The Greens made history with almost 15% of the vote, even though it was well short of their ambitions.
It was the tightest race in years, bringing an end to the post-war domination of the two big parties – Mr Scholz’s SPD and his rival’s conservative Christian Democratic Union (CDU).

German election could lead to “collision” in coalition government
Germans take to the polls today to vote in their new Government. Popularity for Die Linke has been growing, many now think the far-left group could even form the next coalition Government. Why do they want to scrap NATO and what could this mean for the west’s security?
Die Linke has publicly called for the NATO alliance to be scrapped.
Its election campaign has centred around this and on reforming social care.
The party may have no realistic chance of winning the elations, but many think they could be asked to form a left-wing coalition.
If they are asked to help form the next government with the SPD, they will have serious influence over Germany’s defence policies.
This may yet be another blow to the NATO alliance. Germany and France could well be the 2 members of the EU who lead the EU away from NATO.
The Bible has long revealed that Russia and an EU Army will enter a final conflict with Israel and the Middle East. Germany is the key country in what Bible Prophecy refers to as the land of “Magog”. They are spoken of militarily as the “King of the North”. Together the Bible says that Russia and the EU will invade the Middle East in the Last Days. So Bible Students expect to see Germany and France taking a greater role in leading Europe. It is also interesting to see Germany taking greater control of a continent they tried to take by war and failed.
