The Germans will vote on Sunday in a parliamentary election that will end Angela Merkel’s era.
Final opinion polls showed a close race between the center-left Social Democrats and the conservative CDU / CSU camp, which won four parliamentary elections in a row under Merkel.
The SPD’s Olaf Scholz and the CDU / CSU’s Armin Laschet are the leading candidates to succeed the veteran chancellor, who will not run for another term after 16 years in power.
However, Merkel may still exist for a while in a caretaker capacity, as opinion polls suggest that three parties – rather than the usual two – may have to agree on a coalition to have a majority in parliament.
