Final Germany Election Results

September 28th, 2009 at 8:37 pm by David Farrar

The final resuts:

  • CDU 194 (+14)
  • CSU 45 (-1)
  • FDP 93 (+32)
  • SDP 146 (-76)
  • Greens 68 (+17)
  • The Left 76 (+22)

The three CR parties have 332 seats and you need 312 to govern so a comfortable majority.

The German Pirate Party got a respectable 845,904 votes which is 2% of the vote.

I was thinking that it is probably after next years UK elections we will have CR Governments in UK, France, , Canada, Italy and NZ. Not bad.

    Spain will likely tip into the column, considering it’s now projected to go into depression.

    I think that’s not a relevant distinction anymore though… It’s probably time that we start looking at the second dimension of the political spectrum, i.e. authoritarianism and statism vs individualism and individual rights and responsibilities.

    On that second spectrum we haven’t seen any changes, but a continual increase of the state in all its manifestations. While ‘CR’ governments are in power this may grow slower and perhaps less profound, but it has been growing.

    It’s time for a new paradigm, the old one has served its purpose………………

    What about Portugal, they had an election today too? Japan lost its CR govt last week also. And Norway two weeks ago?
    The recession cuts both ways.
    Having said that, full credit to Merkel for doing so well in the middle of a recession, the MMP system delivered an interesting mix of both major parties being in coalition, this could happen in NZ one day- which would be no less contradictory than some of the coalition arrangements we have seen before.

    Very bad news. Good Green numbers though.

    Portugal is insignificant (besides, they’ve been socialist since the coup in the 1970s). So is Norway. We’ve already talked about Japan and how much of a disaster it will be for them.

    At least Norway can AFFORD a centre-left Government. And so could Britain until Brown bankrupted the Treasury.

    Cameron will win in the UK. We will have to wait and see if we get a centre right government!

    Yes, it’s interesting how the USA has shifted to the left and Europe has shifted to the right.

    Though, Japan has recently gone left… and obviously K Rudd in Australia is left.

    Japan has recently gone left

    Japan has just elected its first left government in approximately 50 years. It might be considered a tad hasty to add their name to the column of enlightened and glorious socialist paradises

    Agreed.

    Tough to be centre right in Australia at the mo. Every state and the federal govt. are all Labour.

    I have no problem with Japan going left
    53 years from now I might be willing to tolerate Labour getting back in power again.

    Well according to Panorama on the BBC tonight, if the Conservatives want to reduce the Government deficit they will need to shrink the size of the state in the UK by 12%. Bring it on I say.

    The programme looked at what the Canadian Government did in the 90′s to get themselves out of near bankruptcy by reducing the size of the state. They did some really positive things like reduce the number of state employees by 20%.

    After the socialists attempted seizure of power in Canada late last year, they won’t be going anywhere near power soon. As for Greece, the scumbag anarchists have got their hands well into them, just a pity we couldn’t take care of them sooner.

    Italy isn’t lucky to have its current government, in fact its mere existence demonstrates the absolute failings of the Italian political system and electorate to get to grips with what ails Italy.

    France’s centre right government is more leftwing than New Labour in the UK.
