Guests of the German embassy in Armenia followed the elections to  the Bundestag in  live mode. 

ArmInfo. Several hundred people specially invited guests of the German embassy in Armenia  yesterday got an option to monitor the elections in the Federal Republic of  Germany in the Bundestag in the diplomatic representation building  and  to receive comments on what is happening from  the first person  of the embassy: German Ambassador Bernhard Matthias Kiesler.

The invitees were first suggested to "play ahead of time" - to share  on their specially prepared forms their forecast of the forthcoming  election results. Despite the fact that the official forecasts were  slightly different from the final preliminary results, however, three  guests - young people - in their guesses were pretty close to the  results and received symbolic gifts from the Ambassador at the end of  the evening.

The fact that the "Christian Democratic Union" Angela Merkel will  lead the elections to the German parliament, perhaps no one doubted,  but 33% of the votes were the worst result for the party since 1949.   The Social Democratic Party of Germany headed by Martin Schultz  received slightly more than 20%, but here it stated that it will not  participate in the coalition and intends to withdraw to the  opposition. 

The far-right party, of  Alternative for Germany (AdG), garnered by  13% of the votes, has become sensational, which advocates tightening  of migration policy and rejection of the euro. In total, the  Bundestag hosted six parties, including the Free Democratic Party  (FDP), the Left and the Greens.  Following the election results, a  new government of Germany will be formed.
