The polls have closed and the projected results are in. Angela Merkel’s party won, but lost ground, as did her coalition partner Martin Schultz, from the left-center Social Democratic Party. Schultz announced that the four-year coalition between the Social Democrats and Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) is over. The far right AfD gained a lot of ground and came in a solid third. They will be seated in the Bundestag for the first time, something that does not sit well with many Germans. But hey, this is not a Brexit outcome, and it is not a Trump-like victory: so, good.
