FDP returns to regional parliament of Bavaria

Voters in Bavaria, in the south of Germany, went to the polls on Sunday. The results showed that the two people’s parties lost heavily. The governing Christian-democratic CSU, only for the second time in its 60-year history, lost its absolute majority. The social-democratic SPD was halved and ended below 10% of the votes.

ALDE member FDP increased its support and managed to re-enter the regional parliament again with just over 5% of the votes. FDP won 11 seats in the Bavarian parliament.

On Sunday night, FDP leader Christian Lindner said: “Bavaria has always been a difficult region for liberals. Today, following an exciting campaign, we can see optimistically towards the future. We are now represented again in ten regional parliaments. That is a success.”
