FDP scored its best ever result ever in Germany’s most populous state of North Rhine-Westfalia with 12.6% in last Sunday’s regional elections. This great result just comes one week after the successful elections in the norther state of Schleswig-Holstein.
If German Liberals can push for their agenda for educational reforms, push for better infrastructure, advance the digital agenda and a functioning rule of law, FDP will join a possible government coalition.
This strong result is also an important signal nation-wide ahead of the federal elections on 24 September 2017. European Liberals are confident that a strong liberal voice will return to the German Parliament and will thus strengthen ALDE Party as a whole.
