On 26 September, Germans will head to the polls for the first federal election of the post-Merkel era. Just weeks away, the race for her succession is still very much open. Following a sharp rise in the last few weeks, the Social Democrats (SPD) are now leading the polls, ahead of the CDU/CSU and the Greens. But with no party clearly ahead and many Germans still undecided, it is impossible to predict which coalition will lead Germany in the post-Merkel era and who might be the new Chancellor.

At this online EPC Elections Monitor, speakers will analyse the results of the election, what that means for the process of forming a new federal government, and the potential implications for the EU. They will also assess what kind of government coalition is likely to emerge from the upcoming negotiations, who will succeed Chancellor Merkel, and how this could affect Germany’s role in Europe and the world.
