Germany's SPD slides in Bremen; jolt for Merkel coalition

Germany's SPD slides in Bremen; jolt for Merkel coalitionThe center-left Social Democratic Party (SPD) won only 24.5% of the Bremen vote, according to an exit poll on ARD television, down from 32.8% in 2015. Bremen is Germany's smallest state but second place represents a significant setback in the SPD's northern bastion. Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU) led in Bremen with 25.5%, the poll showed, leaving the Greens as potential kingmaker by virtue of an 18% share of the vote.

White House renews Trump's criticism of Biden from Tokyo

White House renews Trump's criticism of Biden from TokyoThe longtime Washington adage that politics should stop at the water's edge took a new beating over the weekend, as US President Donald Trump cited the North Korean dictator as agreeing with his own dim view of Democrat Joe Biden. A White House spokeswoman on Sunday brushed off criticism of Trump's remark and confirmed the two leaders' critical opinion of the former US vice president. Trump later corrected the spelling of Biden's name, but his reliance on a dictator's opinion to ambush a political foe from overseas drew sharp criticism from Biden's team and others.


German Greens leap in EU vote as left slumps

German Greens leap in EU vote as left slumpsAn exit poll in the European Union's biggest member state showed the Greens on 22%, Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU) and their conservative allies on 28%, down eight percentage points from 2014, and the SPD slumping nearly 12 points to 15.5%. The poll for public broadcaster ARD bore out predictions of a "green wave" that could push climate and environmental issues up the agenda in Brussels and bring the Greens into a possible four-party, pro-EU coalition at European level. On a night when German political attention was focused on the CDU's narrow defeat of Merkel's national coalition partner the SPD in the small city-state of Bremen, a left-wing bastion, the insurgent far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) raised its share of the EU vote by 3.4% to 10.5%.
