Merkel allies win in Bavaria a week before German election

Published: 09.15.13, 23:43 / Israel News

Angela Merkel's allies swept to victory in a state election in Bavaria on Sunday, regaining the absolute assembly majority they lost in 2008 and providing a show of conservative strength for the chancellor a week before Germany goes to the polls.

 

The Christian Social Union (CSU), sister party of Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU), won 49% according to TV projections, putting them back more firmly in the saddle of the prosperous southern state they have governed for 56 years. (Reuters)
