    CDU made a GAIN from Linke in Berlin. They are going under. May finish with just one seat. Quite a curious one this.
    First vote went CDU, Linke, AfD, SPD.
    Second votes went SPD, AfD, CDU, Linke.
    Much tactical voting.
  • Linke loses Berlin Marzahn – Hellersdorf to CDU

    EDIT Linke (NOT Greens) retain Berlin Treptow – Köpenick so now they have 2 constituency seats

    Die Linke you mean.
    Only third on the second vote though. They are the night's really big losers.

    Their winner in Berlin Treptow – Köpenick is incumbent Gregor Gysi, who would I think be a positive addition, personally speaking, to any German government.
  • Die Linke retains Berlin - Lichtenberg so they've got 3 have at least that, plus over that hurdle IF they make 5% but as dixie says that's mighty shaky, now up to just 4.8% nationally

    Die Linke hold Berlin Lichtenberg putting them on 3. Vote down again.

    None of the opinion polls had Die Linke as low as this. Maybe there was a late swing from them to the SPD.

    According to the Economist, the Greens and the FDP have started talks with each other before they get involved with the larger parties.
