Herr Schulz, Frau Merkel and the tiny state of Saarland

On Sunday, 26-March-2017, Saarland, Germany’s smallest state inhabited by only a million people elected their state parliament. Given the national elections scheduled for coming September, the regional elections prior to them are interpreted as important indicators. The regional election campaigns in the country’s province are joined by chancellery candidates of both major parties CDU and SPD fighting for the votes of the people and the tiny state of Saarland has set off the election season.
