Candidates in Germany's general elections wind up campaigning ahead of Sunday's vote.The CDU appeals to its supporters not to split their vote with the Free Democrats
Is Angela Merkel already under pressure less than a month after re-election? The German chancellor has fought back after her party's poor performance in Lower Saxony and the rise of a "new" conservatism in Austria.
The Christian Democrat premier of Saxony, Stanislaw Tillich, has resigned after an embarrassing showing by his party in last month's general election. The party came second to the far-right Alternative for Germany.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she was hoping for close cooperation in Europe with Sebastian Kurz, who led his conservative party to election victory in Austria. DW has reaction from Berlin and beyond.
The people wanted something new and that's what they'll get. Currently being negotiated in Berlin, the next government would take the country into uncharted waters. And that's a good thing, says DW's Jefferson Chase.
