Martin Schulz is the Social Democratic party's candidate for German chancellor. His campaign has inspired the party rank-and-file. Now, it seems that the SPD will give the Christian Democrat chancellor, Angela Merkel, a run for her money.
Here's a look at Germany's political parties, who they are and what they want.
Germany's Social Democrats have adopted policies they want to campaign on in EU parliamentary elections in May. But polling suggests voters won't be very kind to Germany's biggest center-left party.
Germany's Christian conservative parties have presented their joint vision for Europe ahead of May's election. While the CDU and CSU are against a European Finance Ministry, they do want a "European FBI."
A new ARD Deutschlandtrend poll shows most voters feel Merkel's party has been successful in pushing its agenda. A majority also say Germany should use its budget surplus to invest in the future.
