German anti-euro party set to debut in state parliament


BERLIN: Germany’s fledgling anti-euro party looks set to win its first seats in a state parliament on Sunday, gaining a political foothold in opposition to Chancellor Angela Merkel’s grip on power. Voters in eastern Saxony state will be the first to vote in regional legislative elections since Merkel’s triumphant return for a third stint at the helm of Europe’s top economy in last September’s general election. Her conservative Christian Democrats (CDU) have been in power in Saxony since Germany’s 1990 reunification and are expected to remain dominant, but the party will likely need a new coalition partner.
