All eyes are on Berlin this week as Germans vote on a new government on Sunday (26 September). The final result is difficult to predict but the new government will be one without Chancellor Angela Merkel, who has been in power for 16 years and will step down from politics altogether.
This week’s Beyond the Byline podcast takes us to Germany with a special episode focusing on the possible political changes in the EU’s biggest country and their possible impact on EU affairs. To shed some light on the upcoming elections, the electorate’s behaviour, and the exit polls I was joined by Oliver Noyan from EURACTIV Germany.
We also spoke with Tobias Schminke from Europe Elects, EURACTIV’s partner to discuss the reliability of polling and whether we are up for surprises during the election night.
