Polls open in German general elections

TEHRAN (FNA)- Germans are making their way to the polls to begin voting in the country’s elections.

Current Chancellor Angela Merkel is slated to win the elections for a third term in power, according to polls, RT reported.

However, the Free Democrats party, that form part of Merkel’s coalition government, may not gain the 5 percent vote required to win seats in parliament. This would force Merkel into forming an alliance with her political rival, Peer Steinbrueck’s Social Democrats.
