The race to be ‘kingmaker’ is heating up in Germany’s federal elections. With the centre-right CDU and centre-left SPD all but guaranteed to take first and second place, the smaller parties are jostling for a place in any likely coalition government.

Current polling suggests another “grand coalition” of the CDU and the SPD, or a “Jamaican” coalition (named after the Black, Yellow and Green flag of Jamaica) with the CDU, the Greens, and the FDP. The Greens, however, are not exactly natural partners with conservatives or liberals (though there is a history of Green-CDU coalitions at state level).

The political parties in Germany have now all published their election manifestos for the upcoming Bundestag elections. We’ve taken a look at their policy programmes in detail and summarised the main points in the infographic for you below.

Today we’re looking at the manifesto of Alliance 90 / The Greens. In order to promote gender balance, they’ve put forward two joint candidates for chancellor: Katrin Göring-Eckardt and Cem Özdemir. But what do their party believe, and what sort of programme would they put in place if they won power?

    That one is easy, the eradication of the German people. They openly called for it in the parlament. They are very transparent.

      Does this count as the oldest/lamest joke on the internet? Or does the joke about Bielefeld still have the title?

      In the 1980’s the leaders of the German “Green Party” proposed decriminalization of pedophilia. The leader of the German and European “Green” Party movement, Daniel Cohn Bendit wrote about his sexual “play” with a five year old girl. Then in the 1990, the German “Green Party” demanded NATO intervention against Yugoslavia.

    Observed from Latin America: The leadership of the German “Green Party” are “partner$” of U.S. geopolitical operations for “humanitarian intervention by NATO”. To understand: Since U.S.Americans are too obvious, the U.S. uses German “activists” in Latin America, Asia and Africa: Preferably German false flag “leftists” as “eco-socialists” , and German “environmental activists”. The only nation that can afford to expose them credibly is India. Read: IB REPORT ON NGOS PDF . This is how German “activists”, especially “Greens” subvert against “independent” nations .
