  •  Not SPD, the FDP went under the 5% (7+ / 0-)

    and lost their coalition standing with the CDU/CSU. Merkel has said she will more than likely form a coalition with the Reds (SPD) but will wait for things to settle out.  There was some trepidation (?) that she would be able to run the Parliament with a majority, but that seems unlikely. Their is even an outside chance that the other parties could eke out a small percentage win for a large coalition win, but I don't think they want to do it. Not entirely sure, but I think I saw that breakdown before I went to bed last night. (We're 7 or 8 hours ahead over here.)
