Commenting on the results, which mean far-right party Alternative fur Deutschland (AfD) will enter parliament for the first time in its... Еще history, Seehofer said that it «was a very difficult evening, there is no argument about this, it will simply be bad to see what consequences come with it», before stressing that there is “a deep divide in the country and our aim is to overcome this divide.” However, he explained that the nature of the CDU/CSU partnership is the most pressing priority, echoing Chancellor Angela Merkel's vision of recouping ballots from AfD voters.
