CDU gains in Saarland

Gains for the CDU, SPD losses and the far-right AfD cross the five per cent line so enter the Saarland Parliament.

Outgoing CDU premier Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer will be in the lead position to form the new administration in Saarbrücken.

There was a larger than expected turnout for today's election.
