SPD lose in NRW

A bad day for the SPD Green coalition in Germany's most populated state.

Hannelore Kraft has conceded and the CDU will be the new force in Nordrhein Westfalen.

The right-wing AfD won over five per cent of the vote so they will be in the new parliament in Dusseldorf.

The Left Party hovers at 4.9 per cent and still hopes to cross the five per cent hurdle.

It's more good news for the CDU and strengthens Angela Merkel's chances of winning the federal elections in September.
