German anti-EU party set for new election gain
The new anti-migrant and anti-EU Alternative for Germany (AfD) party could win 15 percent of votes at the Berlin state election on Sunday, according to the latest polls. The Social-Democrat party (SPD) leads the polls with 21 percent, ahead of chancellor Merkel's Christan Democrats (CDU) with 19 percent. Both parties are losing ground. Last Sunday, AfD came second ahead of the CDU at an election in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern with 21 percent.
