The German Greens doubled their score in the European Parliament elections on Sunday, coming in second behind the conservatives of the CDU / CSU in a vote marked by the collapse of the social democratic left.
With 22% of the vote, the ecologist Party is the first rival of the party of Chancellor Angela Merkel and her Bavarian allies, who certainly finish in the lead with 28% but are down eight points compared to the European elections of 2014 .
The fall is even more severe for their partners in the government coalition, the Social Democrats of the SPD, who lose 12 points to 15.5%.
The anti-immigration alternative party for Germany (AfD, extreme right) earns for its part nearly 3.5 points but it caps at 10.5%.
