The result was a coalition between the CDU and FDP because of the horrible german electoral system: Overhang seats
*: In german elections a party needs to achieve at least 5% to enter a parliament. The only parties that are excluded from this rule are parties of national minorities. Such as the danes, frisians and sorbs.

I guess I'm the only one here who'd take offence at the fact that a party will lead the new government that actually didn't got the largest share of votes?
Oh boy, and don't get me started on the Pirates. An unconditional basic income? Free public transportation and the freedom to download at no charge whatever you fancy?
