CDU leader Armin Laschet (right) is Angela Merkel’s favorite successor, but his leadership has suffered several setbacks.

An era that has lasted 16 years is about to come to an end in Germany.

This Sunday, September 26, federal elections are held that will mark the end of Angela Merkel at the head of the government.

And for the first time in 15 years, an opinion poll earlier this month gave the center left an advantage on the Chancellor’s Conservatives.

Among all the uncertainty that election results bring, only one thing is clear: whoever wins will have to form a coalition government.
