I thought I'd make this more general than specific since a lot of things happen that would probably only be 3-4 posts but are non the less interesting. On that note, New Zealand is having elections in 2 months, we have the MMP system like Germany. Our current goverment is center right and has enough seats to rule alone and is polling that way now, with maybe needing a few seats from a small party to form goverment. Out left is in a shit show. The major left party is polling mid to low twenties, the Greens their usual allies are polling way up at 15, but that has all come at the cost of Labour making a very unhappy let. Add to that Labours leader just quit under pressure (he never should of had the job), all I can see happening is Labour grabbing a few votes off the Greens and not damaging the right. The greens are doing well because one of their two leaders admitted to lying to the goverment about her living conditions to get more welfare for years, and promising a massive welfare increase for everyone with no strings attached, currently you must seek work and take offered jobs. What the true problem of the left is, Labour and Greens must go together to have a chance of goverment, but many many labour voters (blue collar like my Dad) refuse to vote for any party who would work with the current Green party. Life long labour voters literally have no one to vote for. And our Trump-lite, New Zealand first is polling at 11 and we all hope like hell they arent the king maker. I wish we did what Germany did and do center left/right unity and have the Green lead the opposition. But i highly doubt that will happen.
