I guess a CDU-SPD alliance again is on the table with SPD taking the lead.
Aren't they polar in policy though? Perhaps had the CDU won maybe. I expect to see a Green, SPD and FDP coalition. But I don't know enough of this election to make a concrete prediction.
Having said that, Social Democracy is Centre Left surely. Isn't the Left either meant to be Marxism, Leninism or extreme SJWness depending on how pink your knickers are?
