German election results evoke mixed reactions in Prague

Angela Merkel has won a fourth term as German Chancellor, but with her party's lead in parliament cut and the country facing a surge in support for the far right.

Merkel's conservative Christian Union (UDU/CSU) bloc, scored 32.9 per cent of the votes cast at the election, held on September 24, to clinch a record fourth tenure in office.

According to Politico, following their disastrous defeat, Germany's second party announced its intentions to leave the grand coalition and go into opposition.

AfD member Alice Weidel also said that the party would look into forming a committee to examine whether or not Ms Merkel had broken German laws during the height of the European migrant crisis back in 2015.

AfD, an anti-immigration far-right party along the lines of those gaining ground across Western Europe, is determined to test the laws by which refugees were allowed in.

The Kremlin is not commenting on the success of the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) Party in that country's parliamentary election since it is the German people's internal affair.

The far-right party capitalised on a nationalist backlash against Merkel's welcome for nearly 900,000 migrants and refugees in 2015, making it the focus of its party platform, the BBC says.

She said her party would speak to the liberal FDP and the Greens "but also the SPD, as we governed together for a long time and it's always important to keep talking".

Regarding possible coalition talks, co-leader Katrin Göring-Eckardt said "negotiations between these four parties will be tough". It will also be the third largest party, after the ruling CDU/CSU and SPD.

The World Jewish Congress called the AfD "a disgraceful reactionary movement which recalls the worst of Germany's past".

The relatively new comer, Alternative for Deutschland (AfD) won its first seats and is set to be the third party, a result that sparked some protests.

Merkel alluded to this on Sunday evening, saying that she would listen to those voters who had chosen the AfD instead.
