Germany: Local elections in Bavaria October 14

Germany News Alert

Bavarian state elections to be held on October 14; political rallies possible

TIMEFRAME expected from 10/12/2018, 12:00 AM until 10/14/2018, 11:59 PM (Europe/Berlin). COUNTRY/REGION Bavaria state (Germany)


Local elections will be held in Bavaria state on Sunday, October 14, to elect representatives to the state parliament. Political gatherings may occur in the run-up to the election and following the publication of election results. An increased security presence and localized traffic disruptions are to be expected near all election-related events and polling stations.


The Bavarian election is seen as a test for the ruling Christian Social Union (CSU), whose prime ministers have ruled the state since 1957. Recent polls indicate the CSU will likely lose roughly 10 percent of its seats in the parliament, with the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party surging to third place. Recent AfD election successes have resulted in clashes between its supporters and members of rival political parties and anti-far-right activists.


Individuals in Bavaria are advised to avoid potential protests, monitor developments to the situation, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
