The German elections will take place on 24th of September, four years and two days after last general elections. Schools, municipal centres and or precincts will be open for voting between 8 in morning and six in afternoon.how many people vote?Around 61.5 million germans have right to vote. Of m, 31.7 million are women and 29,8 are men. The total figure represents almost 400,000 people less respect to 2013 elections. Three million young people will vote for first time. What do you choose?The germans elect deputies of lower House, or Bundestag. Germany is a representative democracy and, as in Spain, members are delegates of popular power in Parliament. According to Constitution, parliamentarians are not subject to orders or instructions, and "only due to ir conscience." How to vote?Each citizen has two votes. The first, with that chooses half of Parliament, is a direct election by simple majority of candidate of each constituency. There are 299 electoral districts, and refore 299 deputies direct. By second vote is to choose or half of Camera. This second vote decides majority in parliament through party lists in each state. That is to say, voters chose a closed list of party and its number of representative will be determined according to system of d'hondt. Voters can thus choose a local candidate of a party, and n vote to anor party at national level. How do I assign deputies additional?The German Bundestag has at least 598 deputies. The number is variable and depends on additional seats, a measure whose purpose is to maintain correlation of forces and that ultimately favours large parties. This increases complexity of system, because if a party gets more direct commands that that corresponds to him by second vote granted to respective county councils additional. This leads to unpredictable oscillations in Bundestag: according to some calculations, next election could leave you a Parliament with 700 members.How many games are re?In total, re are 42 parties, ranging from communists to neo-nazis of NDP, a party whose outlawry was rejected by German Constitutional Court in January in middle of a strong controversy. Between se extremes re are parties, vegans, satirical, animal protectors, a match for medical research, and even a tiny training independence of Bavaria. What are parties entering Bundestag?Only parties that obtained more than 5 percent of total ballots. This clause was introduced in 50's and is intended to prevent entry of minority groups and destabilizing, as happened in Weimar Republic prior to advent of nazism in 1933. But re are exceptions: rule is void when a party, not yet having surpassed this limit, is training prevailing in at least three electoral districts. Thus system provides for representation of groups that are strong in certain regions, as happened in 1994 with Party of Democratic Socialism (PDS), which acceded to Bundestag due to its good results in four districts of eastern Berlin. When did you form new Parliament?On 24th of October, just a month after elections. Below will take place -predictably - negotiations to form a coalition, followed by a vote by secret ballot to elect new chancellor. There is a time limit of two months to appeal results of elections. What matches are currently in place?The current Bundestag, which has 630 seats, is composed by 253 deputies of christian democratic Union (CDU), 56 Union Cristianosocial (CSU), 193 of social-democratic SPD, 64 Left, 63 for The Greens and one Independent.
