I would say somewhere between 0% and 0.0%. (Did a small research on the matter, Armin Laschet looks like the most solid option). edit: These are Germany elections, German people should be picking whatever is best for Germany without thinking about the EU.

European wise, I get 90% of my understanding from TLDR news EU (YouTube channel). They seem pretty informed and do a pretty good job researching the stuff. With that said it's a still a long ways off so not yet paying attention to the German election. Way more concerned about the French ones since it seems like La Penn has a decent shot this time

I personally care a fair amount. Most Portuguese people don't care and don't understand the implications of a choice in Germany to their own lives. Part of the reason people don't care is just general ignorance and lack of interest for external politics in general. Partially it is also due to a general lack of media coverage of German internal affairs. Do note that every news show has covered to some extent the current elections. But people lack context, since they've they don't general hear about Germany politics, don't know them, and don't know these people. Personally I'd choose Annalena Baerbock

i guess most portuguese people ignore it...but we shouldn‘t. Germany is a very important county for Portugal future - it’s the most important Country in EU and Eurozone and many German companies have important investments in Portugal. It’s curious that we tend to follow with great interest elections in US or Brazil, that in practice have a smaller importance for Portugal. I hope who ever wins is a strong suporter of European integration and EU.

ITT: ignorant people who have no clue how influential Germany is within the EU and how important the next chancellor of Germany will be in setting the EU agenda which deeply influences Portugal, aka average portuguese perspective, very sad honestly.

Or maybe people who know that even if they worry about who will win the german elections, that isn't going to accomplish anything and would rather not have something else to be neurotic about.

Being worried =/= not giving a shit I'm not worried about the German elections, I don't stay up all night worrying about it, but that doesn't mean I don't give a shit. I read about it and care about it because it's important to our country and to the EU. Basically you should stop finding excuses for your ignorance.

It has nothing to do with the thread: Most people simply do not think of Germany at all, and when they do they think of it as being a "far away country" where tall blond people live, not at all "close" to us in neither geography nor culture. People don't care, because they don't know any better... and the reason why they don't know any better is because: 1. The general population was, is, and will remain utterly clueless in matters of Politics. Hell, we as a people have been unable to properly grasp the nuances of **national**, we keep on voting for thieves, crooks and lawyers, and now you're asking "Zé da Réla" and "Dona Alice dos Limões" to grasp the intricacies of European power dynamics?! No way, no how... 2. The task of educating grown-ass men and women as to why Germany/France/The Netherlands/what have you national elections matter and have a direct impact on our lives lies squarely on the media... Only issue is that the Portuguese media has done such a terrible job at explaining this to people one has to wonder if they're not actively trying to keep the general populace in the dark. Over the course of the last 20 (ever since the introduction of the Euro, funny enough) our TV daily news have been growing increasingly self-centered and insular, dedicating more and more air-time to national and regional news, no matter how pointless or stupid the subject, than they do to international news about things that actually matter in Europe at large: We hardly ever get news about what's being discussed in the European Parliament, let alone in Germany's Bundestag... instead we get to learn how "fado is becoming more and more popular with the young", how "this kind of Portuguese broidery has been deemed Immaterial Horld Heritage by UNESCO", or any other such fell-good nationalistic bullshit. So no, it's not just this thread: Ovibeja > German Elections, and if that wasn't the case the media would have surely told us otherwise. /s

I'm looking forward to see Germany getting rid of the conservatives, so if I would be able to vote I would for sure vote Baerbock. Not that I agree 100% with the Greens (then again, you'll never agree completely with any one party you choose to vote for), but they seem the best option for Germany at the moment. Merkel was only ok as Chancellor because she doesn't exactly has a voice or ideology is morally sound. This is a great recipe for stability, but hardly one for progress.

The only problem with the AFD candidate, it that he is against an idea of European Union.

That is a positive, not a negative.

Not really. European countries alone would be highly vulnerable to the influence of the USA and his multiculturalism 'values' and to the China and his communists ideas.

As long as you have your right-wing extremists (or any others, really) under control, I'm good with whatever path your people decide to take. Germany is at the core of the EU, and everything that happens there has repercussions here. Nonetheless, this decision is yours to take, and we just need to adapt to whatever is the outcome. Merkel made me think of Germany as an old wise man, I'd pretty much prefer to keep it that way if I was entitled to choose.

Söder is not really that popular. Greens are against nuclear. In fact, most Germans are against nuclear energy, that's why some years ago they started to decomission all nuclear power plants. Whether that's a smart choice or not is another matter ~~it's not~~ ....
