Exit polls show that there is a dead heat between the center-left SPD and the conservative CDU/CSU bloc. Both parties received 25% of the vote, according to exit polls.
The Greens received 15% of the vote, the Alternative for Germany (AfD) 11%, the pro-business Free Democrats (FDP) 11% and the Left party 5%.
Other parties 8%
If these results hold, then this opens a multitude of coaltion possibilities.
