  • Description

    The governing Christian Democratic Party remained firmly in power after voting in two states of West Germany yesterday (Sunday). Polling was carried on in Schleswig-Holstein and Rhineland Palatinate.

    The results came as something of a set-back for the extreme right-wing National Democratic Party. Although the National Democratic Party gained seats in each state parliament, they fell well short of pre-election predictions.

    Previous election successes for the right-wing party had aroused fears of a neo-Nazi revival in Germany. The National Democratic Party want an end to war crimes trials, and have called for a new German national awareness.

    The Christian Democrats improved their standing in both electorates -- in Rhineland Palatinate they raised their share of voting from 44.4 per cent to 46.7 per cent, and in Schleswig-Holstein from 45 to 46 per cent.
