GERMAN Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic (CDU) party are facing heavy defeats in a state that is being tipped as a key indicator in the national elections.

The German Chancellor is currently in Rome and met with the Pope yesterday ahead of the state election in Saarland tomorrow.

Saarland is a majority catholic German state and has been run by Mrs Merkel’s party for the last 18 years.

However voters are expected to reject the Chancellor’s policies amid claims former EU president Martin Schulz’s Social Democrats (SDP) will throw Mrs Merkel’s party out of power.

Polls are indicating a major defeat with the latest data on the national elections showing the majority of Germans would prefer Schulz’s to take over after Merkel’s 12 year reign.

A Deutschland poll found yesterday that 45 per cent of interviewees want a new federal government formed by Mr Schulz.

Saarland is a forested, southwestern German state bordered by France and Luxembourg.
