Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservative allies in Bavaria have had their worst election performance for more than 60 years securing just 37.3 percent of the vote in a huge blow to her fragile three-party coalition government.

In a scathing tweet, Italian deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini claimed the electoral blow to Mrs Merkel’s government showed “the old system had lost” and praised electoral gains by anti-immigration party Alternative for Germany.

Mr Salvini said: “In Bavaria change has won and the European Union, the old system that has always been poor in Brussels, has lost. This was a historical defeat for Christian Democrats and Socialists, while for the first time many of the AFD friends are entering the Regional Parliament.

“Goodbye Merkel, Schultz and Juncker.”

Ms Merkel’s conservative allies in Bavaria have had their worst election performance for more than 60 years sparking calls for “something to change” from her Social Democrats coalition partner and claims of an “end of an era” for the leader.

The Christian Social Union (CSU) secured just 37.3 percent of the vote, which is expected to deal a blow to her fragile three-party coalition government.

The results reveal that the Greens have won 17.8 percent of the vote and the Conservative Free Voters have won 11 percent of the vote.

The Social Democrats (SPD) leader Andrea Nahles said that the “poor performance” of the federal government in Berlin was one of the reasons for her party’s weak showing in Bavaria.
