Two extremist parties in former East Germany qualified for representation in state Parliaments. On Sunday, for the first time since 1968, the extreme right-wing National Democratic Party won seats in a state Parliament. With 9.2 percent of the vote in Saxony, the party crossed the necessary 5 percent threshold. A like-minded party, the German People’s Union won 6.1 percent in Brandenburg.
