German election exit polls place Social Democrats narrowly ahead – BBC News

Exit polls suggest the tightest of races in the German election with little separating the two main parties in the race to succeed Angela Merkel.

The latest projections show her party, the centre-right Christian Democrats led by Armin Laschet, is narrowly trailing the centre-left Social Democrats led by Olaf Scholz.

Whatever the outcome and whichever is the largest party, coalition talks are likely to take weeks or even months to form a government.
