Euro gaps lower as far-right AfD is Germany’s third biggest political force

Mrs Merkel's CDU/CSU alliance took 33% of the vote, well ahead of the second placed Social Democratic Party with 20.5% which would be its worst result since World War Two.

But in a major shock, the AfD took 12.6% support in Sunday's vote making it the country's third biggest political force says Sky News.
