Germany votes – The winners and the losers | DW Documentary

Germany is to get a new parliament – and a new chancellor. After 16 years, Angela Merkel is stepping down. Three candidates have spent months fighting to succeed her. Filmmaker Stephan Lamby followed their campaigns. Which one was most effective?

Olaf Scholz, Annalena Baerbock and Armin Laschet found themselves locked in an increasingly tight race to win over voters for their parties and policies. We look at how the candidates and campaigns revamped their image and their manifestos in the ten months before the federal election. A hard-fought process that we get to watch close-up, against a backdrop of dramatic events that have shaped the past year.
