BERLIN, GERMANY - MARCH 27: German Chancellor and Chairwoman of the German Christian Democrats (CDU) Angela Merkel (R) and CDU Saarland lead candidate Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer smile as they depart after speaking to the media at CDU headquarters the day after state elections in Saarland gave the CDU a clear victory on March 27, 2017 in Berlin, Germany. Polls had predicted a neck-and-neck race against the Social Democrats (SPD), though the end result gave the CDU a 10-point lead in what is also fresh wind in Merkel\'s bid for another term as chancellor in national elections scheduled for September.
