Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

It's actually the best result the Green Party EVER got in Germany. Impressive 37% in Bremen- Mitte. And with the left now in a Western parliament for the first time, we're moving to a 5-party-system.

A 5-party system wouldn't be a bad thing.

Depends on the parties involved. If it was the extreme right that came out this strong, I would be worried. But Lafontaine's Left becoming part of coalitions in the West (and de-radicalising itself in the process) would be a good thing.
I predict 20% for the Left in the next Saarland elections.
