Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
We had an open thread on these three elections. The greens gained a bit in the parliament in Saxony. More notable was that they got into the parliament in Thuringia. They're getting closer to regaining representation across all states (only Rhineland-Palatinate, Saxony Anhalt and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern left to take).

The left party held stable in Saxony and Thuringia, they only had gains in Saarland.

After these state elections, there were two more on the day of the federal elections -- in Brandenburg and Schleswig-Holstein. In Brandenburg the greens (and FDP) got into the parliament, and the left held steady. In Schleswig-Holstein the left got into parliament and the greens gained a lot - but their gains were proportional to the SPD's losses.
