Federal election 2021: A tight fit for the left - Wissler and Bartsch miss direct mandates

The left wins three direct mandates and moves safely into parliament. This means that the party will again be represented in parliamentary groups in the upcoming Bundestag - even if it fails to pass the five percent hurdle. The MPs Gregor Gysi and Gesine Lötzsch in Berlin and Sören Pellmann in Leipzig can defend their direct mandates.

Janine Wissler, the top candidate of Die Linke, has to fear that her party will enter parliament after the federal election in 2021. She missed out on a direct mandate. Dietmar Bartsch, top candidate of the left for the federal election in 2021, missed the direct mandate in constituency 14 Rostock - Rostock II district.
