German expatriates watch election from afar

Worldfocus producer Channtal Fleischfresser attended a German election party at the German Consulate in New York on Sunday and watched the results come in.

The event featured a panel discussion moderated by Garrick Utley, Chairman of the American Council on Germany, and featured panelists Klaus Peter Siegloch, bureau chief of ZDF German Television, Nikolaus Piper, Senior Correspondent for the Sueddeutsche Zeitung, and Cathleen Fisher, PhD, of George Washington University.

Though the election results were expected, observers said the record low turnout suggests dissatisfaction with the current options in German politics.
