Poll boost for German far right

#1
Early results in German regional polls show the far right has won seats in an eastern state and Chancellor Angela Merkel's party has performed poorly.
The far right National Democratic Party (NPD) won about 7% in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania - with 5% needed to enter parliament.

The previous government compared the NPD to the early Nazi party.

The polls also showed Mrs Merkel's Christian Democrat (CDU) party trailing rival parties in Berlin.

Early results gave the NPD between 7.1% and 7.3% in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.
