Both France and Germany are facing tough choices in 2017, will Angela Merkel who lost a great deal of her popularity retains her post, will the right be elected in France. Does the extreme right have any chance to win the elections; what about the left. Will immigration and terrorism dominate the outcome of the elections or the economy.

    More than 50 percent of the Germans want a law to prevent any Islamic dress in public place. It seems immigration, terrorism and religion will dominate the elections of France and Germany in 2017.

    for sure not any kind of left parties, and both French and German are afraid of extreme right since they directly think of Hitler.

    The first primaries are in French in November to designate the candidate of the Right; the 2 main candidates are Alain Juppe a former prime minister who was a follower of Jacque Chirac. Juppe is a moderate and is supported by Jacques Chirac. Sarkosy is more rightist and will impose a ban on the veil and he wants to lower taxes by many billions of euros and to abolish the 35 h. An outsider is Francois Fillon who was the PM of Sarkosy. The Socialists primaries are in December; the question is if the current unpopular president Hollande will run or not.

    Angela Merkel's ruling CDU party has been beaten into third place by an anti-immigrant and anti-Islam party in elections in a north-eastern German state.

    The Alternative fuer Deutschland (AfD) party took just under 21% of the vote behind the centre-left SPD's 30%.

    The German chancellor's CDU was backed by only 19% of voters, its worst ever result in the state.

    The vote was seen as a key test before German parliamentary elections in 2017.

    Before the vote in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania, in the former East Germany, all of Germany's other parties ruled out forming a governing coalition with the AfD. But the party, formed only three years ago, is already represented in nine of Germany's 16 state parliaments.


    One leading CDU politician called the result catastrophic, while another, Wolfgang Bosbach, said the arrival of hundreds of thousands of migrants without documents had "put the wind in the AfD's sails".

    Analysis: By Jenny Hill, BBC Berlin correspondent
    This is humiliating for Angela Merkel - not least because this was on home turf. Mrs Merkel's constituency is in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania.

    This election - which was seen as a significant test ahead of next year's general election - was all about her refugee policy. For a year she's insisted 'Wir schaffen es' (we can do it) but German voters aren't convinced.

    Alternative fuer Deutschland's anti immigrant and increasingly strident anti-Islam message has a powerful appeal to people concerned about integration and worried about domestic security.

    It doesn't look good for Mrs Merkel. Her approval ratings are at a five-year low. But don't be tempted to write her off just yet - she has a habit of bouncing back and there is no serious contender waiting in the wings to replace her.

    Under her leadership, Germany has been taking in large numbers of refugees and migrants - 1.1 million last year - and anti-immigrant feeling has increased.

    The AfD, initially an anti-euro party, has enjoyed a rapid rise as the party of choice for voters dismayed by Mrs Merkel's policy.

    But its political power is limited and critics accuse it of engaging in xenophobic scaremongering.
