Issues and campaign

Results

Seat results -- SPD in red, CSU in black, Greens in green

Post-election

  • The CSU was once again able to form a government without coalition partners, as it had been able to do in Bavaria since 1962.
  • The CSU's winning of over 2/3 of the seats in the new Landtag was the strongest showing for any party in German electoral history. No party had ever been able to form a super-majority of over 2/3 of the seats in any Landtag before or since.
  • In the years that followed this electoral triumph, lethargy—perhaps induced partly by so many years of one-party rule—set in. The CSU became ever more unpopular, until the next election in 2008, wherein its support plummeted.
