BERLIN, September 22 (Itar-Tass) - Christian Democratic Union /CDU/ and the Christian Social Union /SCU/, which are acting as a united bloc in Germany’s parliamentary election, received 42.3% votes in Sunday’s voting, experts monitoring the election told Channel One and Channel Two here.

The bloc’s main opponent, the Social Democratic Party managed to secure 26% votes. The Greens were getting 8.1% and the former pro-Communist Left Party, 8.3%

Experts also said that the Free Democratic Party did not get over the 5.0% qualification barrier and would not be represented in 18th convocation of the Bundestag. The exit polls showed that the recently formed Alternative for Germany party was close to the qualification barrier with 4.9% but its prospects were still unclear.

If the expert assessments prove correct, the CDU/CSU will likely get 303 seats in the Bundestag, with the Social Democrats bound to get 186, the Greens 58, and the Left Party 59 seats respectively.
