The CDU and SPD are hoping for the office of Prime Minister.

When will forecasts and projections for the state elections in North Rhine-Westphalia come out?

  • North Rhine-Westphalia decides on a new state parliament.

  • The CDU and SPD hope to be able to appoint the prime minister in the future.

  • When will the forecasts and projections for the state elections in North Rhine-Westphalia be available?

Düsseldorf – After the state elections are before the state elections: on May 15, 2022, the people of North Rhine-Westphalia will vote for a new state parliament.

A week earlier, the CDU had won a clear victory in Schleswig-Holstein.

Nevertheless, SPD party leader Lars Klingbeil is confident of victory.

"I'm also quite sure that Thomas Kutschaty will ultimately become the next prime minister in North Rhine-Westphalia," explained Klingbeil on Monday (May 9, 2022).

He attributed the defeat in Schleswig-Holstein to a state-specific constellation.

The polls before the NRW elections confirm Klingbeil's optimism.

According to a ZDF survey from May 6, 2022 shortly before the election, the SPD is only two percentage points behind the CDU (30 percent) with 28 percent.

Due to the strong performance of the Greens (18 percent), a red-green coalition is currently also possible.

Mathematically, this is more likely than an alliance between the Union and the Greens.

After the election victory in Schleswig-Holstein, the CDU, just leading in the polls, sees a tailwind ahead of the state elections in North Rhine-Westphalia.

And people also appreciate good government work that ensures more security, a modern economy and secure jobs," said North Rhine-Westphalia's acting Prime Minister Hendrik Wüst (CDU) on Monday (May 9, 2022).

From 6 p.m. the first forecasts and projections for the state elections in North Rhine-Westphalia will also be published.

The forecasts are based on so-called exit polls, i.e. anonymous surveys in front of representative polling stations.

The results of the extrapolations, on the other hand, include the first counted constituencies, which are extrapolated to the whole of North Rhine-Westphalia.

As the evening progresses, they become more and more meaningful and come closer and closer to the actual results.
