As Angela Merkel steps down, the leader who replaces her will shape the future of Germany and Europe – and become one of the most influential voices in the world.

For this historic event, Berlin-based news agency Ruptly is offering first-class coverage of what will be a closely-fought contest.

Our news teams are reporting on every aspect of the election, from the campaign launches right up to election night when we’ll be live at the parties’ HQs as the results come in.

We’ll be following the candidates, covering the rallies and protests, speaking to voters in towns and cities around the country and documenting the reaction both in Germany and across the world.
