8 years ago75 views

Some 55,000 Germans living abroad have registered to vote,and increasingly politicians are paying visits to woo these voters. This summer the Social Democrats' Ulla Schmidt did some campaigning amongst the 60,000 Germans living in Alicante,on the Spanish Costa Blanca.Her visit ended in scandal,after her official car was stolen there. We also paid a visit to Germans living in Spain to see how they view Germany's two main parties -- the Social Democrats and the Christian Democrats.
