Blogs are starting to emerge as from behind the shadows due to the forthcoming German Elections.

Germany statistically has one of the lowest number of blogs per head of population in Europe according to the last Blog Herald Blog Count in July, and notably lags behind its neighbours France and Poland.

Deutsche Welle reports that Germany is still “in the teething stages when it comes to political online journals” however a number of blogs are now starting to be heard, including kamikaze-demokratie.

    There are several blogs about the election.
    like http://bundestagswahl05.blog.de/ or http://www.wahl.de

    Just search for “Wahl” or “Bundestagswahl” in google.
    Even some parties are blogging. This is new to germany but very hot today.

    Regards,
    Markus (germany)

    Here in England we hear so little of the German election, and of the possible new Chancellor, Angela Merkel. Yet this could change the face of European politics. It would be great if some authoritative, English-language German blogs would give us the inside track.
