I was looking over the data for Sunday's election in Germany, especially the results in Saxony. If I'm reading the results right (my 9th grade German class is way too rusty to help much), there is a workable civilized coalition of the Christian Democrats, Social Democrats and the Greens, getting 30, 11 and 5 seats respectively, adding up to 46 seats out of 87. The communist Left ("die Linke" in German) and the anti-immigrant AfD got 17 and 24 respectively.
The Greens had 5.19% of the vote, just above the 5% threshold for seats. Had they been at 4.99%, we would have been looking at a 41-41 dead heat or something close to it, depending on how the proportional-seat math played out with one less player. That would have meant cooperating with one of the parties that are persona-non-grata in coalition building in most cases. The AfD is truly on that list and I don't recall "Die Linke" being in government at the state level, even in eastern Germany where they have some residual support from the old days.
Saxony just missed a hung parliament by 0.19%
