According to preliminary results of the vote, the representative of the Green Party, Tessa Ganserer, will enter the German parliament. She will become the first transgender woman in the Bundestag.

According to the Bayerischer Rundfunk TV company, in her district in Bavaria, Ganserer won 23.6% of the vote. According to BR, if she does not receive a direct mandate, she will still go to parliament on party lists.

“I am very glad that I will contribute to the promotion of my themes in the next four years also in the German Bundestag”, - the candidate said in an interview.

Ganserer, who is a member of the regional parliament - the Bavarian Landtag, is going to advocate for the climate, as well as fight for the breakthrough of representatives of the LGBT community.

Let us remind you that the Social Democrats won the elections to the Bundestag. And the current German Chancellor Angela Merkel received the lowest level of support in history.
