Ever hear the expression: "Don't count your chickens before they're hatched"?
From what I read, not even the AfD really wants new elections now - even though
they would probably be one of the main winners.

Know of any country whose leadership behaves any differently? National leaders
aren't elected to further the interests of a union, any more that state
governers in the USA are elected to represent the interests of Washington,
rather than those of their native states.

Don't hold your breath.
