Although five parties are currently represented in Germany’s Bundestag, or parliament, a few dozen smaller parties are hoping to win seats in federal elections on September 22.
For most of these parties, that seems like a near impossibility, as they must take home at least five percent of the vote in order to enter the Bundestag.
Nevertheless, two of them – Alternative for Germany, which opposes Germany’s membership in the eurozone; and the Pirate Party, which stands for internet freedoms – have an outside chance at breaking the five-percent hurdle.
Roll your mouse over the logos below to explore the positions and history of the 34 parties that are competing in the elections. The top seven logos’ sizes vary based on the support the parties are drawing in public opinion polls.
