11:06 : Hello @Deutsch. The first results will fall around 6 p.m., after the polling stations close, and should be final overnight. On the other hand, we will have to wait to know the future coalition since it will require long negotiations. As my colleague Valentine Pasquesoone explains in this article, the government resulting from the 2017 elections was not formed until March 2018.

09:31 : Hello, at what time will we know the results of the federal elections in Germany? And when will the future chancellor be elected?
