BERLIN, Sept. 22 (Xinhua) -- The latest exit poll results showed Sunday that German Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservative Christian Democrats (CDU) and their Bavarian sister party the Christian Social Union (CSU) could have an absolute majority if the FDP and the AfD fail to enter the new parliament.
The poll by ARD television revealed that the CDU/CSU bloc secured 42.5 percent with 302 seats in a 598-seat lower house of the parliament without Merkel's current junior coalition partner Free Democrats (FDP) and the anti-euro Alternative for Germany (AfD).
According to the poll, the FDP failed to retain its seats in the parliament with a disappointing result of 4.6 percent of the votes, falling short of the 5-percent minimum threshold to enter the parliament. The AfD scored 4.9 percent.
It showed the largest opposition party the center-left Social Democrats (SPD) took 25.6 percent of votes. The Green party, the SPD's favored ally, captured 8.0 percent. The Left Party got 8.0 percent of votes.
Earlier, a smiling Merkel dressed in blue told chanting supporters in her party headquarters in Berlin that her party had won a "super victory".
"This is a super result," said Merkel."Tonight we could celebrate."
The latest results meant Merkel's conservative bloc could rule the country alone, which occurred only once in the Federal Republic's history under former chancellor Konrad Adenauer in 1957.
"We had expected more, the results are a big victory for the CDU/CSU," SPD's chairman Sigmar Gabriel said.
