The left-wing parties are the victors in the Reichstag elections. The SPD leads the way; with 29.8% of the vote, it is clearly the largest group in the Reichstag. The KPD (10.6%) also manages to reach out to a wider electorate. By contrast, the share of votes cast for the DNVP noticeably decreases from 20.5% to 14.3%. But also the Center Party and liberal parties suffer significant losses. The NSDAP is represented in the Reichstag with just 2.6% of the vote.
