German Economy Minister Roesler addresses the media after the Free Democrats (FDP) party meeting to discuss yesterday's city state election in Berlin

German Economy Minister Philipp Roesler addresses the media after the Free Democrats (FDP) party meeting to discuss yesterday's city state election in Berlin, September 19, 2011. Germany's Social Democrats beat Angela Merkel's conservatives in a regional vote in Berlin on Sunday, handing the chancellor her sixth election defeat this year ahead of a key euro zone vote in parliament in two weeks' time. Merkel's centre-right coalition suffered a further setback when their junior coalition partners at the national level, the Free Democrats (FDP), failed to clear the five percent threshold needed to win seats - for the fifth time this year. The beleaguered FDP, which had attempted to attract voters in Berlin with its increasingly euro-sceptic tactics, plunged to 1.8 percent from 7.6 percent in 2006, preliminary results showed.
