Elected Minister-President

Volker Bouffier
CDU

A state election was held in Hesse on 22 September 2013, coinciding with the 2013 federal election.

On 8 February 2013, Minister-President Volker Bouffier agreed to the proposal of the President Joachim Gauck to hold the state elections on the same day as Germany's federal elections. The official result gave no major parties and their traditional coalition partners a clear majority in the parliament. On 17 December, the CDU and the Greens announced a tentative coalition agreement, which was confirmed on 21 December,[1] creating the second CDU-Green coalition to govern a German state, after the previous government of Hamburg.
