The maintenance of stability and Bavaria's consistent development have been declared the central objective of the future Bavarian government.
On October 14, the German state of Bavaria held an election in the unicameral Landtag. As a result of the election, the CSU has lost the absolute majority in the state's legislative body and had to sign a coalition agreement with the Free Voters bloc. The two political forces have received a total of 112 seats in the Bavarian parliament.
