Munich (dpa) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel has declined to comment on whether a state election in Bavaria on Sunday could destabilize her government.

According to recent polls, Merkel‘s Bavarian sister party, the arch-conservative Christian Social Union (CSU), could lose its dominant position in the state due partly to a surge in support for the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party.

Asked whether this could destabilize her coalition - which is made up of her conservative CDU, the CSU and the centre-left SPD - Merkel said: "I can only say that I am hoping for a good result for the CSU."

"I am aware that we are living in difficult times - other than that, I am waiting for the result," she said.
