Germany's centre-left Social Democratic Party (SPD) experienced a bounce in the polls on Sunday, one week after selecting former EU Parliament president Martin Schulz to challenge Angela Merkel for the chancellorship in September‘s general election.

Berlin (dpa) - Support for the SPD jumped by six points to 29 per cent as compared to the previous week, according to Emnid poll for the Sunday edition of Bild newspaper.
Germanys centre-left SPD rise in polls after Merkel challenger named

With 33-per-cent support, Merkel‘s conservative Christian Democrats (CDU) saw their lead over the SPD shrink to just 4 points from 14 points one week ago.

The gap between the coalition partners was at its smallest in the weekly Emnid poll since July 2012 - one year year before the 2013 general election.

Germany‘s two main opposition parties also suffered as a result of the SPD bounce, with both the Greens and the hard-left Die Linke losing two points to achieve 8 per cent.
Support for the far-right populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) remained unchanged at 11 per cent, as did that of the market liberal Free Democrats (FDP) at 6 per cent. Neither party is currently represented in the national parliament.

Support for the far-right populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) remained unchanged at 11 per cent, as did that of the market liberal Free Democrats (FDP) at 6 per cent. Neither party is currently represented in the national parliament.

With a combined total of 45 per cent, a government made up of the SPD, Die Linke and the Greens is looking possible. The current government is a "grand coalition" of the SPD and conservatives.

Pollster Emnid questioned 2,233 voters between January 26 and February 2 about their general election choices.

Emnid also asked another 500 people on Thursday which of the two candidates they would prefer as chancellor. Forty-one per cent of respondents chose Merkel, ahead of 38 per cent for Schulz.
