Social Democrat (SPD) Chancellor Olaf Soltz is confident his party will win Sunday's federal election.
"I am convinced that we will succeed in the elections. All the polls reflected what I also felt in the rallies: that there is a large current to the SPD. "I am convinced that the people will give me the mandate to form the next government," he told Bild.
Solz is not intimidated by polls that show the SPD's lead over the Christian Democrats and the Christian Socialists (CDU / CSU) is declining: the SPD is continuous. That is why I am very sure about Sunday ".
