Germany’s new parliament gains 83 lawmakers with migration background

Germany’s new Bundestag will be the most diverse parliament in recent history, with more representatives from different cultural and ethnic groups, according to a study by the Migration Media Service.

At least 83 lawmakers with migration backgrounds were elected on Sunday to the 735-seat parliament, marking a significant increase compared to the elections in 2017. At that time, 58 with migrant roots won seats in the Bundestag.

The center-left Social Democratic Party (SPD), which won the election against the Christian Democrats, has the highest number of MPs with migration backgrounds, followed by the environmentalist Greens and the Left Party.
