What’s the point of a party running with a list in the federal election if it cannot possibly pass the electoral threshold?
This question is about the German federal election.
Through a series of weird events, I learnt about the existence of a minor party called Magdeburger Gartenpartei, which apparently focusses only on the city of Magdeburg in the state of Sachsen-Anhalt.
This party is running for the German federal election 2017, however they are running per list (Landesliste) only in the state of Sachsen-Anhalt¹ and only have one candidate running for a direct mandate (Direktkandidat)².
For this election, this means that they cannot possibly get a seat by list, as this would mean that they have to surpass one of the following two electoral thresholds (Sperrklausel): 5 % of the proportional votes (Zweitstimmen).
This cannot happen since Sachsen-Anhalt only makes for 2.7 % of the German population.
Three direct mandates (Direktmandate).
This cannot happen since they are only running for one direct mandate. This poses three questions: Did I make any mistake in the above assessment?
For this party, what’s the point of running with a list?
For the electoral administration, what’s the rationale of admitting this list, when every vote for them has the same effect as an invalid vote? ¹ according to Wahlrecht.de
² according to the stastical office of Sachsen-Anhalt and assuming that they do not have direct candidates in other states
