German Pirate Party Scores More Seats In State Election

The Pirate Party continues its victory streak in Germany.

The Pirates got more than 8% of the vote in the Schleswig-Holstein state election yesterday, which translates into 6 seats.

berlinThis is the third time in a row the Pirate Party broke the 5% threshold which is needed to enter parliament.

Previously the Pirates won seats in Saarland and Berlin, and if the current trend continues the party has a serious shot at entering the national parliament after the next elections.
