Sept. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg's David Tweed reports on this weekend's Bavarian election that doesn't even have Angela Merkel's CDU party. He speaks with Mark Barton on Bloomberg Television's "Countdown." (Source: Bloomberg)

This is unusual compared to the rest of germany.

This is a completely different animal.

It is not even have angela merkel's christian democratic union.

It has a sister party, the christian social union.

That is not the only difference.

Bavaria is a huge independent state.

It has the biggest territory of all of the german states.

It is home to companies like bmw, siemens, the backbone of the middle standards . this is bigger than the entire economy of poland or austria.

The other thing is that it looks like the csu will be able to come back in bavaria and rule on its own.

That is if the voting goes according to the polls.

Of the book so strong, why is this an election that they will be looking at?

They are really all about what is the coalition going to look like.

Angela merkel would like to carry on a very similar coalition structure to the one it has right now.

You could see tactical voting which might change the way the whole coalition looks.
