The ban on the SA and SS was immediately lifted, and the Reichstag was dissolved with new elections called for in July. Immediately violence erupted on the streets of Germany. Nazi brown shirts began campaigning on the streets, and intimidating political opponents. This violence culminated in Bloody Sunday. Nazis walked into a communist area near Hamburg and committed terrible acts of violence. Eventually, 19 were killed and 300 were injured.
Further elections were held in July in which the Nazis got 37 per cent of the vote and became the largest group in the Reichstag. What followed was a breakdown in the alliance between Hitler and Schleicher as Hitler used his success to demand the Chancellor ship and greater powers, a demand blocked by Schleicher. Further elections were held in September which led to the Nazis loosing 2 million votes, but the results were inconclusive and in November, Papen resigned, unable to form a workable coalition.
