For the first time in Angela Merkel’s long political career, she becomes a burden for her own party and a factor of instability. This means that she will soon have to leave, and Germany in the next six months will be absent in the international arena.
The irreplaceable leader of Germany since 2005 and the head of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) Angela Merkel, after a series of failures, finally recognized her defeat, agreeing to hold new elections to the Bundestag after the failure of the CDU / CSU negotiations on the creation of a new ruling coalition with the liberals and the “Greens”.
In addition, the CDU lost important regional elections in Lower Saxony in October. Here, even Merkel had to admit that “the new elections (in the Bundestag) would be the best solution.” Before that, she admitted that she was “very skeptical” about the minority government since this can paralyze the authorities, because of the need to receive the approval of the parliament on all decisions taken. It is clear that one day the parliament will say no, which will be tantamount to a vote of no confidence.
Of course, Merkel, who reigned for 12 years, does not want such a finale.
At the same time, she rejects demands to resign. According to Merkel, “this issue can not be discussed,” because “Germany needs stability.”
However, in the coming days, at the meeting of the governing bodies of the CDU, this issue will certainly be discussed.
Merkel made many political mistakes. The last time – when she did not fulfill the instructions of President Frank-Walter Steinmeier to create a new government. Also, Germans cannot forgive her for flooding the country with “refugees”. Merkel has turned into a ballast, which pulls the whole party of Christian Democrats to the bottom. Their voters turn away from the party, voting either for the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD), or for the liberal Free Democratic Party (FDP).
The political situation in the country faced the crisis. The economy of the Federal Republic of Germany is jeopardized by the lack of political stability and the prospects for strengthening the position of the asystemic forces. The position of Germany as the leading country in Europe is under attack. Merkel has already begun to cancel negotiations with foreign leaders…
What to expect?
On November 26 Merkel will meet in Berlin with her closest associates in the party. The next day, as expected, will be an expanded meeting of the CDU, which will discuss the possibility of forming a minority government and the chances of avoiding re-elections to the Bundestag. And also, perhaps, the question of the party leadership will be raised.
The CDU can force Merkel to resign. Then, in place of the Chancellor, Christian Democrats will nominate another candidate, for example, Wolfgang Schaeuble, the former Minister of Finance. He is popular in Germany and was the second person in the party.
The Social Democrats will then decide to change their leader Martin Schultz to someone else, which will allow them to join the renewed government with another chancellor. But all this is difficult to foresee. In the meantime, one thing is certain – the large coalition that Merkel tried to form did not take place.
So we will soon find out whether Merkel’s destiny is different from Robert Mugabe, who was very much out of power in Zimbabwe. Countries, of course, are very different, but the situation is typologically the same: about how a politician must leave beautifully. Moreover, in gratitude for the numerous services rendered, the globalist elite is unlikely to forget about Merkel.
