German Chancellor In Serious Political Dilemma

Published

Chancellor Angela Merkel appears to be the biggest loser as parties pulled out of coalition talks to form a coalition government.
There are palpable fears in the political circle in Germany after talks to form a coalition government among four of the country’s seven parliamentary political parties collapsed shortly before midnight on Sunday.
Chancellor Angela Merkel appeared to be the biggest loser as parties pulled out of coalition talks.
Reports quoted Merkel as saying early Monday that the Free Democratic Party (FDP) had pulled out of talks with her Christian Democratic Party (CDU) the previous day.
While Merkel said she regretted the collapse of talks to form a government, she said she would steer Europe’s biggest economy through the crisis.
 
“As chancellor, I will do everything to ensure that this country comes out well through this difficult time,” she said.
The German Chancellor’s center-right CDU lost 65 seats in September’s general election, preventing it from forming an outright majority, despite remaining the largest party in the German parliament, the Bundestag.
There had been hopes for a ‘Jamaica coalition’ — so called due to the parties’ colours mirroring that of the Jamaican flag — that combined Merkel’s CDU and its Bavarian sister party, the Christian Social Union (CSU), both black, the pro-business FDP, which are yellow, and Germany’s Greens party.
But according to Germany public broadcaster ARD, the parties were deeply divided over tax, immigration quotas and environmental policies.

“There’s the urge to have that close nuclear family unit and then there’s the reality; it’s not that easy having another child and building a new home. I’ve heard from other people’s experiences too. Somehow, I’ve been able to manage all these years with my daughter.

I am proud of her; she’s in secondary school now. I just want to work on giving her the best. I won’t say that I am using torchlight to look for a family now, but if it does happen, I’ll embrace it with all of me. But the reality of it is that, it’s not as beautiful as it sounds,” she said.
