Merkel lonelier than ever
Rapporteur- Farbod Dehghani; Angela Merkel, who is making herself ready for the fourth Chancellor time, is left alone more than ever.
Merkel's policies, both within and outside Germany, failed and resulted in increasing public unsatisfied in German borders and being more away from foreign allies.
in internal scene, Merkel widely acceptance of asylum seekers without a comprehensive plan, which resulted to the German people's dissatisfaction and asylum seekers.
Following the massive presence of refugees, state aid is reduced so that asylum seekers are living in absolute poverty. In addition, their presence reduces job opportunities for Germans and as a result, the country's unemployment has been raised.
However, Merkel, who calls herself the protector of the people of Syria, has played a damaging role in Syrian crisis and intensification of it. This double edge game, caused a deep rift in Merkel's cabinet.
Frank-Walter Steinmeier, seeks to exacerbate disagreements with Merkel, resigned from his post and also his sharp criticism of the West was to blame for the crisis in Syria.
German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier confirmed that he was leaving his post, with his last meeting with a foreign minister of a different country taking place.
Steinmeier has been considered by Social
Democratic Party to be the best candidate for the German presidency.(1)
In Germany, the centre-left SPD has chosen Martin Schulz as its candidate in the battle to become the country’s next chancellor.
The former European Parliament President was unanimously chosen by the party’s executive committee on Sunday to run against Angela Merkel.
Schulz will take over from current leader Sigmar Gabriel in March. He stepped down last week saying Schulz had a better chance in the September vote.
Accepting the nomination in front of supporters, Schulz declared:
“Social democracy is about being fair to each other, hand in hand, side by side. In order to have the best for our country, we are seeking practical solutions for people. What a big difference that is to the conservatives’ non stop, tiring arguments.’(2)
It seems, merkel who was always comparing herself with Bismarck, is now at the end point. she who followed America, whether in Syria or sanctions, and put Europe u.s follower, must wait for her fate which probably will be same as Obama's.
