The recent TV debate left voters rather uninspired -— and the German Chancellor firmly in the lead. Now Angela Merkel went back on television. This time, she faced questions from 150 people chosen from the public.
During separate talks with President Donald Trump this week, Macron and Merkel will urge the US to stick to the Iran nuclear deal. In an interview with Fox News, the French leader warned there is no "Plan B."
The German chancellor has defended the Iran nuclear deal and warned of "another form" of anti-Semitism. Despite occasional policy differences, she reiterated Germany's "eternal responsibility" to Israel.
There appears to be a majority of lawmakers in Germany's parliament who want the chancellor to attend regular question and answer sessions. Even Angela Merkel herself appears to have warmed to the idea.
Bickering has broken out in the governing coalition over family reunifications for refugees in Germany. But the Interior Ministry has backed off its previous tough talk on asylum seekers. Was it all just posturing?
