The German press has been pondering the fate of Andrea Nahles after her decision to quit as Social Democrat leader. Newspapers speculated on the future of the ruling coalition and the possibility of a general election.
Andrea Nahles, the leader of Germany's SPD, has announced her resignation following poor results for her party at the European elections. The move could destabilize Angela Merkel's coalition.
