Conservative parliamentary leader Volker Kauder says his party has been winning state elections since the Social Democrats crowned Martin Schulz as party leader and chancellor candidate. Kauder is Angela Merkel’s right hand in the Bundestag.
In an exclusive interview with DW, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, the new leader of Germany's Christian Democrats (CDU), has said that she wants Angela Merkel to see out her remaining three years as chancellor.
Volker Kauder's ousting proves that Angela Merkel's grip on her party is loosening. According to the German press, it's becoming clear that conservative lawmakers are increasingly ready to abandon the chancellor.
Germany decides in less than a month whether to give German chancellor Angela Merkel one more term. The latest poll puts the CDU ahead - and sees the right-wing AfD as the third largest political force.
