BREAKING: German Chancellor, Merkel Declares Intention to Re-Contest

BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – German Chancellor Mrs. Angela Merkel has declared her intention to re-contest for the fourth term in office.

Merkel made the declaration Sunday while speaking at the headquarters of her centre-right Christian Democratic Union (CDU).

She clarified that she would re-contest for the position of party leader, as well as Chancellor. Germany general elections hold next year.

Despite that her poll ratings have slipped, Mrs. Merkel has retained wide support.

She suffered an embarrassing regional election defeat earlier this year and is being challenged by the populist right-wing AfD party.

The outgoing Chancellor said after the polls that she accepted responsibility for defeats in several states.

She has stressed that her open-door policy towards migrants – which was embodied in her phrase “wir schaffen das” (we can manage it) – was a factor in several state elections.
