GO NOW! Merkel’s Own Party Demands She Quits

An unpopular leader is told she must quit by her own terminally divided Party. No, for once, we are not talking about the Conservative Party Conference but Germany’s ruling Christian Democratic Union.

Her announcement that she will seek re-election as Party leader at the CDU’s annual Congress in December has been met with howls of derision.

Volker Kauder, a long-term ally of the embattled Chancellor, was replaced as head of the CDU and Christian Social Union Parliamentary group this week by Ralph Brinkhaus. This is yet another sign that the power and authority of the once formidable ‘Iron Chancellor’ is on the wane and the vultures are circling.

A prominent conservative in the CDU, Alexander Mitsch, called for Merkel to go for the good of “Party and country”: “Mrs Merkel should draw the consequences of the mistakes made by her, especially in the asylum policy, and the resulting poor poll numbers.” 

It may be cold comfort but at least Thersa May can take some solace in the fact that she is not the only leader set for a difficult Party Conference this year.
