GERMANY’S Chancellor Angela Merkel was booed and jeered as she took to the stage in Gelnhausen, Germany, today – to try and convince voters to back her.

Tue, Aug 15, 2017

The Europhile politician – widely perceived to be the most influential in the European Union – spoke for 30 minutes, to a chorus of shouts and mocking.

Around 100 Alternative for Germany (AfD) supporters, some of them wearing stickers with the party’s logo and carrying posters with slogans such as “Immigration needs clear rules”, heckled Mrs Merkel in a market square in the western town of Gelnhausen.

Chants of “Merkel needs to go” rang out from protesters over the crowd of thousands, with many supporters of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) turning out to.

Mrs Merkel, recently returned from a three-week holiday, mentioned controversial topics including security, refugees, the economy and the diesel emissions scandal affecting Germany’s car industry, in her speech.

The German Chancellor hit back at the protesters at the rally around 25 miles east of Frankfurt, saying Germany was a “democracy where people can show their discontent”.

But she added: “Sometimes listening a bit isn’t a bad thing”.

Mrs Merkel is seeking a fourth term in next month’s election, months after changing her tone on immigration.

She previously advocated an open door policy which saw more than one million African and Middle Eastern refugees arrive in Germany in 2015.

The backlash was intense – and every time a migrant committed a crime – calls for her resignation grew louder.

Mrs Merkel drew boos mixed with applause when she thanked volunteers and professionals who helped migrants.

She said: “Of course we can’t allow a year like 2015 to recur every year.”
