ANGELA Merkel was booed and branded a “traitor to the nation” as she was faced with anti-immigration protestors at a rally in eastern Germany.

The chancellor, who is widely expected to win a fourth term, made a stop in the small town of Annaberg-Buchholz in Saxony yesterday as part of her election campaign ahead of the vote on September 24.

But instead of being greeted by local supporters, the rally was hijacked by a crowd of protestors from the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) and the anti-migrant Pegida movement.

More than 150 protestors descended on the rally chanting “not my chancellor”, as they waved banners reading “get out of here” and “traitor to the nation”.

The group also held signs reading “regime change in Germany” and “CDU – we are destroying Germany”.

It is believed the group were protesting against Ms Merkel’s ‘open door’ immigration policy during the height of the migrant crisis in 2015 and 2016.

As she took to the podium yesterday, the CDU leader tried to defend her decision – which she previously admitted she regretted.

She told the crowds: “Many people were worried. They said to themselves: ‘What about us? Are we still important or are only the refugees important?'”

And she hit back at the booing crowd, saying: “Some want to listen, but others can only shout. That is what separates us.”
