ANGELA Merkel’s long reign at the top of German politics is very nearly at an end, according to a senior member of the country’s Green party.

Hans-Christian Ströbele, who helped co-found the party that would become the Greens in the 1980s, said he could not envisage the Chancellor staying in her role for much longer.

Despite her best attempts to secure a fourth term as Chancellor, Mrs Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union party (CDU) suffered heavy losses in September’s elections, and she has failed to cobble together a so-called Jamaica alliance with the Greens and the Free Democrats (FDP).

Depending on what Germany’s president Frank-Walter Steinmeier decides, millions of voters could find themselves going back to the polls next year for a snap election, or he could tell Ms Merkel, Europe’s most powerful leader after 12 years in office, to seek further coalition talks.

There is also the option of forming a minority government, sonething Ms Merkel herself has said she would rather not do.

Mr Ströbele said, whatever the outcome, he does not think Mrs Merkel will be presiding over the Bundestag for long.

In an interview with Swiss website Watson, he said: “The end of the chancellorship of Angela Merkel has already been announced by the outcome of the general election.

“Now Merkel’s political end can indeed come very quickly. In my opinion, Mrs Merkel will not be able to stay at the top of the government for much longer.”

The veteran politcian said his personal preference to solve the current crisis would be for the CDU to form a minority government, calling it “good for democracy”.

He said: “It offers the opportunity to strengthen the importance of the parliament and the individual members of parliament – and with it also democracy.

“It is basically good for democracy, if a government has to seek majorities through persuasion in Parliament.”
