SOURCES have told a key German correspondent that the politicians calling for Angela Merkel to leave her position as leader “are growing by the day inside her own party”.

The shock revelation comes just as Angela Merkel sets her sights on Martin Schulz’s Social Democrat Party to save her from enduring another election.

Mrs Merkel’s previous attempt at forming a government collapsed last week when coalition talks failed to reach an agreement.

Stefanie Bolzen, who reports for German paper Die Welt, told the BBC that those inside her own CDU party calling for her to resign were becoming more vocal.

She explained that Germany had not faced a political crisis like this for decades and “anything could now happen”.

Despite assumptions that Mrs Merkel, who continues to lead the country as interim Chancellor, will eventually form a new government, Bolzen said this was increasingly in doubt.

She told BBC’s Dateline programme: “Even if Schulz goes into talks with Merkel, current polling shows a majority of members SPD do not want this, and they will need to vote on this.

“This means even if the elite and leadership want it, another grand coalition is unlikely.

“At the moment, Merkel is watching the other parties collapsing, but she has to be careful because there are voices growing every day in the CDU calling for new leadership.”
