German Chancellor Angela Merkel has announced she will not seek reelection as head of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) during its December party conference, and that she will not run for the chancellorship in national elections slated for 2021. Alternative for Germany politician Malte Kaufmann spoke to Sputnik about the move’s implications.

Sputnik: Angela Merkel has said that she will not be running for the CDU party leadership at its next party conference. Is this decision a surprise to you?

Malte Kaufmann: I really think it’s a good decision that Merkel steps back as the chairperson of her party, but we think it’s not enough. She should step back as chancellor of Germany. That would really help the country proceed, because she stands for mass migration and…also for the European debt crisis that we are facing at the moment. So the best decision she could take would be to step back from all of her offices right now.

Sputnik: How significant a loss is this for the ruling coalition party?

Malte Kaufmann: It’s really significant. In the last few years, in every election, the CDU and SPD [Social Democratic Party of Germany] have lost dramatically, also now in Bavaria and Hessen. The [ratings] of these two parties are going down, and on the other hand, the [ratings] of the Greens and the AfD are on the rise, because there is no profile anymore for the once-popular CDU and SPD parties.
