Merkel and Schulz

One more round in Germany, as Europe awaits

The political drama in Germany is not over. CSU/CDU and SPD have just officially started the negotiations to form another grand coalition. However, this long period of uncertainty has resulted in a fall in nationwide support for a coalition and also for Angela Merkel herself. There are voices arguing for the end of the Merkel era. Merkel is, indeed, on the defensive. On the other hand, we are skeptical about Schulz’s argument for a “United States of Europe” by 2025.
We believe that the way forward is not through closed borders and establishment-centric policies; that’s why DiEM25 has developed a European New Deal, a response to xenophobia and European disintegration. Germany has the capacity to transform Europe for good in order to build a robust pan-European democracy. We would very much like to see Germans once again succeed in deploying their capacity for rationality and setting an example for everyone.
You can join DiEM25 here or participate in one of the burgeoning local groups (DSCs). Germany has the most!
