Chancellor Angela Merkel acknowledged that the German government caused unpleasantness to many citizens in 2018, whereby she urged the country for a united year of 2019, whereby she pledged a call to “solidarity and cooperation” so that the country can rise victorious by conquering the “deep political divisions” that has invaded Germany.
Merkel addressed the country during the New Year wherein she stated that she is familiar with the fact the “ruling coalition” taking charge of the office in marched was “bemoaned” by many people in Germany. The said party is an alliance to Merkel’s conservative bloc, while the “centre-left Social Democrats”, that has been torn apart by the inside fights, were also subjected to the same fate.
Additionally, she stated:
“We will only master the challenges of our times if we stick together and collaborate with others across borders.”
In 2015, Merkel had decided to keep the country’s doors open to over one million refugees running away from the Middle Eastern war scenes. And till date Germany continues to feel the impact of this decision. Resentment among the Germans fuelled the “rise of the anti-immigration Alternative for Germany”, whereby the same even reached the Bundestag, a first time ever phenomenon seen during “last year’s federal election” that damaged the German political image.
Merkel is no longer leading her party CDU, the “Christian Democratic Union”; however, she wishes to continue being the “chancellor for the remainder of the current legislative period through to 2021”. According to a recent poll, majority of the Germans who participated in it were in favour of Merkel holding the post of the chancellor for the entire term. Calling upon the country’s values of “openness, tolerance, respect”, Merkel urged to unite in the efforts towards “global solutions”. According to Reuters:
“Merkel has sought to defend the Western order on which Germany depends and which U.S. President Donald Trump has destabilised by pulling out of international agreements on climate change and Iran’s nuclear programme, and with tariffs”.
Merkel has made a commitment of creating a more robust base for the EU in order to take decisions, as she added:
“And with Britain, we want to maintain a close partnership despite the withdrawal from the European Union”.
