Merkel worried about European parliamentary elections

April 17, 2019

TEHRAN - German Chancellor is worried about the failure of traditional European parties in the parliamentary elections. If parties such as the German Democratic Christian Party fail in the European parliamentary elections, there will be a good opportunity for nationalist parties!

 In this way, nationalist parties can take the lead in the European Union and the Eurozone. This is the worst news possible for the Chancellor of Germany. It should not be forgotten that Merkel has long been the main leader of Europe.

 However, many international affairs analysts have argued that Merkel was incapacitated in the face of the European economic crisis and other crises in the complex. Basically, one of the main reasons for the dissatisfaction of the European public opinion with the traditional parties has been the economic and security defeat of an infant like Angela Merkel.

Angela Merkel has many concerns these days! She knows well that the failure of the traditional European party in the parliamentary elections could mean the start of serious crises in the European Union.

Angela Merkel has announced that she will step down of power in 2021, but the polls conducted in Germany has intensively worried her. The results of these polls indicate that the total popularity of the two traditional German parties, the coalition of the Christian and Social Democrats, have fallen below 50%. This suggests the unpopularity of the coalition government among the German citizens. Merkel now has to run the weak coalition government until 2021!

Many analysts of Europe's affairs believe that Merkel's power is actually over. The Chancellor of Germany is no longer the symbol of power in the united Europe. She has lost the power of managing the power equations in her country. In other words, Merkel has become a "passive player" in Berlin, the European Union and the Eurozone.

As" Telegraph" reported, Angela Merkel has upset the new leader of her Christian Democratic party (CDU) party by cancelling a key hustings for the European elections, leading to speculation that the two leading figures in German politics have fallen out over the party’s new identity.

 Merkel has informed Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer at the eleventh hour that she will not travel to Munster to jointly open the CDU campaign for May’s European elections, Welt am Sonntag reported on Sunday. The last minute snub is a major embarrassment to Ms Kramp-Karrenbauer, who had already informed party colleagues that the Chancellor was to appear and ordered corresponding security measures to be taken.

As can be seen, Merkel has a lot of concerns ahead of the European Parliamentary elections. Concerns that will certainly increase in the event of the failure of traditional German and European parties.
