المحافظون الألمان يسعون لاختيار خليفة ميركل

April 14, 2021 - Germany’s governing conservative CDU/CSU bloc is heading for a showdown between Bavaria Premier Markus Söder and new CDU chairman Armin Laschet as the candidate to succeed A. Merkel as chancellor.

The winner of the race will have a strong chance of taking over from Merkel after she steps aside following September’s national election, according to Bloomberg.

They would inherit a raft of challenges, ranging from dealing with the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic and shaping Germany’s relations with its European and NATO partners, to tackling the threats posed by China and Russia.
