Termine und Events aus aller Welt im Dezember

December 1, 2018 - December 31, 2018 - Die World Agenda gibt eine Vorschau auf Termine und Events im Dezember. Unter anderen die Angelobung des mexikanischen Präsidenten Andrés Manuel López Obrador, Wahl zum CDU Vorsitz in Deutschland, Eröffnung einer Teststrecke von Elon Musks geplantem
hyperschnellen Loop-Systems unter Los Angeles, und die Neuauflage von Walt Disneys Mary Poppins.

Dec 1, Mexico: Andrés Manuel López Obrador begins a 6-year term in office as the country’s 58th president. He vows to scorn the expensive trappings of the job as he bids to boost the struggling economy, and to create a national guard to tackle the scourge of spiralling crime

Dec 3, Kazakhstan: The Soyuz launch to the ISS promises to be fraught, as the last attempt failed. Apart from the risk to the crew, a second failure could ground Soyuz and put the orbiting laboratory beyond reach

Dec 7, Germany: Jens Spahn, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbaue and Friedrich Merz are seen as the front-runners to replace Angela Merkel as leader of the Christian Democrats. After dismal election showings in Bavaria and Hesse, Chancellor Merkel announced that she would not stand again for the CDU party leadership

Dec 10-11, U.S.: A test section of Elon Musk’s envisioned hyper-fast loop system under Los Angeles opens to the public. Passengers will be whisked on an electric-powered platform at 240km/h along three kilometres of tunnel

Dec 13-14, European Union: EU leaders meet to deal with the outcome of November’s special summit to finalize the draft Brexit agreement struck by the bloc with Britain

Dec 19, U.S.: More than 50 years after the original Mary Poppins descended via umbrella, Disney’s musical reboot promises to put a skip in your step. Emily Blunt steps into the formidable shoes of Julie Andrews as the magical nanny

Dec 23, D.R. Congo: The vast resource-rich nation goes to the polls. After President Joseph Kabila accepted he could not run for a third term, his choice of former interior minister and Kabila loyalist Emmanuel Ramazani Shadary (above) in his stead signalled that little will change in the conflict-torn country

Dec 31, France: The U.S. and Israel depart from UNESCO in protest, accusing the agency of bias against Israel. Washington wins financially from leaving but loses its voice on the important World Heritage Committee
