We've been told that Angela Merkel will step down as Chancellor of Germany in 2021.
But what if she doesn't ?
Merkel has built a reputation of undermining other politicians who could conceivably be serious rivals for her. They have a way of being shunted into
dead-end jobs and ultimately going nowhere.
Conveniently, the appearance presented to the German people is that, amazingly, in a land of 80+ million people ... only one person is qualified to
be the Chancellor
. And this has gone on for fifteen years
So, recently, Merkel's supposed chosen successor (why is a politician in a country with democratic processes "choosing" their successor, or do I
misunderstand ?) declared she was no longer interested in playing games and removed herself as the supposed successor. Now, a fellow named Merz looks
like he may attempt to become the chancellor once Merkel decides the situation is stable enough to allow herself to step down. (Yeah: sarcasm -- but
for all the world, that is the appearance lent by the limp, Gro-Ko rag that German politics have become).
Therefore, the question becomes: WILL Merkel step down in 2021 ? Or will she decide, because of crisis this and crisis that, that she simply can't
leave office ... and be supported in such a decision by under-the-table deal making of Gro-Ko parties ?
Nun was, Merkel ?
