Merkel said that politicians always have to wonder how far he would go in search of a compromise. While the Chancellor declined to name, noting that he is not going to resign.
24 September, Germany will hold elections to the Bundestag. The favorite of the race is considered the Christian democratic Union (CDU) of Angela Merkel. In case of victory she would become Chancellor of Germany for the fourth time in a row. Merkel is head of the German government since 2005.
