Merkel says 'can't stay silent' on rule of law in Poland

01 September 2017

Merkel's comments on Turkey came less than a month before national elections in Germany on September 24.

In an interview with national broadcaster ZDF, Merkel said Germany allows plaintiffs to bundle lawsuits against financial companies and the same rights could be offered to auto buyers if done right.

"We say it clearly: There will be no coalition with the AfD", Merkel said in the eastern town of Bitterfeld-Wolfen as dozens of protesters among the audience booed and yelled "Get lost!" and "Merkel has to go!"

'Taking holidays in the country in which you are being persecuted is not on, ' she said in an interview with Welt am Sonntag, adding that it could be a reason to re-examine an asylum case.

He added that she seemed to "have no plan at all" to deal with the issue of pollution from diesel emissions that exceeds the limits of several cities.

Germany has allowed in more than one million asylum seekers since 2015, which put Merkel under massive political pressure from hard-right opponents and within her own conservative bloc. The Government claims it never put a numerical figure on the number it would accept through the "Dubs scheme" - which was championed by Labour peer Lord Dubs, himself a Jewish refugee to the United Kingdom from Nazi-occupied Europe during WWII.

The steps she demanded against organized traffickers, more development aid as well as humanitarian housing in Libya were of the "same spirit" as the aid for refugees in the summer of 2015.

Although the plan has successfully reduced irregular migration flows and came as a significant relief for Merkel in domestic politics, the European Union failed to timely deliver the promised funds.

Seeking a fourth term, Merkel has had to contend with loud and sustained heckling on her campaign trail from demonstrators strongly opposed to her refugee policies, reported Reuters.

Fayez Serraj, the prime minister of Libya's United Nations -backed government, Chadian President Idriss Deby and Niger's president, Mahamadou Issoufou, stressed that fighting poverty must be a central part of any migration strategy, the AP reported. But at this point, there is little doubt that she will be in the driver's seat after the election. "And not everyone is willing to ensure a fair distribution of refugees when they arrive in Europe".

German Chancellor Angela Merkel says she could imagine the eurozone having an economy and finance minister, but Berlin still needs to discuss with France what such an official would actually do.
