Star Trek fan who could boldly go and lead Germany
A veteran Bavarian leader is tipped to run for chancellor as the Merkel era ends this year.Angela Merkel has dominated German politics since 2005, but she will no longer be chancellor after the September federal election. Mr Söder is seen as the hot favourite to run as chancellor-candidate for her Christian Democrats (CDU) and their smaller Bavarian ally, the Christian Social Union.
CSU boss Markus Söder does not want to be urged to hurry when determining the Chancellor's candidate of the Union. He does not understand that some in CDU and CSU wanted to meet this decision before the announcement of the Chancellor's candidate or the candidate of the Greens planned for the coming Monday, Söder said Monday evening in Bavarian television.
"It may be that we finish this week," Söder said. But it does not have to be like that - "decisions must be tires". The definition must be set to a broader base than just the existing decisions of the party tip of the CDU for Armin Lashet and the party tip of the CSU for him on Monday.

"The crisis would be to lose the choice home high," Söder said. Then at the end "for years" a new tectonics of political landscape in Germany.
Söder said, with him as Chancellor's candidate will also look different the election program of the Union than with lashing. "I think so, the accents will become a bit different." He goes to arrange prosperity and sustainability.
restrained Söder commented on the question of whether in the case of a Chancellor's candidacy of CDU boss Lashet would possibly be available later once again as Chancellor's candidate. If Laschet profits, this eight to twelve years will be Chancellor. But if Laschet lose, someone else wants to rule many years. "What's in four years, nobody knows," said Bavarian Prime Minister.
Söder had received the unanimous backing of the CSU Bureau for his ambitions on the Chancellor's candidiary on Monday. The North Rhine-Westphalian Prime Minister Laschet, in turn, received the unanimous backing of the CDU top bodies for his pursuit of the Chancellor's candidacy.
