  Merkel party learns to campaign again as election looms With Germany's Christian Democrats (CDU) trailing in the polls ahead of an election next week, grassroots party members are resorting to an activity that had almost become redundant under Angela Merkel: campaigning. The centre-left Social Democrats (SPD) are currently leading in the polls, with the conservatives in a position they have become unaccustomed to after 16 years of Merkel: second place. "I didn't expect it to be so close," says Hans-Georg Friedrichs, a longtime CDU activist in Bremen. "Laschet doesn't have the advantage of already being well-known. He's had to make himself known.

"For Germany to stay stable, Armin Leschet must become a federal chancellor," she said at a meeting of his party in Munich, before the Sunday elections, which augured a tight duel between the Favorite Social Democrat and its rival on the right.

"The question of who governs Germany is not unimportant," added, warning against the scenario of a victory of the Social candidate Olaf Scholz, at the top of the polls.

"Can you imagine a red-red-green government? , she launched representatives of the CDU and the CSU, gathered in the largest city in Bavaria (South) for this last campaign meeting.

  Germany heads into unknown as rivals scramble to lead next government Germany headed into a period of unpredictability Monday after a close election saw both main parties claim the right to lead Europe's biggest economy, leaving the question of who will succeed Angela Merkel wide open. And no party will team up with the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD), whose score fell to 10.5 percent from nearly 13 percent at the last election in 2017 as its pet topic, immigration, fell off the agenda. The far-left Linke party also lost support and was teetering on the edge of the five-percent threshold needed to enter parliament.Until the complex negotiations are settled, Merkel will remain in her role in a caretaker capacity.

among the options possible for a future coalition, an alliance "red-red-green" between the SCD Social Democrat candidate, Olaf Scholz, The Radical Left Party Die Linke and the Greens, is not excluded.

This coalition, however, is not the most likely and faces many ideological differences between the three parties.

But the Conservatives, in difficulty in the polls, made this perspective a red cloth to remobilize their troops.

The Chancellor criticized the tax increases provided for by the Social Democratic candidate, saying to fear that they do not run away from German companies in Austria or the Netherlands.

"It's not our policy" , she said, preferring an "policy that allows businesses to stay at home and create jobs here so that Germany can prosper".

The Chancellor also warned against

"the removal of the brake on debt", constitutional rule of budgetary rigor, and the risks of a " European Union of Debt", that could bring, according to it , a victory of the left.
