Although OLAF Scholz (SPD) and Armin Laschet (CDU) candidate decided France friends for the Chancellery, but in the Élysée one expects tough months. The German election campaign show a very great unpredictability, it says from there.

The EU Council Presidency should also be a means of convincing the voters of Macron's assertiveness in European issues. But that can only succeed if the government search is completed in Berlin.
at the top of the list of Brussels themes that France wants to negotiate with Germany is the "European sovereignty". The keyword is a favorite formula in the Élysée. Defense, Health, Digital Change, CO₂ Emmissions: In the great questions, Paris urges more than Berlin on a pan-European solution - some German critics would be more likely to be a French-European solution.
The fact that European issues in the German election campaign barely play a role is registered in Paris. You can see the positive, it says from the Élysée, and conclude that in Germany no governmental party question the EU's affiliation. Pessimistic considered, but you can also get the idea that Germany goes back to yourself.
