World Merkel praises Prinz Philips "Friendship to Germany"
Leader of Merkel's party vows to boost German voters' trust
BERLIN (AP) — The new leader of Chancellor Angela Merkel's party pledged Tuesday to restore voters' confidence after discontent over Germany's pandemic management and a scandal over lawmakers enriching themselves in mask-procurement deals led to a sharp drop in its approval ratings. Armin Laschet, the governor of Germany's most populous state, won the leadership of Merkel's Christian Democratic Union in January. He hopes to succeed Merkel as chancellor, but the center-right Union bloc dominated by the CDU hasn't yet decided on its candidate for the Sept. 26 national election. He hasn't enjoyed a honeymoon.
Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) has said Queen Elizabeth II. Her condolences to the death of Prince Philip pronounced. "His friendship with Germany, his straightforwardness and his duties remain unforgotten", Merkel informed about a spokeswoman on Friday on Twitter.
The death of the Duke of Edinburgh "meets me with great mourning," the Chancellor continued to explain. "Our thoughts are at I.M. (Your Majesty) Queen Elizabeth and the Royal Family." The Tweet was a black and white image of Prince Philip attached.
The husband of the British Queen died on Friday at the age of 99 years at Windsor Castle. The Duke of Edinburgh had only recently been operated in a London special clinic. He and Elizabeth II had been married since 1947. In 2017, however, the prince largely retired from public life.
