German Chancellor Angela Merkel to Step Down in 2021

German Chancellor Angela Merkel is expected to step down at the end of her present term of office in 2021.


A party source confirmed the news to AFP, saying “She will not stand again for the chairmanship of her party.”

This is coming a day after her party, the Christian Democratic Union, and its coalition partner Social Democrats (SPD), suffered heavy losses in an election in the state of Hesse.

The coalition had suffered a similar loss two weeks earlier in Bavaria.

Angela Merkel has headed the CDU for 18 years and has been the German Chancellor since 2005.
