- The Bavarian CSU party will support the German Chancellor Merkel if she wants to become prime minister for a fourth term. With that stance seems to have come to an end to the disagreement between the CSU and Merkel on refugee policy. 'Angela Merkel is our candidate,' a party spokesman told Spiegel.
CSU demanded earlier that Merkel's Germany number of asylum seekers entering limits, after last year a record number of 890 000 refugees came to Germany. Merkel's decision to receive refugees from war zones always defended.
Merkel chancellor since 2005 and has so far not indicated whether they will again for election next year.
