According to information from business circles, the decision of Angela Merkel to run for the post of Chairman of the Christian democratic Union of Germany and to continue his political career after 2021 does not reflect the true intentions of bundeskanzlerin. It therefore intends to relieve the pressure on themselves from external and internal opponents with it, thus getting “a break” after the failure of her party’s election in the land of Bavaria and Hesse.
