According to Deutsche Welle, one of Merkel’s weak points is to rescue Greece. With this strategy the Social Democratic Party (SPD) attempts to recover in the polls. The election campaign has a lot to do with Greece.
Thirty-one days are left for the parliamentary elections in Germany and the “Greek problem” seems to have also become a problem for the coalition of Chancellor Angela Merkel. The Social Democratic party of the former Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder sees the opportunity for recovery in the polls and invests in Schaeuble’s assumption about the necessity of a new package that would mean an additional cost for Germany.
What is certain is that the election campaign in Germany, which was so boring for most Germans, has now started to display interest. The Social Democratic party, which comes second, sees the opportunity for a new direct confrontation in the election arena.
The rescue of Greece is expected to dominate the election campaign in Germany. The head of the parliamentary group of the Social Democrats, Frank-Walter Steinmeier called for a meeting of the Finance Committee of the House.
