Chancellor Merkel calls on Turkey to release jailed German citizens

Angela Merkel

The anti-immigration Alternative for Germany party has gained considerable strength in the a year ago and could get 10% of the vote in the election on September 24.

"I could also imagine a (combined) economy and finance minister", she said, adding that this could allow for better coordination on budget and economic policies. Chants of "Liar, Liar" and "Get Lost, Merkel" continued for the entire 30-minute of her speech.

Bitterfeld-Wolfen, a town with around 40,000 residents, is regarded as a high fortress of AfD voters in Germany. The nationalist Alternative for Germany, or AfD, still appears set to enter parliament next month, but its poll showing has fallen well behind the levels it reached after almost 1 million migrants arrived in Germany in 2015.

The nuclear issue becomes one of the main topics ahead of the election in the German Bundestag, which potentially could have a serious impact on the results of the race, Gavrilova believes.

The poll showed 10 percent support for both the Left and the AfD parties, while the Greens were at 6.5 percent and the FDP on 8 percent.

Schulz, who doesn't have a position in Merkel's administration, told a campaign rally on Friday it's the government's job to avoid driving bans.

Refused to look weak in front of the angry people, the defiant Merkel said - "Some people can't do anything else but scream and shout - but we're not going to let them lead us astray". "The Social Democrats have been lacking this clarity".

Her party's support dropped as a outcome and led to a surge in support for the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, which pollsters say could win up to 10 per cent in next month's election. Merkel objected to the constant interruptions, saying "problems can not be shouted through", but was ignored.

Her campaign speech was greeted with deafening jeers and whistles, making it impossible for Merkel to continue delivering her message.

"It is not, and should not be, a year like 2015".

"The problem of illegal immigration is an global one, and we must deal with the socio-economic roots of the crisis".

In a summer press conference that ran the gamut from African human traffickers to German school toilet renovations, a bleary-eyed Dr Merkel insisted she still had enough "energy, curiosity and joy" to run for a fourth term after Germany's September 24th election.

The European Union has already sealed a migrants deal with Turkey to stem the flow from the Middle East and her spokesman, Steffen Seibert, said the Egypt deal would "fight illegal immigration and the criminal smuggling of people".
