Merkel Wants Power Over Lockdown and Not Consultations With Federal States

German Elections Next Year on September 26

Germans will go to the polls on September 26 next year to elect a new parliament and chancellor.


President Frank-Walter Steinmeier approved this date on Wednesday.

He is thus following a recommendation from the federal government.

The elections must reveal who will lead Germany until 2025. The current Chancellor Angela Merkel (66), head of government since 2005, is not going for a new term.
