Comment: The government in Germany continues to think only of itself


After elections in Hesse the right nationalists from ADG have appeared in all land parliaments. But the government of Germany, apparently, will be occupied by itself, the editor-in-chief of DW Inés Paul considers.

during week-end when the world grieved on 11 Jews who have died as a result of firing in a synagogue in Pittsburgh in Germany the right nationalists from Alternative for Germany party (ADG) have gone to the last land parliament in which they haven't been presented yet. They have gained 13 percent of votes of voters in Hesse - the bank and economic center of Germany, the federal land with the highest salaries where unemployment rate decreases many years in a row.

Especially frightening looks this parallel if to remember that until recently one of chairmen of ADG called the Holocaust "a speck of a bird's dung". Now this party is presented not only in the German Bundestag, but also in all 16 land parliaments. As a matter of fact, this fact would have to shake my country and make headlines of all German media. The reason for which it hasn't occurred is in many respects connected with why ADG in general was succeeded to achieve such success.

have bothered Voters infinite squabbles

Angela Merkel there are in power 13 years. And never before, according to opinion polls, her ratings were such low as now. It is connected with a certain fatigue. And with disputable policy of the chancellor for refugees. But first of all - with ongoing squabbles in the government.

Vast majority of Germans doesn't want to see in power grand coalition any more. So, elections in Hesse became decisive for Angela Merkel and her government. If the authorized representative of Merkel and the current head of the government of Hesse Volker Bouffier hasn't been re-elected, the chancellor would wait for an open revolt. In spite of the fact that the CDU party has suffered serious losses, it managed to remain the largest political force in this federal land.

However the coalition ruling in Berlin not in safety. The partner of CDU and CSU parties in alliance, SPD, and on these elections in ландтаг has suffered serious losses again and drifts at the level of 20 percent. And it in the federal land in which social democrats traditionally held strong positions.

of SPD the any more reliable partner
of
After such failure on elections will even more loudly begin to sound appeals to SPD as soon as possible to leave ruling coalition with Merkel: allegedly only in this case the party will manage to survive. This internal discussion will continue to occupy Germany and in the next weeks - and will prevent the government to do the work. It is excessive to say with how big problems it can be fraught - not only for Germani
